Christian bound for WrestleMania
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Christian outshined 15 other Superstars in a massive battle royal with a pay-off of even grander proportions -- an opportunity to compete at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania.

Fans in Jacksonville were treated to a huge main event in the Land of Extreme, featuring Superstars from ECW, Raw and SmackDown*.
Early in the match -- knowing the huge threat that The Great Khali posed -- the ring full of Superstars worked together by piling their bodies against each other and pushing the Punjabi Giant up and out of the ring. And in a stunning betrayal, Cryme Tyme's JTG eliminated his own partner, Shad.
In the end, though, it came down to a battle between Christian and Chavo Guerrero to determine who would be going to the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania. With both Superstars entangled in the ropes -- engaged in a struggle for victory -- it was Captain Charisma who prevailed, sending Guerrero to the arena floor. Christian now has an opportunity on the Grandest Stage of Them All in Houston, TX. (WrestleMania Money in the Bank Ladder Match preview)

The dislike between WWE Tag Team Champion Primo and World Tag Team Champion The Miz was evident from the sound of the opening bell. The disdain was made even clearer as WWE Tag Team Champion Carlito and World Tag Team Champion John Morrison joined the ECW announce team to trade verbal barbs while helping call the match.
But, it was Primo's Backstabber that abruptly stopped all the talking. The Miz's loss was made even more bitter as Primo & Carlito sauntered away from the ring with the beautiful Bella Twins on their arms. This Friday on SmackDown, Miz & Morrison will have a chance at revenge. But, if WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito and Primo can pull off a win, they become Undisputed Tag Team Champions.
