EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — In an epic WrestleMania showdown for the hearts and minds of the WWE Universe inside a sold-out MetLife Stadium, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio conquered “Jack Swagger’s America,” making his ruthless No. 1 contender tap out to the Cross Armbreaker.

In contrast to the World Heavyweight Title contest at The Show of Shows one year ago — decided in a mere 18 seconds — this year’s knockdown, drag-out fight was a grueling match from start to finish.

After Colter expressed his “right” to match distraction early on, Swagger was able to knock Del Rio off the ropes and take control of the personal showdown in vicious fashion. But the resilient Del Rio fought back with a series of earth-shattering kicks and a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, stomping Colter’s hand in the process.
