Big Wrestlemania 31 Developments, Additions, Rusev's Entrance

There were developments and updates to the Wrestlemania 31 card on this week’s episode of Smackdown.

As we noted shortly after it was taped, Daniel Bryan will participate in the Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. We first broke the news earlier this month here on Wrestling News World Premium.

In an exclusive interview with Michael Cole, Randy Orton revealed he intends to challenge Seth Rollins to a match at Wrestlemania on next week’s Monday Night Raw in Des Moines, IA.

Another match in development is one for the WWE Tag Team Championship. We wrote about that earlier here at Wrestling News World.

We’ve also learned a casting company in San Francisco is casting males to work as “marching Russian soldiers,” presumably for the entrance of WWE United States Champion Rusev.
