Stay tuned tomorrow for the announcement of the first round match-ups, and no, they won't be in line with what you see here as this is in no particular order.

UPDATE: After review, the decision was made to exclude the Walls of Jericho (Chris Jericho) thanks to it being so similar to the Lion Tamer (Chris Jericho), which will remain in the tournament. This means Stratusfaction (Trish Stratus) has made its way into the tournament as a 16 seed.
