.. and of course, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon will be on hand once again to reveal who will be the special Guest Host for WrestleMania 27. WWE‘s teaser for tonight’s big reveal reads:

“We will introduce a man who is personification of that special moment, that extraordinary attraction, that never been done before. We will introduce this man who will indeed set a banner, set a record like no one else because no one has ever hosted an event in front of 75,000 people.”

– On Friday’s SmackDown, World Heavyweight champion Edge defeated Dolph Ziggler in a match that saw Green Bay Packer Clay Matthews count the pinfall for Edge after guest referee Vickie Guerrero was knocked out. As per the match stipulation, Edge would be stripped of the championship if he used his Spear finisher. Edge speared Dolph twice in the closing moments of the match – leading WWE‘s website and others to speculate whether Edge has rightful  ownership of his title.

Dolph Ziggler is speaking out about the situation, claiming Edge did in fact violate the match stipulation and must forfeit his title. Ziggler wrote on Twitter:

“I may not “possess” the title tonight, but make no mistake about it, I AM THE REAL WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Rules are Rules…. ;)”
