Shawn Michaels WrestleMania Involvement, New US Champion

– Shawn Michaels was announced as the guest referee for The Undertaker vs. Triple H in a Hell in a Cell match at Wrestlemania XXVIII on Raw.

– Santino Marella beat Jack Swagger on Raw to win the WWE United States Championship.

For those that missed it, John Lauranaitis tried to dispute the outcome (obviously in storyline) but Teddy Long had him “ejected” from the building.
