TNA No Surrender PPV "Pick 'Em" Contest (Where's Turborobb?)

Not trying to steal Turborobb's thing, but it's the day before the PPV and the contest has yet to be posted.

Usual rules - vote for whomever you think will win the match. All that matters is the final winner, it doesn't matter if it's by pin, dq, countout, etc. Also be aware that double countouts and double dq's can happen.

Remember to list your pics in order of what ones you feel most confident with. There's 8 matches, so your first pick is worth 8 points, all the way down to your last pic being worth only 1.

The matches for tomorrow night:

Ultimate X Match for the NWA World Tag Team Titles:
The Latin American Exchange (c) vs. AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels

Fan's Revenge Match:
Jeff Jarrett vs. Samoa Joe

X-Division Title Match:
Senshi (c) vs. Chris Sabin

"The War Machine" Rhino vs. Christian Cage

“The Monster” Abyss vs. Raven vs. Runt

Petey Williams vs. Jay Lethal

Eric Young vs. A1

Triple Chance Tag team Battle Royal - winner gets a tag title shot
AMW, The James Gang, The Naturals, The Paparazzi, Diamonds In The Rough, Bentley and Kazarian, The Truth and Lance Hoyt, Shark Boy and Norman Smiley

I don't know much about what's been happening in TNA, but hell... maybe I'll make some picks since as of right now I'll have a 50/50 chance of winning! :-)

Come on, where is everyone else's picks?

They've finally clarified the Triple Chance rules. All 16 men in the ring, Battle Royal rules. When one member of a team is tossed out, he stays at ringside. When his partner is tossed, the team is eliminated. When it comes down to two wrestlers in the ring, their tag team partners come back in and they have a standard tag team match.

So it's really not a triple chance, it's a double chance. I'm wondering if they'll work it where the last 2 men left in the ring are a tag team.

See the weekly WWECW / TNA / ROH thread for other TNA news

I agree that they shouldn't name it Triple chance when it sounds more like a double chance.

As for the rules, it sounds pretty cool

I think we should keep WWE and TNA picks separate, as some of the participants in this may only watch one group. Maybe keep 3 lists - WWE, TNA and Overall.

Oh, and if anyone is watching the PPV, please keep us updated with results as none of the sites I frequent are bothering to do a match-by-match update (more proof that TNA is losing its audience)

Winners of their matches:

Eric Young
Jay Lethal
Abyss
The Naturals

By the way, the only match that sucked is the Jay Lethal one with that jackass angle.
