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.
