Road to Wrestlemania 31- Week 8

This week on the Road to Wrestlemania we saw mind games played and a shocking alliance at the end of Raw. The buildup to Wrestlemania has been getting better and it has me intrigued. The card is completely set and ready to go. Here are the results from TV from this past week
-Nikki Bella defeated AJ Lee
-Ryback defeated The Miz
-Cesaro/Tyson Kidd defeated The New Day
-Daniel Bryan/Dolph Ziggler/Dean Ambrose defeated Bad News Barrett/Luke Harper/Stardust
Paige defeated Brie Bella
-Dolph Ziggler won the Intercontinental Title Contender Gauntlet Match which featured Daniel Bryan, Stardust, R-Truth, Luke Harper and Dean Ambrose
-Cesaro/Tyson Kidd/Natalya defeated Los Matadores/El Torito
-Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins/Kane
Now the fact that there were only eight matches in five hours of television was a little disappointing but as a fan I understand you have to build the stories heading into the biggest show of the year. I can honestly tell you that the end of Raw was awesome when Sting showed up to help Randy Orton fend off The Authority. I also enjoyed the Orton appeared on Smackdown and cleaned house again. It reminded me of the old Sting-nWo storyline in WCW. 
The highlight of this Wrestlemania season has been the Intercontinental Championship picture. The tag matches, the gauntlet, and the fact it’s been handled like a hot potato has been extremely fun to watch. I maintain my original statement and say that the match of the night will be the ladder match. All seven guys are hungry and want to be main eventers. I also am intrigued by Sting versus Triple H and Bray Wyatt vs. The Undertaker. Sting or The Undertaker have not been in a match in over a year so I will be curious to see their condition, their abilities and whether or not they can carry a good match. A lot of questions headed into Wrestlemania and in a weeks time they will be completely answered.
