Thanks To WWE.com for the following:

With WrestleMania 21 in the books, SmackDown! will come to San Diego this week.

And it was an incredible night for the SmackDown! brand as John Cena was crowned the new WWE Champion with a victory over JBL. The victory ended JBL’s nearly 10-month reign on top.

Meanwhile, Kurt Angle and Undertaker both had huge nights representing SmackDown! against two of RAW’s biggest Superstars.

Undertaker defeated Legend Killer Randy Orton to improve his WrestleMania record to 13-0. Angle defeated Shawn Michaels in a match-up of two WWE greats, forcing HBK to tap out to the ankle lock.

Also, Rey Mysterio got the better of tag team partner and friend Eddie Guerrero and Big Show lost his Sumo Match to Grand Champion Akebono at WrestleMania.

Plus, Carlito had an eventful night when he interrupted Piper’s Pit.

Don’t miss the first SmackDown! after WrestleMania 21 on UPN (8/7 CT).
