PHOTOS: WWE World Champion Edge With The Title Belt

Nick Paglino

We’re just two days away from World Wrestling Entertainment’s biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, and the hype is in full swing. Almost lost in the shuffle of Cena vs Miz (with The Rock being pitted against both, especially Cena), and the celebrity involvement of "Snooki" from MTV’s Jersey Shore, is the WWE Smackdown World Heavyweight Championship Match between the champion, Edge, and the 2011 Royal Rumble winner Alberto Del Rio.

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is said to be very high on Alberto Del Rio, especially with WWE’s expansion in Mexico (and the decision to bring in Sin Cara aka Mistico). Edge has been talking retirement in the next year, or after next year’s Mania, so this may be the surprise match of the night.

Noted photographers Bob Mulrenin and Hollywood Charlie both covered the WWE Press Conference, and took a set of amazing photos capturing Edge at his best. To see the entire gallery, click on the appropriate links below.
