Final Match Result or FMR: All results will be based on WWE.com. Some bonus points may still be reviewed via video from WWE.com or the official WWE Youtube channel. If a match is restarted or a decision is reversed, the points will be based on the latest outcome of the match.
Bell-to-Bell: Some points can only be given out during a match. This means from when the bell rings to start the match, until the bells rings again to stop the match. A match is Bell-to-Bell.
Once Per Segment or OPS: Some points can only be given out once per segment.
How we consider segments & Bell-to-Bell on DropTheBelt.com: If a wrestler speaks into a microphone before and after a match. Bell-to-bell breaks the segment, therefore 2 "Once Per Segment" points can be given. 2 Microphone Masters in this case. The wrestler can also get interference points during the match and get attack points before and after the match.
Multiple stipulations: If more than one stipulation applies to a match, the stipulation worth the most points will be awarded.
Previously Earlier: Previously recorded footage is not scored.
5 Man Rule: If 5 or more wrestlers qualify for a bonus at the same time, the bonus is a wash. For instance, if 5 wrestlers jump in the ring to attack one wrestler, nobody will get attack points.
Jimmy Jobber: Jimmy Jobber is a placeholder for a wrestler that is currently not on the DropTheBelt.com roster. Jimmy Jobber is also used to describe “indie/local/unnamed” wrestlers mostly seen in Squash Matches.
Freebird Rule: If a tag team consists of more than 2 members and they are sharing the titles according to the WWE Freebird rule, the wrestlers who actually participate in the match will get points. The wrestler who sat out of the match will receive all applicable bonus points.
WWE PPV Kickoff Show: Final Match Results will only be counted for Kickoff Shows. Eliminator points will count. All other bonus points will not be scored.
NXT is not scored on DropTheBelt.com. NXT is not a live show on WWE. NXT Takeover is also excluded from points. This event only happens a few times a year and takes place while the DTB Trade Window is open. We may add an NXT feature in the future.
Some rules are subjective to the scorekeeper. All shows and most points are available for review. If you have a question or a comment about any specific score during the season, please leave a comment on the appropriate scoreboard.
