I don't think they've stated for a long time that winning the Royal Rumble guarantees you the Wrestlemania main event, it just guarantees you a World title match at the show.

Rumor has it that the main event will actually be Rousey and Angle v HHH and Stephanie - which is an absolute joke if true

Ive also seen that Sheamus open challenge is likely to be answered by AOP or a selection of superstars who are not yet a team on the main roster (so by that i assume maybe a team from NXT or 2 randomers from the current roster) - i hope it is the former of those two options

No...just, no.
I hate how WWE just has to shoehorn as many people as they can onto the show. This doesn't need to be anything more than a triple threat, and even then I'm still apprehensive against Jinder being anywhere NEAR a title.

...except that Buddy lost to Mustafa Ali.
We'll probably get Cedric and Gulak in the finals. If Gulak doesn't win, we riot. (I will at least.)

Quote Last night on Raw, WWE announced the first ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal, which will feature women from all three brands - Raw, Smackdown and NXT - to take place at WrestleMania 34 next month. WWE.com had this to say:

"As first announced on Raw, this ground-breaking battle royal will pay tribute to the first-ever WWE Women’s Champion, The Fabulous Moolah, who not only paved the way for female competitors through the years, but also played a pivotal role in the first several WrestleMania events. In the highly-anticipated free-for-all, members of the Women’s divisions from Raw, SmackDown LIVE and WWE NXT will compete to be the last Superstar standing in the over-the-top-rope melee."

-- Also with respect to WrestleMania 34, Braun Strowman won a "tag team" battle royal on Monday's Raw which was meant to determine new #1 contenders for the titles currently held by Sheamus & Cesaro. With the win, Strowman gets a shot at the titles, but it is unclear who his partner will be, if he even has one.

-- The WrestleMania 34 lineup currently looks as follows:

    WWE Universal Title Match
    Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns

    WWE Title Match
    AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

    WWE Intercontinental Title Match
    The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins

    WWE Cruiserweight Title Match
    Competitors to be determined

    Mixed Tag Team Match
    Ronda Rousey & Kurt Angle vs. Stephanie & Triple H

    WWE Smackdown Women's Title Match
    Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka

    WWE Raw Tag Team Title Match
    The Bar vs. Braun Strowman (and possibly TBD)

    Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal
    Competitors to be announced over the next few weeks

-- The following are rumored matches:

    John Cena vs. Undertaker

    WWE Raw Women's Title Match
    Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax

    WWE United States Title Match
    Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Bobby Roode

    WWE Smackdown Tag Team Title Match
    The Usos vs. The New Day vs. The Bludgeon Brothers

    Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal


 
I guess it's to be expected that after so many firsts, they would get their own version of the ATGMBR annual clusterfuck.
 
No issue with who it's named after. My issue is adding it just to get everyone on the roster, on the card.
 
The winner of it probably won't do anything of note as the trophy winner either.

And let's not forget the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. I'm very interested in seeing what Double J has to say.

I am pleasantly surprised by this announcement, and I would say that the match has more value than just a match to "add everyone on the roster." I mean... battle royals are fun to watch right? I for one enjoy watching battle royals. And as the WWE takes women's wrestling more seriously these days, it should be much better than the one at WrestleMania XXV. 

I just hope this match doesn't end up on the pre-show. 

And it's great that they're honoring Moolah. 

I am hoping for Ember Moon!!

I agree. That will be very interesting. I am still shocked his name was announced.

That's what I thought until I saw her Fabulous Moolah hashtag on Twitter and got clued up to her dodgy past, now I have changed my mind.

There is a petition to change the name of the match due to the serious allegations against her.

Apparently she was responsible for robbing other women wrestlers, them getting raped by men and trafficked.

As I said on Twitter, will E do a Chris Benoit submission tournament next?

Quote  WWE is changing the name of the first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal to take place at WrestleMania 34. The new name will be the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.


WWE sent us the following statement on the name change today:

“After further consideration, we believe it’s best to proceed with the name ‘WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.’ What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE’s unwavering commitment to the Women’s Division.”


We noted how the public backlash over WWE paying tribute to the WWE Hall of Famer Moolah began as soon as the match was announced on Monday's RAW. Fans were not happy over how WWE was honoring such a controversial figure. Moolah has been accused of pimping younger women's wrestlers and taking their pay decades ago, among other bad business practices.

The fan backlash included hundreds of comments on social media, made to WWE's main accounts and the accounts belonging to Superstars. Various Change.org petitions were also created with one gathering more than 10,000 signatures. Fans also contacted WrestleMania 34 sponsors, including Snickers. Mars Wrigley Confectionery US, the Snickers parent company, issued the following statement on the matter earlier today:

"We were recently made aware of the World Wrestling Entertainment Inc's (WWE) decision to honor a former wrestler during the upcoming WrestleMania 34 event. As a principle-based business that has long championed creating inclusive environments that encourage and empower everyone to reach their full potential, this is unacceptable. We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment."


It's worth noting that the match is still listed as the Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal on WWE's website as of this writing but we will keep you updated on the change.


It didnt take WWE long to react to the backlash

Its probably for the best given all the accusations surrounding Moolah and maybe they should have considered this before announcing it although i think they only wanted to honour one of the icons of her era for what she achieved in the ring

It has got to an age now where whatever misdemeanours occur outside the ring - they seem to overshadow what was achieved in the ring

Quote Thank you @WWEUniverse for using your voice. What remains most important is that the “@WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal” will be a historic match and is part of @WWE’s unwavering commitment to our Women’s Division. #WomensEvolution #ChangeTheName


Steph tweeting the bland new name, when it should have been named after another woman.

By not giving it to someone else it makes out nobody else was worthy of it.

I doubt they will explain the switch on TV, which will baffle those who don't care about the Internet or social media.
