That's just not how it works though bro. Sure, AJ completely fought the wrong fight. He completely ignored the corners advice. But regardless, you don't leave YOUR guy holding his dick when they know he's already at his LOWEST point. In from of MILLIONS of people. You get in there with your guy, and then confront him behind the curtains. Yea, Rumble didn't follow the GP coming in, HOWEVER, if he happened to get that TD and elbow DC to sleep or else slice him open and get a stoppage, you still think they are in absentia? You think that they're hard to find if AJ deviates from the GP but somehow wins? FUUUUUCK NO!! If Rumble wins where are they? I'll tell you where. They're in that cage smilin' and gigglin' like school girls acting like everything is all good. They're in there trying to get some of that championship rub on them. In there posing with AJ putting their index fingers in the air as they try and soak up as much as that blue ribbon perfume as is possible via osmosis. Their prize thoroughbred ran the wrong race and now that he has been put out to stud they're not there anymore feeding him apples and petting him like he's the reincarnation of their great grandfather. Nope. Now they could care less if that royal stud gets euthanized on the track right then and there.
