WrestleMania 27 is now underway. Keri Wilson opens by singing "America The Beautiful" before the opening video package is shown.
A WrestleMania video package is shown introducing The Rock. The Rock's music hits and we're off as The Rock makes his way to the ring!
The Rock looks a little overwhelmed before he begins his promo. He opens by saying "Finally the Rock has come back to Atlanta," and "Finally the Rock has come back to WrestleMania." He promises that tonight will be the most electrifying WrestleMania of all time. He makes a crack at Cena, saying he "trying to figure out which rainbow fruity pebbles shirt to wear tonight." A "Fruity Pebbles" chant breaks out. The Rock continues to hype tonight's show and has the crowd get on their feet and finish his catchphrase, "if you smell what the Rock is cooking."
The WrestleMania opening video package is shown with highlights from past WrestleMania's before showing the stars competing tonight. The pyro hits and we're off... again! We open with the World Heavyweight Championship match.
Michael Cole, Josh Matthews and Jerry Lawler are doing commentary. Cole is in his glass shield.
World Heavyweight Championship
Edge (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Brodus Clay is in Del Rio's corner. Christian's music hits and he will be in Edge's corner tonight and he makes his way to ringside. Edge's music hits and he comes out to a huge pop.
It was noted that this is the first time that WrestleMania has opened with a World title match.
Edge takes the early advantage with a back body drop, but it's short lived after Del Rio hits Edge with a kick.
Late in the match, Edge went for a spear but missed and Clay pulled Edge into the corner. Del Rio locked the arm-bar submission in the center of the ring, but Edge was able to break out and roll Del Rio up for the cover, but only got two. Edge locked in a submission of his own. Clay got on the apron but Christian DDT'd him to the outside. Del Rio was able to get out of the submission, but was hit by a spear and Edge got the pin. Decent opener, but with the World title so devalued, it might be time for WWE to unify the WWE and World championships.
Edge defeated Alberto Del Rio via pinfall to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.
After the match, Edge headed up the ramp and stopped at Del Rio's limo. Edge put the World title belt on the hood and went to kick the limo, stopped and then ended up kicking away at the limo, climbing to the top and dropping an elbow. Christian emerged with a lead pipe and gave Edge a crowbar, and Edge proceeded to smash up with limo. Edge finished by holding up the belt on top of the limo. Edge heads to the back and Del Rio went to the limo and wept.
