It just occurred to me that a few of these people may actually tie in with eachother to create some sort of surprise.
What if Maddox was actually the guy AJ has been messing around with, and he screwed over Ryback on the say so of AJ. Could it be all about respect. AJ not getting it Maddox not getting it and Punk not getting it.
I think we can all agree that their is definitely more to these story lines than meets the eye.
