After earning the right to challenge Del Rio in a World Heavyweight Championship in a No. 1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match — surviving five other former World Champions — Jack Swagger and his newly revealed compatriot, Zeb Colter, set out to create “Jack Swagger’s America.” Claiming WWE was a microcosm of America’s problems — with Alberto Del Rio “sneaking in” during Swagger’s past losing streak to take his position — they set out to take back the World Title and create a new Bill of Rights for “legal” Americans. “We the People!”

Del Rio was not about to let that happen. Since winning his third World Championship, the reigning titleholder had captured the hearts of the WWE Universe and was ready to fight all the people. Although born in Mexico, Del Rio made it clear that he was made in America.

As the rivalry traveled The Road to WrestleMania, Swagger broke the ankle of Del Rio’s friend, Ricardo Rodriguez, Del Rio and his personal ring announcer struck back with a sneak attack on Swagger and Colter, and their treacherous adversaries unleashed a merciless two-on-one assault that left the reigning titleholder visually reeling.

But in the end, when this extremely controversial and personal battle was won, it was Del Rio that emerged with a Star-Spangled victory on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
