As was seen on last night’s Raw, Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens will be defending his title against Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, The Miz, Sin Cara, Stardust and Zack Ryder in a Ladder Match.
This all came about when Owens interrupted a phone call Stephanie was on, due to running from the ring after his supposed triple threat number one contender’s match on the show. Instead of introducing the original match participants (The Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Sami Zayn), Owens pulled a bait and switch and announced Stardust, Zack Ryder and Sin Cara as they came to the ring.
Stephanie told Owens, in no uncertain terms, that he would defend his title at Wrestlemania 32 against all six men that were just in the ring, and since he was talking about the ‘ladder to success’ it would be a ladder match. As you can see here, Ryder is pretty excited about it.
There was also a divas tag match that was set up during the Raw pre-show.
Here is the updated WrestleMania 32 card, and with less than two weeks to go, this could be final:
WWE World Heavyweight Title Match
Roman Reigns vs. Triple H
Hell In a Cell
Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker
If Shane wins, he controls RAW.
No Holds Barred Street Fight
Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar
Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Title
The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Sami Zayn vs. Stardust vs. Zack Ryder vs. Sin Cara vs. Kevin Owens
Triple Threat for the WWE Divas Title
Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte
Handicap Match for the WWE Tag Team Titles
Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett and Alberto Del Rio vs. Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods
WWE United States Title Match
Ryback vs. Kalisto
Third Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, Adam Rose, Bo Dallas and 16 others TBA
The Usos vs. The Dudley Boyz
Natalya, Paige, Alicia Fox and Brie Bella vs. Lana, Tamina Snuka, Naomi and a partner TBA
Another match that will be added is Chris Jericho vs. AJ Styles. They had Styles challenge Jericho on Raw, he didn’t accept yet, but it’s going to happen.
Ski’s Take – With twelve days to go, it looks like we finally have a complete card. Now everyone will be wondering what match or matches will be on the Kickoff Show. The Memorial Battle Royal has already been announced as being on the Kickoff show (wow what a demotion that event has had) and I can see the Usos v The Dudleyz on there too. That will leave a solid eight matches over four hours. Add into the mix the usual backstage promos, musical interludes and such like, and you’re good to go!
