Edge def. Jack Swagger
October 03, 2010
DALLAS – At Hell in a Cell, Edge continued his one-Superstar battle against “stupidity,” humiliating Alberto Del Rio and defeating former World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger.
Del Rio arrived at his first pay-per-view in style, cruising into the American Airlines Center in a shiny, new Rolls Royce. The smiling Superstar wasted no time bragging to the WWE Universe about injuring Rey Mysterio and Christian in recent weeks and expounding at great length as to why he is better than everyone else.
It wasn’t long before Edge had heard enough from the aristocratic Superstar. Just two days after returning to SmackDown and Spearing Swagger’s personal mascot, “The Swagger Soaring Eagle,” The Ultimate Opportunist interrupted Del Rio’s enthusiastic tribute to himself in order to take another stand against something he considered “stupid.”
Still angry over Edge’s actions on Friday night, Swagger joined the fray and things quickly turned volatile.
Before the dust could clear, Monday Night Raw’s anonymous General Manager intervened. Via an e-mail read by announcer Michael Cole, the unknown Monday night authority informed Edge that he will make a live, in-ring apology to him on Raw. He then declared that The Rated-R Superstar would face “The All-American American” immediately in an impromptu match.
Despite an intense effort by Swagger – who tried desperately to overcome his opponent with his infamous ankle lock – the nine-time World Champion roared back, blasting the two-time All-American’s hopes for victory with an earth-shattering Spear.
Will Edge apologize to the reigning authority of Raw in the wake of his pay-per-view triumph? Or will he consider the very idea of it “stupid”? Find out on Monday Night Raw at 9/8 CT on USA Network.
