Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal confirmed for WrestleMania, first participant announced

WWE confirmed a new match for the upcoming WrestleMania PPV during this week’s Raw when they announced the return of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal for the show.

The match was announced in a backstage segment where the Monster Among Men Braun Strowman also confirmed his participation for this bout.

Strowman being part of the battle royal is disappointing news for many, but considering that he won the Greatest Royal Rumble last year, he is one of the top favorites to win this bout.

After this announcement, here is the updated list of the matches announced for WrestleMania 35 so far:

WWE RAW Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair – Triple Threat Match

WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins

No Holds Barred Match – Batista vs. Triple H

Angle’s Farewell Match – Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin

Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles

Shane McMahon vs. The Miz

6th Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: Braun Strowman

    At this point the Battle Royal is unnecessary. WrestleMania is becoming bloated year after year.

    This probably also mean the Battle Royal will be put in the Wrestlemania show.

    I also think the reason he not getting a big push is because WWE wants Strowman to be there guy when the move Smackdown to Fox.

    Yeah he wil a World Champ one day. No doubt about it. Now is just not the right time i think, He needs some good long term rivalries at the point

    I am one of the people disppointed but I have a feeling Braun Strowman is moving to Smackdown after Wrestlemania. I believe he will get a huge push once he goes to Smackdown may be a United States title run. I do believe he will still be WWE champion someday just have to be patient.
