WWE announces 26 wrestlers for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

With just over one week to go until WrestleMania 35 on Sun., April 7, 2019, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, it seemed strange WWE had announced just three participants for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Those three were Braun Strowman and SNL cast members Colin Jost and Michael Che.


Just today, WWE announced 26 more in one news drop:

  • Andrade
  • Apollo Crews
  • Titus O’Neil
  • Tyler Breeze
  • Jinder Mahal
  • No Way Jose
  • Bobby Roode
  • Chad Gable
  • Kalisto
  • Gran Metalik
  • Lince Dorado
  • Bo Dallas
  • Curtis Axel
  • Heath Slater
  • Rhyno
  • Viktor
  • Konnor
  • Ali
  • Shelton Benjamin
  • Luke Gallows
  • Karl Anderson
  • Matt Hardy
  • Jeff Hardy
  • Otis
  • Tucker
  • EC3

There are no real surprises here, other than maybe the Hardy Boyz, who had been setting up a program with the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos, over the past few weeks. That wasn’t picked up in any meaningful way, however.

It’s also worth noting The Usos and The Revival both avoided this match, so they could still be planned for separate matches.
