Background[edit | edit source]
Edge was originally scheduled to defend his World Heavyweight Championship against James Marlen in a ladder match. However, due to Edge having to retire on the April 11th episode of Meltdown after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis due to previously sustained injuries, Edge vacated the World Heavyweight Championship on the April 15th episode of Fusion and the match was cancelled. That night, Fusion General Manager Theodore Long set up a 20-man battle royal to determine Marlen's opponent. Khristian won the match after eliminating Charlie Wilson, and Edge congratulated him afterwards.
On the April 11th edition of Monday Night Meltdown there was a 5-man gauntlet match which would decide the number one contender to face Joe Smith for the IWE Championship. This match featured Dustin Simpson, Kevin McAlmond, Joe Linderman, Blake Wheeler and Nick Kessler. The last two men of the gauntlet match were Dustin Simpson and Blake Wheeler. After an interference from Joe Smith and Brian Hosmer the match was resulted in a double disqualification, which would then lead to the anonymous MELTDOWN general manager stating that both Dustin Simpson and Blake Wheeler would compete for the a spot on Extreme Rules against Joe Smith in a triple threat match.
An ongoing feud involves Meltdown commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. At WrestleMania XXVII, Lawler made Cole submit to the ankle lock, but the anonymous Meltdown General Manager reversed special guest referee Stone Cold Steve Johnson's decision, thus making Cole the winner via disqualification. On the April 11 episode of Meltdown, Lawler defeated Cole's trainer, Charlie Wilson, allowing him to announce that he would team up with his former broadcast partner, Jim Ross, to face Cole and Wilson at Extreme Rules. Two weeks later, the Meltdown General Manager declared that the teams would face each other in a Country Whipping match.
Another feud from the Fusion brand is between Victoria Lehr and Amanda Johnson, formerly known together as LehrSon. Dissension between the two divas started on the April 8 edition of Fusion when Johnson refused to tag Victoria in a tag team match against Chandra Denney and Katie Barnhart. The following two weeks, the two attended couple's therapy sessions, but the latter session ended with Johnson attacking Victoria, solidifying their break up. During the 2011 IWE Draft, after Victoria lost her match against Nicole, she attacked Johnson for distracting her. On the April 29 edition of Fusion, after fighting to a double count-out in their match, Victoria and Johnson agreed to have a No Count-out, No Disqualification match at Extreme Rules with the loser leaving IWE.
Another feud between Meltdown and Fusion is Scott Wright and Mark Semmler. At WrestleMania XXVII, Mark Semmler defeated Scott Wright by using Wright's knee brace, then the following Cross Rhodes. On the April 22 edition of Friday Night Fusion, Semmler and Wright would have a rematch; however, Wright defeated Semmler. After the match, Semmler attacked Wright from behind, performed a Cross Rhodes on a concrete floor, and puts a paper bag on Wright. It was announced that Wright would face Semmler in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Extreme Rules. At the 2011 IWE Draft, Wright would be drafted from Fusion to Meltdown.
