WrestleMania 30 match card preview: Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

A mighty fine trophy, and the honor of being the first man to win what may become a new 'Mania tradition in honor of a Hall of Fame legend, will go to one of thirty men - once 29 others have been thrown over the top rope.

30 Man, Over-the-top rope Battle Royal (Royalé for the francophones out there)

Dolph Ziggler, Intercontinental Champion Big E, Fandango, Alberto Del Rio, Damien Sandow, Titus O'Neil, Christian, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, The Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Brad Maddox, and three more entrants

For the thirtieth edition Wrestlemania, WWE is bringing to life a new (and frankly, awesome) tradition in honor of the fallen great - André the Giant. I mean, who doesn't love a good battle royal?

Hey, what are you doing in here? Back off man. Why are you calling me Belzer?

(sound of scuffling as deeply tanned man clad in yellow wrests the keyboard away from Rex)

Listen up, Hulkamaniacs! I couldn't stand by and let this unworthy jabroni preview the battle royal in honor of the 8 ton Andre the Giant that I slammed in the Main Event of Wrestlemania III, Brother!

I don't know who this Daniel Bryan fellow is, but I can tell you that the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal is the true main attraction of Wrestlemania XXX, otherwise I wouldn't have come up with it.

I've gathered up the WWE's brightest talent to put on the best mania match of all time (except for that time that I slammed the 11 ton Andre the Giant), brother.

Look at this Big E, his pythons are almost as big as mine, almost.....

And this Bulgarian Rusev, oh man look at him using the Camel Clutch like my old arch-nemesis the Iron Sheik. I am not rooting for that guy, we need a real American to win this.

Rey Mysterio is still around and going to be in it. Seriously? That guy has more injuries then me, brother. Hey you remember that time Nash lawn darted him? Good times, nWo4Life!

I love these 3MB fellows. They are my dark horse candidates and I have some advice for them. If they really want to succeed, three men in a stable isn't enough, brother. Pro tip from the Hulkster: get half the roster in your ranks.

Amongst all of the great talent that's going to be in here though, my favorite to win it all is the Big Show, brother. That man is a giant and its fitting if he should win it. He is one big dude, but nearly as big as the 15 ton Andre the Giant when I slammed him at Wrestlemania III.

Actually, forget all of them. You know what the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal needs...HULKAMANIA TO RUN WILD!!!! Screw the doctors, I am getting in there to teach these little punks what a real legend is.

I am off to train, say my prayers, and take my vitamins so that I can win this thing, brother.

Did I mention that time I slammed the 19 ton Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III?
