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.

Winner and STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Edge

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.
