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…. 😉”
