As expected, WWE has announced a women's battle royal to be added to the card for WrestleMania 35 next weekend.
The match, alongside the men's Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, should allow virtually the entire roster to get on the card for the biggest show of the year. So far, 13 names are advertised for the match, including former (as of this past Tuesday) SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka.
WWE released the following announcement on Friday afternoon:
The female Superstars of Raw, SmackDown LIVE and NXT will compete in the second annual WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal on Sunday, April 7, WWE.com can now confirm.
The complete free-for-all will begin with all participants in the squared circle at the same time. A competitor will be eliminated once they are thrown over the top rope and both of their feet touch the floor. The last woman remaining will be the victor.
Last year's inaugural WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal left Naomi feeling the Glow when she emerged victorious in the groundbreaking match on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Will she make it two in a row? Or will another Superstar be determined enough to battle through the bedlam and propel herself into the spotlight?
