Wagner got MUCH higher PCS at 4CC than she got at her GP events:
61.73 7.61 7.46 7.93 7.71 7.86 Wagner FS, 4CC
55.32 7.04 6.61 7.04 7.00 6.89 Wagner FS, NHK
55.48 7.04 6.32 7.32 6.82 7.18 Wagner FS, Skate Canada
I'm not sure she'll get scores as high at Worlds, even with a similar performance. And I doubt the tech team at Worlds will be as lenient as the 4CC team when it comes to edge calls.

At the rink. Again.
I explained in this thread or another Wagner thread how her PCS could have gone up 6 points in three months:
Mills changed some of the choreography
Mills added more transitions
Wagner skated MUCH better - she was totally clean - and with more speed, control and COMMAND. She COMMANDED the ice and it increased her PCS scores. IF you watch her LP from NHK and her LP from 4CC, it was like watching two different skaters. Being National Champion agrees with Wagner's psyche and she's clearly settling in with John Nicks.
IF she skates at Worlds with similar speed, control, and COMMAND it will be hard to deny her similar scores. Even if she gets an "e" call on the Lz, and everything else is skated similarly (and we can assume she wants to get the 3T on the combo) she will put up a big TES score. As I stated, her GOEs weren't outrageous for what she did and how she did them. If she skates like that...

Thank you Mao-chan!
