It's more than just me being a 'jaded fan' or a 'mark' for whoever, it's a matter of building stars. Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler are just examples of guys who are just bellow that Main Event status so I thought using them would make sense.
I wouldn't be entirely opposed to Sheamus beating Rock since he's still a relatively new Main Event guy but he's getting the Triple H push so I don't think it would benefit him as much as it would someone who hasn't broken through to the Main Event yet.
All of these theories aren't based on the current booking anyway because I think we can all agree that the current booking is at least 60% bullshit.
Ziggler/Bryan can only beat Rock by cheating or some other controversial way, and even that would seem kind of weird for Rock to lose. Rock can only lose to top faces who are meant to be extremely credible, like Sheamus or Ryback, not Bryan or Ziggler, as talented as they are. Tell me any time that someone as credible as Rock/Austin lost to someone at the same level as Bryan/Ziggler on a big event, a rare Raw match like Rock vs Hurricane doesn't count.
