Backstage, Tony Dawson is with World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. Alberto says he has been Jack Swagger’s target for a while now because he believes I am everything that’s wrong with America. He also said that I and all the other immigrants are taking jobs away from people like him. But then, he goes and breaks my friend, Ricardo’s, ankle. At WrestleMania, I will break his heart, his spirit and his pride. And maybe if the guy from Jumanji, Mr. Colter, slinks his way to the ring, I will do the same to him. I’m Alberto Del Rio and I was born in Mexico, but made in America. At WrestleMania, Jack Swagger’s dream of a different America and the World Heavyweight Title end that night and it will be courtesy of Alberto Del Rio.

At WrestleMania, we’re taking over. Ambrose says that Orton, Show & Sheamus think they are untouchable and are entitled to live under a safety net. They think they are above the law, well, you’re not. Rollins says that they are the agents of change. In the wake of what we do to our causalities, there is sacrifices. We have to do what we do to serve justice and we will do it swiftly and without mercy. Reigns says that having mercy is being weak, just like what Orton, Show & Sheamus are, weak.

Cena says that WrestleMania is more than just a PPV, more than the biggest spectacle, more than the event that will change sports-entertainment, it is my shot at redemption, my chance to even the score. Last year, I beat the drum loud that everything was on the line. Now, the pressure is on the Rock. Introduces his own championship, ushers in a new era, has to defend his own championship for the 1st time, and doesn’t know how to fail. I’ve been there before, I’m hungry, and I know I don’t wanna go back. Rock, Dwayne, you’ve been a success at everything you’ve done in your life. Cena makes fun of Dawson before saying that Rock doesn’t know what its like to have your life crumble around you. Remember the date April 7, that’s where I humanize the Rock. April 7 is where I make the WWE Universe believe what I already know, the champ is here. Your time is up, my time is now!
