Meh. You could easily pull the same shit with last year's bracket and say where's Jericho, OC, PAC, MJF, Darby, etc. This year's bracket has its Sonnys and Colts just like last year's. At the end of the day, the tournament is a contrivance to get us where we're going and I'm happy we'll get some weird matches out of it.
And since this company's goal is seemingly to not hang too many losses on their perceived bigger acts, it's wise of them not to load the tournament up on too many Punks, Miros, and Christians.
For reference, here's where we were a year ago. Same place with the same sort of obvious destination.
