Although WWE took its sweet time making it official, it finally happened during tonight's airing of SmackDown on SyFy: Daniel Bryan will be in the Intercontinental title ladder match at the WrestleMania 31 pay-per-view (PPV) on Sun., Mar. 29, 2015, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
That brings the field to seven:
Bad News Barrett
That's a fairly strong list of names vying for the secondary title, one that hasn't been particularly important in many, many years. You could argue it still isn't and this match may not do all that much to change that but if nothing else, no match on the card is better positioned to steal the show.
Here's the updated WrestleMania 31 match card:
- Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
- Triple H vs. Sting
- Rusev vs. John Cena
- Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt
- Intercontinental title ladder match
- Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
- AJ Lee & Paige vs. Bella Twins
