By that logic though, Santino Marella pinned Cody Rhodes who has pinned Randy Orton who has pinned Daniel Bryan. So Santino should be the number one contender to the WHC
Okay, but did Santino Marella pin Rhodes who just pinned the champ the night before? Also Santino pinned Rhodes inside an Elimination Chamber where he would later get beaten by Daniel Bryan. Next time you try and debunk someone else's argument use a valid argument.
Raw-Kofi and Truth beat the tag team champions which usually leads to someone being named number one contenders
Smackdown!-Ziggler and Swagger beat Kofi and Truth who just beat the tag team champions
The sad thing is, that this is how they determine #1 contenders to the tagteam titles now.
It would be a good match though, something we haven't seen in a long time. But like Rob said, the US title has to be defended. Maybe if this tagteam match were to happen, give the title to someone else.
