Which No. 1 contender will stand tall?

After the ruthless assault by Jack Swagger denied Alberto Del Rio his World Heavyweight Championship rematch against Dolph Ziggler on Raw, the “Real American” went on to overcome The Showoff in a non-title match — only to suffer a vicious post-match Cross Armbreaker of retribution from a returning Del Rio. As a result of these events, the three Superstars will battle in a Triple Threat Match for the World Title at Extreme Rules.

Now, with their pay-per-view showdown set, Del Rio will get another crack at Swagger tonight on SmackDown. Can either No. 1 contender possibly be 100 percent following the brutal back-and-forth on Monday? What role will Ricardo Rodriguez and Zeb Colter play to the Friday night showdown? And is it possible that one of the determined Superstars will ultimately take out the other before Extreme Rules?
