A few weeks ago I looked into just how good the Battle Royal could be if the WWE actually planned ahead as far as booking is concerned. In recent years the company has not really gone far with the chosen winners with most of the winner being sort of short sided. The possible winners I thought could win the battle royal after current rumors it seems that some of my picks maybe doing something else at Mania which is expected. However, it also means that some might not even be at Mania while others could end up being in said Battle Royal. At this point I do still believe that Elias needs to have some sort of a match at the big event with his current momentum; though I do question his status and will not factor him into this battle royal.
Since his injury we have been hearing rumors that Big Cass will be back before WrestleMania and could likely be factored in the Battle Royal due to his recovery time. With this being said I don't know for sure that Cass could be included in the event and may return right after the big event as oppose to coming back for a WrestleMania payday. The rumors are still puzzling especially considering the fact that the WWE could be planning a full draft for both shows following WrestleMania.
If you remember the last post about this match I do select three different wrestlers with only one being left over. It is coincidental that April 8 will not only be WrestleMania but it will also be Rusev Day and it would be incredible if Rusev is able to win the battle royal on Rusev Day. Though I do think that Rusev winning this match would be good it would only be good if the company had a long term plan for the winner as oppose to the way they normally do. Honestly this makes it very tough to want to pick anyone worthwhile to win the Battle Royal, but due to my opinion how this match should be looked at it makes me want someone like Rusev to win and have that be is ticket up the card. However, there have been rumors that things could be changing drastically this year with something new happening.
