WWE Unforgiven PPV "Pick Em" Contest

Here are the rules...
1 - Vote for which wrestler or team you think will win each match. "Win" means the announced winner, reguardless of pinfall, DQ, countout or whatever.
2 - IMPORTANT : The order you list the matches determines how many points you get for each correct pick. The match you list first, you will get 7 points if you correctly pick the winner, 6 points for the second match and so on down to 1 point for the final match you list. So the best strategy is to list the matches you are most sure about who will win first.
3 - The person with the most points is the winner and gets the respect of the others!

Here are the matches...

WWE Title Match
Edge (c) vs John Cena

Hell in a Cell
DX vs The McMahons & Big Show

IC Title Match
Johnny Nitro (c) vs Jeff Hardy

Womens Title Match
Lita (c) vs Trish Stratus

World Tag Team Title Match
The Spirit Squad (c) vs The Highlanders

Carlito vs Randy Orton

Kane vs Umaga

Anychance you can start including how many contests each participant has been involved in? If you'd like I'll keep track of that and averages.

Really torn on the Lita / Trish match, as well as Hardy / Nitro.

With Trish and Lita, Trish has 2 factors working against here - one, she's in her hometown, and two, the time-honored tradition of "going out on your back" when you retire. Despite that, I think that Vince will give her the win, even if it's by DQ.

Hardy / Nitro - I know a lot of people think that Hardy will win, but he's still too unstable to put in that position. Furthermore, the way most people are picking the card will have us with faces all holding all 3 male championships, which is a rarity.

Johnny Nitro (c) vs Jeff Hardy by DQ
Edge (c) vs John Cena
DX vs The McMahons & Big Show
The Spirit Squad (c) vs The Highlanders

Lita (c) vs Trish Stratus - I find it hard that she retire as champion.

I've been wondering.. how are you determining a tie-breaker solution?

Well, Kane / Umaga and Spirit Squad / Highlanders guarantee no perfect score for anyone this time.

I was close to putting down no winner in the Kane/Umaga match, but didn't think they'd really fuck the fans over with that kind of BS for a PPV.

In retrospect, we shouldn't be surprised. Just having a no-decision against Kane probably helps build Umaga as a monster, and this way Kane doesn't get set back at all while helping push Umaga.

Updated as the PPV goes along (results from 1wrestling.com), winners in bold:

IC Title Match
Johnny Nitro (c) vs Jeff Hardy

Kane vs Umaga
Double countout

World Tag Team Title Match
The Spirit Squad (c) vs The Highlanders

Hell in a Cell
DX vs The McMahons & Big Show

Womens Title Match
Lita (c) vs Trish Stratus (new champion)

Carlito vs Randy Orton

John Cena (new champion) vs. Edge

Pointwise, if I figured correctly, I tied with DX23 at 22 points each, but I picked one more match correctly.

"...PWInsider.com reports that Super Crazy defeated Shelton Benjamin in a Dark Match that took place prior to the Unforgiven PPV on Sunday night in Toronto, Ontario, Canada..."

Where the hell is the justice in this? Did Benjamin make someone mad? Randy Orton is being "punished" by going over Carlito last night while Benjamin is being jobbed out in dark matches?

Here are the final results...
A tie win between MovieExchange and dx23

I don't know what to do about a tie breaker... MovieExchange got the most matches right (76432), but dx23 got more big point matches right, the only person to get his top 4 all correct (7654). I vote for calling it a tie and giving them both a point for the win.

MovieExchange - 22
dx23 - 22
Lunatikk - 18
Rypro 525 - 17
Deadpool - 17
Bill Geiger - 15
movieking - 14
NORML54601 - 14
Mrs.Nesbit - 10
turborobb - 10
lastofthewild1s - 9
edytwinky - 7
devilshalo - 4
