BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Christian & Tommy Dreamer & Evan Bourne & Fit Finlay + Edge: Christian was celebrating his victory with other ECW babyfaces when Edge showed up. Edge got confrontational, asking Christian “now that you’re a champion, do you think you’re better than me?” Edge blamed his behavior on John Cena and promised to be “fun” again by the end of the night…

GRUDGE MATCH
Chris Jericho defeated Ricky Steamboat by Submission with the Walls of Jericho:

SINGLES MATCH
Kane defeated C.M. Punk:

I QUIT MATCH
Jeff Hardy defeated Matt Hardy: The finish saw Jeff duct tape Matt to a table and threaten to jump off a ladder onto him. Matt begged Jeff not to do it, apologizing profusely, saying their late mother wouldn’t want Jeff to jump. Finally Matt said “I Quit” and that gave Jeff the victory without having to jump off the ladder. The crowd booed, so Jeff jumped off the ladder and crashed Matt through the table anyway!

IN THE RING (KHALI KISS-CAM)
The Great Khali & Ranjin Singh + Santina Marella: The Great Khali was ready to kiss Santina, but she claimed she was in love with Jim Ross. Sanjin Singh told Santino to prove it by kissing JR, but JR said “that’s not going to happen.” Beth Phoenix came out and told Khali that Santina was a man, and demanded a match for the Miss WrestleMania crown. Beth called Khali the world’s biggest idiot, so Khali chopped her down! Santina accepted the match and quickly pinned a stunned Beth Phoenix.

SIX MAN TAG FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP
Legacy (Randy Orton & Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase Jr.) defeated Triple H (WWE champion) & Batista & Shane McMahon: If any member of Legacy won the match, then Randy Orton would win the WWE championship. Plus the title can change hands on a disqualification or count out. Late in the match, Batista grabbed a chair and wanted to use it, but Triple H stopped him because he would lose his title on a DQ. Randy Orton RKO’d HHH but only got a two count. Orton then punt kicked HHH and scored the 1-2-3 to win the match and the WWE championship!

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE – LAST MAN STANDING MATCh
Edge defeated John Cena to win the World Heavyweight title: After a brutal match, Edge hit John Cena with a conchairto on the stage, but Cena barely answered the 10-count. The Big Show came out and choke-slammed Cena off the stage threw some electrical equipment, and Cena couldn’t answer the 10-count – so Edge was given the World Heavyweight title! John Cena was being stretched out of the building as the PPV was going off the air..
