WWE gave us its latest annual pay-per-view (PPV) event, the Elimination Chamber 2013 last night (Feb. 17) live from the New Orleans Arena in NOLA. The show featured The Rock again defeating CM Punk to retain the WWE Heavyweight Championship...
That's two points for everyone who guessed that correctly. Plus, of course the epic Elimination Chamber Match, with none other than Jack Swagger coming out on top and headed to WrestleMania this summer -- not to mention massive bonus points to be accrued with that match, or penalty points to be wary of. The other three matches on the card were worth one point a piece. Reminder of all the rules for event twelve in our PPV Pick Em Season: Elimination Chamber edition are:
You get 2 points - For correctly predicting the main event (whichever match goes on last).
You get 1 point - For each correct prediction of the undercard matches.
This continues for every WWE and TNA PPV event until the end of the season, which culminates just before SummerSlam 2013, when the points will be added and a winner crowned. Your prize will be The Big Gold Belt, so let's hope you made your picks count, folks.
NOTE: There are special bonus points available for this event, and also points penalties this time around as well; seeing as the Elimination Chamber is all about elimination, and success against the odds. Your GM & your Asst. GM discussed the matter together last week, and we decided what you needed to pick, as well as the bonus points or penalties you are subject to:
2 point bonus - For every correct pick of each entrant's order of exit
(-1) point penalty - For every incorrect pick of each entrant's order of exit
0 point bonus/penalty - For opting NOT to pick the exit order of any participant. No risk = no gain
5 point bonus - For correctly picking the winner of the Elimination Chamber match
25 point bonus - For correctly picking every exit, in the correct order, AND the correct winner
Now, onto the line-up for Elimination Chamber:
- Pre-Show Tag Match: Team Brody & Sweet T (1 point)
- Main Event Winner: The Rock (2 points)
- WHC Match: Alberto Del Rio (1 point)
