Following this year's Royal Rumble event, Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan began a Twitter back and forth that had fans anticipating a showdown on the "Grandest Stage of them All."
Whilst that match isn't set to happen next Sunday, the two are still in the same match and a rivalry between them is set to come out of the ladder match and head into the UK Tour which takes place just after Wrestlemania at the beginning of April.
It is highly speculated that Daniel Bryan is set to leave California with the Intercontinental Championship next weekend as Vince McMahon continues his quest to bring back the prestige to the two mid card championships.
That being said, so many rivalries can be borne out of the seven person ladder match with Dean Ambrose, Luke Harper, R-Truth, Stardust and Bad News Barrett making up the numbers.
With McMahon himself stating that there is no such thing as faces and heels in wrestling any more, it makes sense for two of the biggest stars in the company to finally collide over the Intercontinental Championship.
Dolph Ziggler never received his re-match after he lost the title to Luke Harper the night he was fired by The Authority and he could go down the road of demanding a one-on-one match with the new champion following Wrestlemania.
It is unlikely that the Championship will be decided in another multi-person match at Extreme Rules, and given that the pay-per-view is merely weeks after WWE returns to American soil, it would make sense for the two crowd favourites to collide on pay-per-view, and in Dolph's words, "steal the show."
It is not yet a given that Bryan will be walking out of Wrestlemania with the championship that has been passed around a lot lately. Right now it is just speculation, but WWE have released the card for the European Tour and whilst all cards are subject to change, it is likely that Bryan and Ziggler will still be going one-on-one with or without the championship on the line.
Another interesting point is that WWE likes having an even number of participants in ladder matches so that every participant has an opponent to focus on.
This hasn't happened this year and it seems that WWE are going with just the seven announced superstars, but don't forget that Sheamus is set to return next Sunday night and WWE aren't above making the Irish Superstar a surprise addition to the match.
The Celtic Warrior has a storied history in ladder matches and could add something extra to what is set to be the show stealing match on this years grand stage.
It will be interesting to see how WWE curves the speculation into a positive and whether Sheamus is a part of this match or the Andre the Giant Battle Royal that also looks to be picking up pace as of late.
