My PPV Rankings Via SCIENCE

Hi Scott,
I don’t know if you remember, but 10 years ago (!) I sent you a list of the all the WWE PPV’s you have reviewed in descending order of average match rating.
Total star ratings of each match divided by the number of matches on the card (DUDs or matches with negative numbers were given a zero). Re-rants were taken into account and the scores would replace the original rant score.
Some time after that, I obtained a life. However, I’ve recently had some time on my hands, so I thought you might like an updated list to share with your readers! Please see the attached.
There are some interesting results… For example, did you know Backlash 2007 is the 4th greatest WWE PPV ever according to your ratings 🙂
Regards and Merry Xmas!

I actually thought X-7 would have been higher, but maybe sheer quantity of matches skewed things down.  I also found the bottom group of PPVs almost as interesting to see charted as the top ones were.  Not that the numerically worst PPVs of all-time should be a surprise or anything, although KOTR 94 somehow escaped WAY better than it should have been.  Thanks for the great work on this, hope you get a life again.  Results are below…
