Zack Ryder vs. Sin Cara vs. Stardust ended in a No Contest
“KO-Mania” just got manic. What seemed like a foolproof attempt by Kevin Owens to rid himself of his would-be challengers at WrestleMania went south in a hurry when The Prizefighter subbed Zack Ryder, Sin Cara and Stardust into the already announced No. 1 Contender’s Match that was presumed to involve Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and The Miz. Hey, he asked for a Triple Threat. He never specified who would be in the match.
Unfortunately, Owens’ plans went south in a hurry when Zayn, Ziggler and Miz came to the ring to confront the Intercontinental Champion, leading to brawl between everybody involved. That strategy ended up working out for them better than they could have ever hoped: While Stephanie McMahon was willing to humor Owens’ machinations earlier in the night, she had less patience for his failure to follow through, and as a result, “KO-Mania” was officially christened with an Intercontinental Title Ladder Match pitting KO against Zayn, Ziggler, Miz, Ryder, Sin Cara and Stardust.
