- We’re just a few weeks away from WrestleMania XXX and much of the card is still up in the air. It’s looking like WrestleMania will be an eight-match show over four hours.
Coming out of the SmackDown tapings, it appears The Usos will be defending the WWE Tag Team Titles against Jack Swagger & Cesaro and Curtis Axel & Ryback. This would mean that Axel and Ryback are removed from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, making it 12 spots that are open now. At one point, based on a German TV promo that aired, Cesaro was scheduled for the battle royal but that doesn’t appear to be the case now.
Also on the schedule is a six-man match with Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose taking on Kane and The New Age Outlaws. Tag team plans for WrestleMania have gone back and forth this year but it’s said that The New Age Outlaws wanted to work with The Shield before the team breaks up, so the card was slightly changed.
At this point, the Battle Royal will have Big E, Big Show, The Miz, Sheamus, Titus O’Neil, Alberto Del Rio, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Fandango, Mark Henry, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Dolph Ziggler, Christian, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre.
As of last week, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper were scheduled to work with The Shield but that’s likely changed with the new six-man match mentioned above. There’s talk that Rowan and Harper may end up only interfering in the John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt match or they may be added to the Battle Royal.
