The 17th event in the Cageside Seats Pay-Per-View Pick 'Em Game is upon us. It's WWE Payback 2013, and it goes down this Sun., June 16, 2013, from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
The game is simple. We list the match-ups in this post, you pick who you think is going to win, post it in the comments section of this thread, and I'll tally the standings, which will be posted the Monday following the event. For each correct prediction of the undercard matches you get one point and for correctly predicting the main event (whichever match goes on last) you get two points.
This continues for every WWE and TNA PPV event until the end of the season, which culminates just before SummerSlam on Aug. 18 when the points will be added and a winner crowned.
Your prize will be The Big Gold Belt, so make your picks count, folks. Now, onto the line-up for Payback:
- John Cena vs. Ryback (3 Stages of Hell for the WWE championship)
- CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho
- Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio (World heavyweight championship)
- Wade Barrett vs. The Miz vs. Curtis Axel (Intercontinental championship)
- The Sheild vs. Daniel Bryan & Randy Orton (Tag Team championships)
- Dean Ambrose vs. Kane (United States championship)
- Kaitlyn vs. AJ Lee (Diva's championship)
- Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow
This post will stay in the Cover (that thing at the top of the front page with the featured stories of the day) until Saturday night to allow ample time for everyone to get their picks in. The cutoff is midnight CT on Saturday night. Make your predictions for each match in the comments section below.
REMEMBER: ONLY THE TOP 10 WILL HAVE THEIR SCORES TALLIED. FEEL FREE TO MAKE PICKS FOR FUN BUT IF YOU AREN'T IN THE TOP 10, YOU ARE NO LONGER ELIGIBLE TO WIN.
