What am I asking for? Any indication that the Predator in this matchup could win this fight, you know, kinda what ANYONE in a debate asks for. So far, you haven't given me that.
In this match up, all there are simply guesses because the writer wrote this match up very poorly. He has admitted that he knows nothing of either characters, he has admitted his own biased (but then again, what side ISN'T biased?) decision without any forethought or reasoning, and has left a lot of readers on both sides to guess to what either contenders of what each character could do. I did not write this match up, so you're going to have to either ask the kid yourself, and I would like to say that he knows not much of either character, or we could go around in circles here.
Had I written this match up (not that I would considering that it's been done to death, and no one gets anywhere in matches like these), alot of people would've had a lot more to work with on both sides, I would've given more weapons, more physical statistics and level of gear for what a Yautja is capable of and in possession of, and maybe you would've had your answers here.
In this match up, written by your average kid who cannot spell, or doesn't even bother to use spell check, we are left only to guess certain things and most people here are going off of the films. I assume you're going off the films. Me...I'm in the minority because I have read the expanded universe material, and I doubt alot of people here on CBUB, or ElectricFerret here, overall have done that.
I don't know how much of the Alien vs. Predator franchise you know, Sid. And I have a feeling that you just don't quite care to know, or rather don't want to learn. As a matter of fact, I could say that there are a lot of things that you don't care to learn that any opposing side (not just restricted to Predator) has to offer to the table.
Again, it doesn't matter if you don't think Wolverine should have won those fights for whatever reason, he did, and he does these kinds of feats on a regular basis, so its not PIS. Predator is just fighting someone way beyond his league.
And I have trouble in seeing how he could've accomplished any of those particular victories. Really, I'm just not seeing it and have a very hard time in believing that Wolverine has rightfully won those victories. As you said, Wolverine is a pretty badly formed character who so happens to have an insanely large fanbase, and I would think that those victories were achieved under the Worf effect trope.
Again, we don't know anything about this Predator (Yautja or Hish-- author hasn't mentioned either since he doesn't know either mythos), so we are left to assume. I'm assuming that this is a Yautja, but if it were a Hish, I'd say that Wolverine would win against a Hish. The Yautja have a built up mythos and continuity as they were originally hailed from the AvP mythos back in 1989 when Chris Warner and Randy Stradley created the idea of Alien vs Predator.
In short, the author has made this a guessing game. I'm assuming this is a Yautja, and I could be wrong in my assumption because this Predator could also be from John Shirely's Hish mythos from Forever Midnight and Flesh and Blood.
Wolverine and Spider-Man have never fought outside of a sparring environment.
So why bring it up?
Besides, spider-Man could easily beat a Predator anyway.
Off-topic, but I can assure that I might be writing a match up like that within my own Predator arc on the CBUB as soon as I get back to writing it out. And I can assure that you would have an entirely different ball game right there considering that this is someone who has a vast knowledge on the opposing side writing something with material that you are uninterested or not as well versed in.
In the CBUB, anything goes and more often than not it entirely depends on the set up. See, this is your run of the mill average fanfiction write up... But when you get someone who has a fair knowledge or has done research on their characters, takes the time to write a logical and detailed set up... Whole different ball game, Sid. It's a whole different ball game.
