This past Monday the Road to Wrestlemania officially began. Monday Night Raw started out with Alberto Del Rio coming out to celebrate his Royal Rumble victory. The Miz and Edge both came out to learn just who Del Rio was going to pick. Del Rio picked Edge as the champion he will face at Wrestlemania.
With the being determined the Raw GM announced that their would be a 7 man Raw Rumble and who ever won would be the number one contender to The Miz’s WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber. The other six would be in the Chamber match to decided who goes to Wrestlemania. Before the Raw Rumble could happen Randy Orton got some retribution for his lost as Wrestlemania. He took out Husky Harris with his trademark punt.
Edge defeated The Miz in a rematch from the previous week. The Miz now has bigger problems because in the Raw Rumble, Jerry Lawler ended up winning. Lawler has been giving The Miz problems ever since he became champion. It’s great to see Lawler getting the push he’s never had and hopefully it comes full circle for him.
On Smackdown they had qualifying matches for their Elimination Chamber in which Edge’s World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line. Edge and Kelly Kelly defeated Dolph Ziggler and LayCool to reatain his World Heavyweight Championship. After the match Kelly Kelly was fired and Ziggler laid out Edge with the Zig-Zag.
