I think that was due to Pietrangelo getting murderized in the 2nd round.

I remember Jackman-Shattenkirk being their de facto top pairing after the fact and getting abused horribly. I don't recall Russel or Polak separating. My guess is after Pietrangelo went down Colaiacovo went to the 3rd pairing because he wasn't better than anyone left except Russel and Cole, and Russel-Polak already had chemistry that wasn't worth breaking up for it.
