There has been talk of pushing the 5th annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal harder this year because of the HBO Sports documentary on Andre that premieres the Tuesday after WrestleMania 34.
WWE officials realize that if the Andre documentary draws a good rating for HBO, then it could lead to more projects with the network and Bill Simmons, who is a longtime pro wrestling fan and the man behind the film. The first Andre battle royal took place in 2014 at WrestleMania 30 with Cesaro winning. Big Show won in 2015, Baron Corbin won in 2015 and Mojo Rawley won in 2017 at WrestleMania 33.
