IN THE RING
Alberto Del Rio & Brodus Clay & Ricardo Rodriguez + World Heavyweight champion Edge & Christian + Theodore Long
ADR said destiny can be delayed but not stopped. ADR said his destiny was delayed. ADR called Edge and Christian cowards for destroying his WM moment and car. ADR said it’s not about the money; those cars are like his children. ADR said he’s going to make them pay. E & C showed up with ADR’s car in the back of a truck Christian was driving. Edge said when he saw ADR crying he assumed it’s because he’s a greedy moron who puts materialistic things over everything else. Edge said if the car is like his child he needs to love it unconditionally. Edge spray painted on the car. ADR said he was close to making Edge tap. Edge said he didn’t and now he’s in the ring whining and crying without the title. ADR demanded a rematch. Edge told ADR to buy a new car and drive to the back of the line because there are way more worthy contenders, like Christian. Edge said Christians defeated him twice which puts him ahead. Edge got ready to storm the ring but Teddy Long came out. Teddy said it’s his show and tonight ADR will face Christian in a #1 Contender’s match. Teddy said Extreme Rules is the night WWE goes extreme so the title will be on the line that night in a ladder match.
