The Andre
The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set to receive a huge platform this year

Well, with the release of a feature detailing the life of Andre The Giant due for release this year, see the trailer below, it looks like the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set to get a HUGE spot on the WrestleMania card this year.

Rumours are already flying around about who could be set to add their name in the history books as the winner of the fifth ever Andre The Giant Battle Royal.

The four previous winners have been pretty surprising in their own right - with Cesaro shocking the world to win the inaugural event after slamming Big Show in a way that would conjure memories of Hulk Hogan bodyslamming Andre himself at WrestleMania III.

Since then, Big Show himself has gone on to win, NXT debutant Baron Corbin became the third ever winner and this year's event saw Rob Gronkowski help Mojo Rawley defeat Jinder Mahal to win the event.

The Big
The Big Show was the second ever winner of the Andre Battle Royal

After his immense showing in the Royal Rumble, I almost put Finn Balor or Seth Rollins in this list, but I believe WWE has other plans for the leader of Balor Club this year and I'd hope the same goes for The Architect.

#5 Goldberg

Goldberg has emerged as an early favorite to win the match

Well, I'm getting this one out of the way early. You can never ignore reports in the media when it comes to things like this, but it still seems very unlikely that just days after his induction into the Hall of Fame, Goldberg would emerge to win the Battle Royal.

You can never write him off though and if he's in it, he's a surefire bet to win it. Remember, he did co-headline WrestleMania last year in a losing effort against Brock Lesnar where he lost the Universal Championship after a monumental rivalry that saw him defeat Lesnar in one of the quickest losses of The Beast's career.
