2002 Stu Hart Classic Winner (worth 3 points):
Hopefully this prediction setup isn't too confusing for anybody. If you have any questions, feel free! Keep in mind that the winner of the Stu Hart Classic challenges for the world title at Starrcade.
As planned, this will be kept separate from the ongoing prediction contest and will be its own thing with its own prize. I'm pretty sure the winner will be allowed to choose an opponent for a particular wrestler at Starrcade.
I combined/modified a couple of K-Nection's suggestions and came up with 'Women's Wrestling Renaissance', which I think has a nice ring to it and captures the spirit of what the show is supposed to represent. It's a bit wordy maybe, but I could shorthand it as WWR in my writing. Any thoughts on that name? And feel free to keep throwing suggestions at me, because maybe we can come up with something better.

The plan is to run it exclusively in Japan, at least to begin with. Obviously all of the Japanese women I signed are far more over there, and none of the North American women I signed had much starting overness to speak of so their pop is pretty even across the board. I'm also planning on keeping the women off of my regular PPVs (with the possible exceptions of Starrcade and maybe Clash of the Champions) and giving them their own exclusive big shows every 3 or 4 months.
I'm right on the doorstep of National. I have 7 US regions at the threshold of 65% importance or higher, and two others at 63%.
