World Title Match: Edge vs Alberto Del Rio
Christian is, of course, in Edge’s corner. They tie up and Alberto takes Edge to the corner and breaks clean…then slaps him. Edge slaps back and lays into him with rights and gets a backdrop. Alberto takes a shot at the arm and rams Edge to the corner and puts the boots to him. Edge backdrops Alberto to the floor and goes for a baseball slide, but Alberto dodged and rammed Edge into the barricade, then slammed his arm on the ring steps. Alberto rolls Edge back into the ring and covers for 2, then snaps the injured arm across the bottom rope. Edge tries to get some space out on the floor, but Alberto goes after him, rams the arm into the announce table, then sends him back in and applies an armbar. Alberto tries a running dropkick but Edge dodges and Alberto sails out to the floor, and Edge follows him out with a somersault dive over the top. Edge tosses Alberto back in and goes up top, but Alberto recovers and armdrags Edge off the top for 2, then drills him with repeated punches. Alberto comes off the ropes and runs right into a leg lariat, and Christian begins banging on the mat to get the fans going. Edge with a big boot to Alberto, then running forearms and a flapjack gets 2. Alberto gets an armbreaker and goes for the cross armbreaker, but Edge slips out and hits a modified neckbreaker for 2. Edge with an O’Connor roll, Alberto reverses to one of his own but then goes right into the cross armbreaker, but Edge quickly makes the ropes. Edge slips out to the apron and hangs Alberto up on the top rope, then goes up top but Alberto runs up the ropes and hits an enziguiri for 2. Edge put his foot on the rope but Ricardo pushed it off, so Christian goes after Ricardo but gets suplexed on the floor by Clay. Alberto gets distracted by this and Edge rolls him up for 2, then hits the Edge-O-Matic. Edge set up for the spear but Alberto moves, and Clay rams Edge’s arm into the turnbuckle and Alberto rolls Edge right into the cross armbreaker. Edge tries to clasp his hands, but Alberto pulls him into the hold and Edge rolls Alberto to his back for 2, then gets Alberto in a modified Sharpshooter. Alberto goes for the ropes and Christian neutralizes Clay as Edge pulls Alberto back out to the middle, but Alberto miraculously slips out. Edge wastes no time hitting the spear and getting the win.
Edge and Christian go up the apron to celebrate, and Edge stops to look at the car. Hebeats the car up and starts elbowdropping the roof. Christian comes out with a crowbar for Edge that he uses to scratch up the body, smash in the windows, and beat in the hood. Alberto is in the entranceway looking very upset at what has just transpired, and Michael Cole wonders how Alberto’s going to get home. Alberto hugs his car and starts crying.
