The "Rated R Superstar" retained the belt over Dolph Ziggler after Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews replaced Vickie Guerrero as the bout's Special Guest Referee and made the three-count.
WWE.com published an article concerning Matthews' involvement with the match, which teases controversy.
"And although Matthews wouldn't divulge who gave him the authority to be a WWE Official, the WWE Universe is left to wonder if Edge is still the World Heavyweight Champion and if Matthews' power as a WWE Official ultimately supersedes that of an angry "acting" SmackDown General Manager in Vickie Guerrero."
The match featured a stipulation where Ziggler would automatically become the new World Heavyweight Champion if Edge attempted to use the Spear against his opponent. Edge hit the banned Spear on Ziggler two separate times during the closing moments of the match.
