Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio
Steel Cage Match

Plenty of great back and forth action in this main event cage match. Towards the end of the contest, Christian climbed up the cage, with Del Rio able to stop his climb. Christian got caught between the cage and the ropes, so Del Rio started to kick away at him, before stepping on Christian's back.

Del Rio managed to get up to the top of the cage, but Christian quickly climbed up as well. Both men fought back and forth on the top of the cage area. Del Rio smashed Christian's head into the top of the cage, and then started his descent. However, Christian managed to recover and started to get down the other side as well. Both men ended up dangling towards the end, but Christian managed to drop first for the win!

Post-match, Cole pointed out that Del Rio's arm was stuck near the top of the cage. Meanwhile, a sore loser Del Rio attacked Christian after the result. He tossed Christian over the barricade then got on the mic to say he'll destroy Christian now and Edge at Wrestlemania. However, Del Rio's car he drove into the arena in starts to honk.

Edge was revealed to be inside. He got on the mic saying it'd be a shame if the car got smashed up or scratched, but his friend the steel chair could do that. Suddenly, Brodus Clay rushed out to attack Edge. Edge was knocked to the ground and Del Rio ran up to put the steel chair under Edge's arm. He smashed the steel chair down on Edge's arm for a Con-Chairto. Referees and officials came out to check Edge's arm as he appeared to be in pain. Del Rio yelled in Edge's face as the show was ending.

Winner: Christian wins the steel cage match against Alberto Del Rio by escaping the cage first.
