What does this event mean for the future?
WrestleMania XXVI takes place on March 28. The main event of the show will feature Edge battling either Batista or Chris Jericho for a championship. In addition to that guaranteed title shot, Undertaker, Sheamus, and John Cena all leave this event as former champions that are in line for a championship rematch.
After the Hell in a Cell PPV event a few months ago where the cage was barely used, I was afraid that because of the new WWE blood policy that the chamber structure cage wouldn't be utilized. My fears were unfounded as most of the spots this match is famous for was used while a few new ones were also used.
