Top WWE Smackdown Stars Being Relegated to the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania?

As the WrestleMania 34 card continues to take shape, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting plans for both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn that might surprise many fans.

While the initial plan, based on what has been transpiring on WWE TV as of late, appeared to be for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to face off in a singles match in New Orleans, The Observer is reporting both men are being discussed for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal match instead.

The Andre match, which has had little significance in WWE since its inception, might play a bigger role at Wrestlemania this year given the Andre the Giant HBO documentary which will be released shortly after the PPV, however that is mere speculation at this point.

The Andre documentary is set to be released on April 10th, just two days after WrestleMania, and you can watch the official movie trailer above.

Andre the Giant was literally the biggest celebrity in the world. HBO Sports, WWE, and the Bill Simmons Media Group present Andre The Giant, a documentary examining the life and career of one of the most beloved figures in wrestling history. Andre the Giant premieres April 10 on HBO. The film is produced by HBO Sports, WWE, and the Bill Simmons Media Group.

The first Andre Battle Royal match, held at WrestleMania 30 in 2014, was won by Cesaro. Subsequent matches have been won by Big Show, Baron Corbin and most recently Mojo Rawley.
