The traditional battle royal may not be returning for Wrestlemania 34 this year.
According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, WWE may not bring back the match this year. On the most recent installment of Wrestling Observer Live, Alvarez mentioned that he’s been told through a few sources that, instead of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, WWE may opt for a woman’s battle royal.
As of now, there’s no reason why the match wouldn’t be returning. In fact, WWE talent like Wolfgang have hinted at entering the battle royal this year, so it’s possible that this could just be a rumor.

While the match had some pretty great implications when it was first discussed, the winners of the battle royal never earned anything from their victory. It wouldn’t be shocking to see the match nixed, but we’ll have to wait and see.
