No, you’re not — no!’ So then we talked a lot and then decided, like, ‘What if there’s a tournament for the #1 contendership so the people, they don’t know that they’re actually going to be competing for the title. And then right as they go to have that last match, whoever gets there at the end, then I tell them, ‘Well, actually this is for the title”.
