WrestleMania 29 results: Alberto Del Rio armbars Jack Swagger

Gallo Images

Racism has been definitively defeated by Alberto Del Rio. Sorry, racists!

Americans everywhere who hate bigotry have a champion! Alberto Del Rio retained the WWE Heavyweight Title by defeating Jack Swagger via submission at WrestleMania.

Swagger, who is a REAL AMERICAN, came into WrestleMania hoping to reclaim both the WWE Heavyweight Title and HIS COUNTRY from Del Rio, who is Mexican. Swagger's manager, Zeb Colter, is hilariously racist and has convinced Swagger that he should also be racist. Del Rio's best friend and announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, who had his ankle broken by Swagger, crutched out and delivered Del Rio's entire intro in Spanish. So, this one had a nice, spicy build-up.

Things got real when Del Rio delivered a big kick to the face of Swagger and pinned him, but Colter put his man's leg on the ropes to nullify the count. An enraged Rodriguez confronted Colter, which was a bad idea, given that he has a broken ankle. The fight moved outside of the ring and about ended by way of countout until Swagger got back into the ring, but Del Rio was waiting and sunk in an armbar, forcing Swagger to tap.

As a side note, Colter tried (and succeeded) to turn the crowd against him (even more) before the match by talking trash about New York, along with Italians and Jewish people. The best kind of racism is universal racism.
