While there is a lot of room on the WrestleMania card, there are even more wrestlers on the WWE roster. With so many people vying for those spots, you are only going to be able to have so many wrestlers on the card at a time. WWE has a few ways around this, but one of their biggest will not be taking place at this year’s WrestleMania. It turns out there is a good reason for that.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal will not be taking place at this year’s WrestleMania due to time constraints. WWE does not want either night of the show to go on longer than three and a half hours as they are not starting until 8pm EST. As a result, WWE has moved the battle royal to the April 9 edition of SmackDown.
