These matches are unfortunately pressed for time and do the talents no justice. Sure, Jericho and McMahon can take quick falls to keep the match moving but I look at the rest of the lineup and feel bad for the defeats they are going to have to take in the name of "tradition".
And most importantly, AJ facing off with Rollins should be an important first and it looks like we are getting a throwaway.
That's a good point but there are a few more guys I can think of. Is there any doubt in anyone's mind Bray doesn't take a pin in the match. He is losing somehow like he has his whole career. I predict Orton to turn on him. That also reminds me, Orton can take a pin as well. In the ideal world you probably wouldn't do it but the others outweigh Orton in terms of protecting. I think Reigns takes a pin as well, he's not protected like he was before his suspension.
That leaves Ambrose, AJ, Rollins,Owens and Braun. You can have Braun get counted out which is the typical big man elimination. Does Owens get eliminated because of Chris Jericho? I'm guessing so, a non clean pin isn't the worst thing to happen. The other I have no idea but I'm assuming Ambrose and AJ get in each others way.
You make a good point anyways.
