*Please note that the 3D Wrestler Status WAPRS© tools works best when match action details (takedowns, by whom, choice, by whom, etc.) can be identified.
*Pound-4-Pound Rankings or Ratings from:
*Forfeits not included in wins per the WAPRS© modal's goal to analyze wrestler in-match performance.
*PDI (Point Differential Index), which is out of 22 points, is based on work by Kyle Klingman & Andy Hamilton. See this article in WIN Magazine by Mike Finn Klingman: Margin of victory should have a bigger team impact for details.
*Takedowns per 7 Minutes Wrestled based on work by Brian Jones. See this article in Black Shoe Diaries by JP Pearson: Phat Mat Stats is Digging Deeper into Bout-Level Statistics with Lemons and Pie for details.
*Dominance is the NCAA's standard dominance factor - team points scored / matches wrestled. The 3DWS Team Point Efficiency Rating (TPER) is the Dominance factor translated to a percentage. This was done to have a common percentage based factor for each rating.
*NOTE: The 3DWS Hodge Trophy page is still an "Beta-Version". We hope to move the world of wrestling statistics further in this direction.
