Wrestlers complained about not getting on the card They'll just chuck a battle royal on there and some multi tags or something. I don't mind it to be honest. Feels right to have a battle royal on your biggest card of the year.

The battle royal got bumped to "Wrestlemania Smackdown" on the Friday night last year (possibly the year before too?) I assume they just coughed up a bonus for everyone anyway. The weird thing is that plenty of people who hate modern Manias where they last a week because every fucker gets a match, and who pine for days of "elite card" Manias, also loved Manias V-VII which had a match for every-bloody-one and such elite meetings as Tito Santana vs The Barbarian and the bad Demolition vs two Chinese lads. There's surely a reason but I can't put my finger on why..... Yes, I excluded III because everyone should love it regardless, and IV because it was arse-numbingly boring and contested in front of a shit crowd, and you only like it because it came in a fancy box.
