WWE Wrestlemania Live Update: Edge Beats Alberto Del Rio
Edge retains title in this WWE Wrestlemania live update
The WWE will be not see a new world champion on the SmackDown side as Edge, in what I feel was a surprising upset, retains his title over Alberto Del Rio.
The match featured an early assault by Edge, only to have the tables turned when he came outside the ring. Del Rio focused his attack on Edge’s injured arm. There was little outside help and Del Rio hit his submission finisher twice but both times Edge was able to counter.
The turn came when Edge hit a quick spear and got the pin fall.
Of course the fun started when Edge took a crowbar to Del Rio’s vintage Rolls Royce.
Now, this match didn’t go as I had anticipated. I thought that Edge was going to get screwed by Christian but they seemed harmonious. Of course that doesn’t mean that they will be ok for the long haul.
The WWE knows that the best thing it can do is get these two men in a ring in the near future. Christian is ready for a title push and would be a good change of pace from the usual crop of five or six guys.
For Del Rio I’m not sure where this puts him. On one hand it puts him into the spot of a legit title contender, but there is something that hurts a guy who is in for the title push, but ends up falling short. Sometimes they lose credibility in the eyes of the fans.
I’d say if the WWE is smart they need to get the belt in the hands of Del Rio soon while he still has the momentum.
For a look at the lovely ladies for this night’s WrestleMania 27
