411's WWE RPI Rankings 05.06.13
Posted by MP Schroeder on 05.06.2013





Click here for the entire spreadsheet containing win/loss records and detailed calculations for the past three months.

Overview of this week's rankings
The Undertaker remains on top of this week's RPI rankings but all three members of the Shield are close behind with their wins over Daniel Bryan, John Cena, and Kane. Speaking of Team Hell No and the Tag Team Division, it is startling to consider than they have not faced Rhodes Scholars a single time in the last three months. Based upon RPI rankings, it could easily be argued that Rhodes Scholars are the number 1 contenders for the Tag Titles. It will be interesting to see what lies ahead for the four of them heading into Extreme Rules.

The Rock has taken the biggest tumble over the last four weeks. This isn't altogether surprising with his loss against John Cena at Wrestlemania and the string of losses suffered by his previous opponent, CM Punk.

RPI rankings successfully predicted the winner in 11 out of 15 matches over the last week, slightly less than what would be predicted based solely on win/loss percentages (13 out of 15 matches correctly predicted).

RPI Explained
The ratings percentage index (RPI; out of 100) is a method which ranks teams or individuals based upon their wins, losses and strength of schedule. It is used by the NCAA to aid in the selecting and seeding of teams appearing in tournaments such as basketball's March Madness.

Why are RPI rankings superior to simple win-loss records? Imagine a superstar that wins matches only against jobbers. Sure, their win/loss record will be stellar but by facing opponents who always lose, their RPI will not be as high as a superstar who wins half their matches but always faces opponents with stellar win/loss records. Using a statistically valid approach to examine WWE superstars will allow fans to determine if their favorite wrestler is being booked appropriately and whether their stock is rising or falling.

The factors involved are:
* 1) the superstar's winning percentage (25%)
* 2) the average winning percentage of the superstar's opponents (50%)
* 3) the average winning percentage of the superstar's opponents' opponents (25%)

Win-loss records are calculated for every WWE superstar over the past 3 months from Monday Night Raw, Smackdown, Superstars, Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam, and pay-per-views. Superstars must have competed in at least 2 matches in the last 3 months to be included in the overall RPI rankings.
