Not only did Chris Jericho declare that he would retain his World Title against Edge at WrestleMania, but he also promised to end his No. 1 Contender's career, capitalizing on his adversary's "inferior DNA" to destroy his Achilles tendon. The Rated-R Superstar answered back with an explosive attack, nearly hitting another Spear on the six-time World Champion before Jericho made his quick retreat.

Will The Ultimate Opportunist walk out of the Grandest Stage of Them All with the World Championship once again around his waist? Or will "the best in the world at what he does" arrange it so he doesn't walk out at all? (Match preview)

With just 48 hours until 10 Money in the Bank Ladder Match combatants risk it all for glory at WrestleMania, they locked horns in a monumental Raw vs. SmackDown 10-Man Tag Team Match. But when bedlam took center stage, Drew McIntyre tagged himself into the action and defeated Christian with the Future Shock.

However, when the "Chosen One" tried to make a statement of superiority by climbing the ladder and grabbing the Money in the Bank briefcase after the bell, his nine WrestleMania opponents returned to the ring, knocking him off the ladder before throwing it down on top of him. Who will climb to ultimate triumph at the Show of Shows? (Match preview)

SmackDown Official Consultant Vickie Guerrero used her authority to turn her match with The Glamazon into a five-on-one Handicap Match. Although The Fabulous Firebird held her own against incredible odds, Michelle eventually blasted her with a hard kick to the face, allowing Guerrero to tag in for the pin.

But when Guerrero climbed the ropes to attempt a post--- match frog splash, Mickie James - returning from injury -- Kelly Kelly, Gail Kim and Eve all stormed to the ring. The arriving Divas cleaned house until only Beth and Vickie were left. As Vickie tried to escape, The Glamazon pulled off her pants, sending the humiliated former SmackDown General Manager running for cover.

When The Miz tried to get involved in the action, John Morrison quickly thwarted his interference. Big Show attempted a chokeslam on Truth, but ended up the recipient of a double-DDT at the hands of his rapping Superstar and the emerging Guru of Greatness. Though this double-team effect gave The World's Largest Athlete a disqualification victory, both Superstars ended up laid out on the canvas.

Can R-Truth and John Morrison carry their momentum to WrestleMania as they attempt to capture the Unified Tag Team Championships from Big Show and The Miz? (Match preview)
