At Last

May 1, 2011

Mounting injuries force Edge to retire and vacate his World Heavyweight Championship after defending it at WrestleMania, and Christian wins a SmackDown Battle Royal to face Alberto Del Rio for the title at Extreme Rules. The two meet in a Ladder Match for the coveted championship and, after a gut-wrenching contest, Del Rio seems to have the title within his grasp. However, after Edge administers a final distraction, Christian mounts one last offensive surge to dispatch Del Rio, tossing The Essence of Excellence off a ladder and out of the ring. Step by step, Captain Charisma seizes his moment and ascends toward the lights, and finally takes his old friend’s title into his own, safe hands.
