Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: The legendary Hulk Hogan who is hosting this year’s Wrestlemania, announced the memorial Battle Royal on the March 10th episode of WWE RAW. Though the match has no impactful prize like a guaranteed championship title shot or an actual championship on the line, the last week of WWE TV has seen the confirmed entrants all revved the fans, reminding them this is Wrestlemania. This Examiner believes WWE has done a solid job so far of making this otherwise novel multi-man match that crams a lot of talented stars onto the all-important WM30 card into a contest that could create the career-defining ‘Wrestlemania moment’ for the victor. Four other matches have been locked in for WM30, read an early preview of this mega-show.
