6. Daniel Bryan vs Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper vs Dolph Ziggler vs Stardust vs R-Truth vs Bad News Barrett (WrestleMania 31)
There have been a few different ladder matches to open WrestleMania throughout the years. One of the better matches started WrestleMania 31 in impressive fashion. Bad News Barrett was the Intercontinental Champion with Daniel Bryan, Luke Harper, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Stardust and R-Truth all becoming contenders on the road to WrestleMania.
Every wrestler in this match stepped up to make the most of their opportunity to start the show. There were a few standout moments culminating with Bryan head butting Ziggler at the top of the ladder before winning the match. Bryan fell from winning the WWE World Championship to the Intercontinental Championship in one year at WrestleMania, but he took pride in this title win.
WrestleMania 31 is viewed on the upper tier of the best WrestleMania shows despite not having one all-time classic match. Almost every match on the show was fun and the flow was the main reason for the success. This match kicking off the event deserves the most credit for how the 2015 show would build momentum and become a perennial favorite.
