Welcome to the FIRST (and hopefully not last) Kayfabe rankings! After months and months of trying, I've somewhat successfully created a formula that attempts to gauge who's having the best kayfabe year in WWE since Wrestlemania 30. Similar to how college basketball uses RPI to rank teams going into the NCAA tournament, I'll like to introduce the KPI (Kayfabe Point Index).
Here's the big rule:
Only non-DQ one on one matches are counted in the KPI
Here are the two factors that go into the Kayfabe Point Index:
Win Score is determined by a wrestlers' win/loss record on the three platforms of WWE:
- Main Event/Superstars [aka B Shows]
- Raw/Smackdown [aka TV]
- Pay-Per-View [aka Pay-Per-Six Months for those with the Network)
Wins on PPVs help your win score more than a win on TV and a win on TV helps your win score more than a win on B Shows. Likewise, a loss on PPV won't impact your win score as much as a loss on Main Event will.
Average of Opponents's Win Score
You get no added credit for beating lower-card guys. The KPI rewards wrestlers for wrestling high-quality opponents on WWE's highest platform. Kayfabe-wise, losing to John Cena on TV means more than beating Sin Cara on Superstars (I know, CRAZY!)
Kayfabe Rankings (Through 6/27/14)
26) Sin Cara
27) Jack Swagger
28) Kofi Kingston
29) Damien Sandow
30) Titus O'Neil
FACTS/NOTES OF THE WEEK:
- Titus O'Neil (#30) has lost a record 8 matches on B-Shows (Main Event/Superstars) since Wrestlemania 30.
- In his 15 decisions since Wrestlemania 30, Rusev (#1) has only wrestled a postive KPI wrestler once this year (Big E).
- El Torito (#11) is ahead of Mr. Money In The Bank Seth Rollins (#12).
- Based on Average of Opponents's Win Score, Adam Rose has the easiest schedule and Xavier Woods has the hardest.
- Damien Sandow isn't the worst!
*Note: A win is roughly +3 points to your KPI while a loss is roughly -2 points.
