Will the Intercontinental Title Ladder Match steal the show at WrestleMania?
At WrestleMania 31, seven Superstars will put their bodies on the line in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship. But will this unpredictable showdown prove to be the best match at this year’s Showcase of the Immortals?
Ladder Matches are action-packed no matter where or when they take place, but on The Grandest Stage of Them All, they seem to shine that much more. From the Triangle Ladder Match between Edge and Christian, to The Hardys vs. The Dudley Boyz at WrestleMania 2000, to the rematch between these three teams the following year, to several epic Money in the Bank Ladder Matches, the hard-hitting, career-changing rungs of glory have always added so much excitement to The Show of Shows. And you can see every one of those iconic moments on WWE Network for just $9.99.
Neither Bad News Barrett nor his six No. 1 contenders are strangers to the dangers of a Ladder Match – a stipulation that saw both Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler win Money in the Bank contracts. The fact that every one of the competitors has spent the past several weeks stealing the title away from each other demonstrates just how far they will go to keep it around their waist for good. The combination of experience and desire will surely translate into an awe-inspiring showdown, with countless moments that will keep the WWE Universe talking for a long, long time.
Furthermore, the desire in this contest will be endless. Barrett is currently in his fifth reign as Intercontinental Champion, and the bare-knuckle brawler has shown that he will go to any length in order to keep the title in his possession. That same title is the only championship that has eluded Bryan, while the unpredictable Stardust is just as hungry to get it back in his grasp. Definitely the trickiest of the Superstars, R-Truth will no doubt bring any number of surprises to the action. And The Lunatic Fringe’s particular brand of brutality is tailor-made for the task at hand.
Every year, The Show of Shows presents some of the greatest and most historic matches that the WWE Universe has ever seen. On a night filled with so much explosive excitement, one bout will stand above the rest. At WrestleMania 31, the Intercontinental Title Ladder Match will surely rise to the challenge.
