WWE Royal Rumble 2016 Predictions

Hi everyone.

Welcome to my WWE Royal Rumble 2016 Predictions!

Bolded names are the winners!

Pre-Show:
Darren Young & Damien Sandow vs The Dudley Boyz vs The Ascension vs Mark Henry & Jack Swagger for qualification for the Royal Rumble match. – My Prediction: Darren & Damien – We haven’t seen either of these guys for quite a while due to injury and just not being used….so I would like to seem them in the RR match.

Main Show:
Roman Reigns (c) vs 29-other people for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship – My Prediction: How the hell can I predict this?? THE ODDS ARE STACKED AGAINST ROMAN…Feck it. Roman wins lol. (See below for some thoughts on entrants for the RR) WINNER: Triple H

Dean Ambrose (c) vs Kevin Owens for the WWE Intercontinental Championship – My Prediction: Dean Ambrose…KO is too full of himself to win the title again.

Alberto Del Rio (c) vs Kalisto for the WWE United States Title – My Prediction: 2 Mexicans going for a US title…Ok, well done WWE, but anyway, Kalisto to win since he needs the push and ADR is sooo bad imo.

Charlotte (c) (With Rick Flair) vs Becky Lynch My prediction: Becky Lynch to win. She deserves it and she is also Irish :P

The New Day (c) vs The Usos – My prediction: Usos to win as the title reign for New Day is over and their gimmick is way more over than the Championship at the moment.

Regarding the main Royal Rumble Match:

Roman Reigns is going to be entering as Number 1 (GG Vinny Mac) and is going to defend his title against 29 other people. According to Wikipedia, some names are confirmed:

  • Big Show
  • Curtis Axel
  • Wyatt Family (Bray, Braun, Luke and Erick)
  • Ryback
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Chris Jericho
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Stardust
  • Sheamus
  • The New Day (Kofi, Big E and Xavier)
  • Winner of the Kick off match

So, in total you have 18 people confirmed…what about the other 12. Here is my predictions on who those 12 might be

  • Golddust
  • Triple H
  • Seth Rollins
  • Daniel Bryan
  • Finn Balor
  • Samoa Joe
  • The Miz
  • King Barrett
  • Rusev
  • Titus O’Neill
  • Cesaro
  • AJ Styles

EDIT: Seems like some of my predictions came true :P

Yeah, so these posts are not happening

What can I say? I am busy! Today, I have been busy with getting a new Nologam update out and getting ready to travel tomorrow, so I have been planning for that and at the same time, I have been really exhausted…so hopefully the couple of days away can help me relax and get some posts out :)

Nologam eSports (AKA, NGM eSports)

Over the past couple of years, I have started to get more and more interested in eSports and while I haven’t spoken much about it, I have watched streams and followed a couple of websites about eSports (CS:GO primarily)

Last June, we had started a small CS:GO team that was just affiliated with us, they won a couple of games and quietly disbanded and nothing more was said.

While they were playing their couple of games, we were getting a site ready for team news and that, but obviously it was not finished.

So, now, we are going to go back to the drawing board and make Nologam eSports a thing, but not in the same capacity.

We are going to have eSports news for League and probably CS initially but expanding later on.

This is just a rough idea that I am putting down on the table and hopefully I can follow through with this plan coming into the summer of 2016 :)

 

Weeks are flying!

Ever since Christmas, I feel that the weeks have been very very very quick!

I was supposed to be going to Monaghan this weekend, but I couldn’t due to just being exhausted for some reason.

I was saying to a colleague at work today, “How did it become Thursday all of a sudden?”, like, where did the other couple of days ago?!

Anyway, the best thing about the week being quick is that I am looking forward to the weekend, which is pretty cool.

And now my hours are getting switched up so I will be working later in the every day for a week, every 4 weeks, which is not too bad at all.

And it gets me something to do at the weekend :P

I have a lot on my mind, relating to Nologam, so I might talk about that in my next post :)

Music Bot for Nologam

So, a couple of nights ago, I introduced a new bot into my TeamSpeak known as the ‘Nologam Music Bot’

It sits in the channel and plays music…whether it is from a radio stream, a YouTube link or uploaded file, it can do it.

At the moment, it is playing a old radio station from Belfast known as Energy 106 which I grew up with and still love the music that they air today!

What type of music do you like? Send me some YouTube, Spotify links via Twitter: @PadraigFahy

Trying to think outside the box

I am toying with the idea to put a landing page to invite more users to Nologam. As I have said before, it has been really difficult to come up with ideas that would work in this situation.

Bounce rates are at like 40% which is not good (Should be under 30% if possible) and I feel that more people would be discouraged from the website if they have to do multiple clicks/taps on their computers/phones to access the main part of the site which is the forums.

What is the best way to approach this?

Please let me know via Twitter @PadraigFahy as I am very interested in how to increase A) Hits to the site and B) (and more importantly) User Retention!

This is starting to sound like my previous post :/
