Default Problems with the Battle Royal...

I appreciate the idea of an annual battle royal with an Andre trophy but I have a couple of issues with it. First, it's 30 man instead of 20. 30 wrestlers in a ring is going to be very tight, almost elbow to elbow. The first 5 or so minutes are going to be very awkward and really nothing but some punching.

The other issue with having 30 is that it's an easy way out for creative. It's lazy booking. Can't make an interesting match for the biggest event of the year? Throw em in the battle royal.

Triple H should come out and hit them all with a shovel and pedigree each one of them one by one.

Probably not going to have surprise entrants too considering Battle royals start with all men in the ring

Unless they do something like the time Kurt Angle went to Smackdown and won the vacant WHC:

There is a bunch of flaws with the Battle Royal.
First the WWE should take Big E out of the Royal and make him defend his IC title or at the very least have him drop the title to Del Rio.

This is how I'd book some of the Undercard at WM.

Del Rio (IC Champ) vs. Ziggler

Amrbose drops US Title when Kane interfears to Christian.
Christian (US Title) vs. Sheamus

The Andre the Giant Battle Royal Winner should also get a title shot in the future. Even if its the IC or US title

I can't see how they're gonna start with all 30 in the ring. There will be literally no room to do anything and the first few minutes are gonna be awkward and hectic.

I'd sooner they start with a certain number and add another one every 30 seconds or something.

In the Rumble everyone gets the chance to get the spotlight, normally it is a flurry of offence when they first enter, but if all 30 are in the ring together that won't happen and many will just be thrown out within a minute and that's their Wrestlemania over.

If I were doing it I would have a series of 3 - 10 man battle royals. Then the winner from each is in a triple threat. The winner of the triple threat gets elevated somewhat to some sort of title scene - midcard or main.

But that's just me..

So your Mania undercard consists of two title matches where 3 weeks before the show neither current champion is included?

Guys, it's 30 men to celebrate 30 years of Wrestlemania. It's not like they pulled the number out of their asses.

I agree that Big E & Ambrose should be defending their belts & dropping them instead of being in the battle royal. All belts should be on the line at the biggest show of the year.
