Welcome to The Wrestling Times. Today starts WrestleMania Week, the best week to be a wrestling fan. To kick off, let’s talk.. you guessed it… wrestling!
Ever since Alberto Del Rio announced that he would challenge Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship, things haven’t gone exactly as The Mexican Aristocrat had planned. At the Elimination Chamber, Edge retained, and Del Rio struck. That was the plan, then Christian happened. Captain Charisma, who had been sidelined with a torn pectoral since September, exacted revenge on Alberto Del Rio.
So did Christian get it out of his system that night? Not exactly. Let’s jump ahead to two weeks ago on Smackdown. After multiple attacks between the two, Teddy Long ordered them to a Steel Cage main event. By the end, Christian and ADR were dangling 15 ft from above the steel cage, until Christian dropped down. Having lost the match, ADR naturally attacked Christian afterwards, but would stop after Edge threatened to destroy one of his many expensive cars. However, Edge never got to fulfill his promise after a sneak attack from Brodus Clay. Del Rio ended the night with an exclamation when he smashed Edge’s arm with a One Man con-chair-to.
Though Del Rio got the better of E&C that night, Christian still held a victory over the number one contender. Not including the tag team victory over Del Rio and Brodus the week before.
Now last Friday, Teddy Long declared that if Edge and Alberto Del Rio so much as touched the other, they would be banned from WrestleMania. He also scheduled Alberto to face Christian in the main event. Though there were many instances where Edge and Del Rio almost dashed their WrestleMania meeting, Christian defeated Alberto Del Rio yet again, this time in the center of the ring for the 1-2-3.
Post match, Christian stopped Edge from striking Alberto with a steel chair, and instead used it on Del Rio himself.
Considering as Christian holds three victories over the number one contender, and has been a focal point in this WrestleMania build, Christian should be added to the main event. And with Edge nearing the end of his wrestling career, what better way to give the wrestling fans, than to grant the most under appreciated wrestler in the business a World Title opportunity at WrestleMania?
That’s right, The Wrestling Times, together with the Peepulation, demand that the WrestleMania World Heavyweight Championship match be made a triple threat.
