This year’s Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal would be unlike the previous two editions as the WWE made some major changes to the yearly spectacle that accommodates the unused bunch of the main roster.

This year’s Battle Royal would have 20 WWE superstars only and not the prescribed 30 that had been the norm. WrestleMania 30 had 31 while the 31st edition had 30 superstars being featured.

Among the 20 stars who would feature in the match, only 4 names have been confirmed by the WWE as of now. Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas, Adam Rose and Heath Slater from the Social Outcasts are the names currently confirmed to be in the match and more names would either announce themselves, or be officially added by the WWE later on on the upcoming episode of RAW.

The match would feature on the Kick off pre-show on the USA Network and would start at 6pm EST. It’s still not sure whether there would be a match at 5 PM EST – that is the scheduled start time for the two-hour kick off pre-show.

Expect the usual run-down on all the matches on the card in the 5 PM hour slot that could feature WWE legends and stars predicting the possible outcomes.

Here is the updated match card:

Roman Reigns vs Triple H(c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar (No Holds Barred)

The Undertaker vs Shane McMahon (Hell in a Cell match, if Shane wins, he gets control of RAW)

The Usos vs Dudley Boyz
