"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
The way I read it was this: 30 men, 15 from each brand. The winner (one winner) faces his world champion at WM. So: If Jericho wins, he'd fight the World Champ. If Benoit wins, he'd fight the WWE Champ.
