While Undertaker will soon defend his 17-0 streak at WrestleMania, Drew McIntyre was looking to keep his own undefeated streak alive in a non-title match. Despite his best efforts, the champion was no match for The Phenom's vicious leg drop, chokeslam and Tombstone.
After the match, as The Deadman made his way to the top of the exit ramp, he was greeted by Shawn Michaels who -- after scuffling with his WrestleMania opponent -- downed him with some hard-hitting Sweet Chin Music!

After being tormented in front of his family last week, Rey Mysterio eagerly accepted CM Punk's challenge for a WrestleMania match. However, The Master of the 619 wanted their differences to be settled in a Street Fight! Not willing to give in to Mysterio's request so easily, Punk demanded that he beat Luke Gallows in a match on SmackDown -- or their WrestleMania encounter would be a straight up match. Piling on the stipulations, CM Punk declared that if Rey touches him before WrestleMania, their match is off. And if The Ultimate Underdog loses at WrestleMania, he must take the Straight Edge pledge!

After stinging Luke Gallows with the 619, Rey Mysterio appeared to be on his way to victory -- and a Street Fight with CM Punk. However, as Mysterio set up on the top ropes, Serena grabbed his feet, causing him to fall to the canvas. Gallows capitalized, covering Mysterio for the win. Frustrated with the outcome, Mysterio launched into an uncharacteristic vicious attack on Gallows outside of the ring. The loss means Mysterio will now face CM Punk in straight up match at WrestleMania. (Match preview)

Last week, Chris Jericho got the better of Edge on the "Highlight Reel" by smashing him in the head with his title. On this night on "The Cutting Edge," it looked like it was Edge's turn when he tossed Jericho from the ring and Speared his WWE NXT Rookie, Wade Barrett. But, the champion got back in the ring and dropped Edge with the Codebreaker. Who will prevail in just nine days? (Match preview)
Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler def. Matt Hardy & MVP (PHOTOS | WATCH)
In a little more than a week, all four Superstars in this tag team match will square off in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania. The shining star on this night was Dolph Ziggler, who downed MVP with the Zig Zag. Afterward, Ziggler set up a ladder in the middle of the ring and climbed to the top to grab hold of the coveted Money in the Bank briefcase. Who will capture the briefcase when it really counts?

Beth Phoenix & Tiffany def. Women's Champion Michelle McCool & Layla (PHOTOS | WATCH)
With a Glam Slam, Beth Phoenix dropped the Women's Champion for the win for her team. After the match, Official SmackDown Consultant Vickie Guerrero demanded an apology from The Glamazon for hitting her with a clothesline last week. Beth obliged with an apology, but that still wasn't good enough for Guerrero. Next week it will be Vickie vs. Beth in a match on SmackDown!
John Morrison & R-Truth def. The Hart Dynasty (PHOTOS | WATCH)
With a fast-striking Lie Detector, R-Truth downed Tyson Kidd for the victory for his team. Although the win was a nice momentum boost, is it enough for Morrison & Truth to topple Unified Tag Team Champions Big Show & The Miz at WrestleMania? (Match preview)
