In the opening match of Wrestlemania, Daniel Bryan defeated Dolph Ziggler, R Truth, Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper in a ladder match to win the Intercontinental Championship. WWE expected a great performance here, and that is exactly what they got. Lots of good spots. Very high impact. The end saw Bryan and Ziggler trading stiff headbutts on top of the ladder before Bryan knocked out Ziggler.

For those of you that have not been attending live events lately, WWE is routinely running the angle where the Intercontinental Championship keeps getting stolen by the performers who will compete for the belt in a ladder match at Wrestlemania. Cody Rhodes worked a match against Goldust in Erie on Saturday. While that was going on, Dolph Ziggler ran out from the backstage area and stole the title. Story will continue on Monday Night Raw.

It looks like the big rematch between the brothers might not happen at Wrestlemania after all. WWE changed up the script again, and it looks like Cody Rhodes will be in the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship instead. Goldust has yet to be added, but there is a good chance that he will be because he teased a title chase on social media earlier in the week. Time constraint could be a possible reason for erasing the rematch.
