On the one hand, yeah, but the fact that they have moved back to a one-night SOTF (the way it should be), plus the need to replace Martinez with someone who won't be constantly going to Japan means that they might alternatively decide to bring in a guy like Tracy Williams or P.J. Black and try to just make him in one night.
But even if that's not what they're doing, I think Page. Flip, and Gresham, plus possible future entrants like Silas, Dlaton, or Scurll would all be possible winners. There is no rule that says that winner has to get his shot at Final Battle, (most of them haven't) and so they could easily give it to someone who doesn't make sense as a challenger to Lethal but could be moved into that position either with a turn down the line or by Lethal dropping the belt to someone who makes more sense for said winner to challenge.
That being said, the last (and and actually also the only) SOTF winner to actually win the belt with his SOTF title shot was Eddie Edwards, so they're probably going to want someone to do it at some point soon, and the person who makes the most sense to take the belt from Lethal to me is Scurll (based on their little angle heading into Final Battle last year).

I kind of dig that they're leaving so many of the regular top singles guys out.

yeah, that was kinda what I was saying at first, i hope it doesn't spoil on the actual potential winners (this is SOTF, not TPT), but I like that we're getting fresh faces. if you ask me, i just put a rocket on Hot Sauce and make him a big deal from the get go even if he fails to capture the title

They have announced Silas Young as well, with the continued promise of "more international stars to come," so there goes any hope of SOTF going back to it's more logical six singles matches in the first round format.
