> ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL AT WRESTLEMANIA
- Hulk Hogan’s big WrestleMania announcement yesterday was the reveal of
the Andre The Giant Memorial battle royal. At WrestleMania XXX, there will
be 30 WWE Superstars who will compete at this over-the-top rope battle
royal with the winner receiving the Andre The Giant Memorial trophy. The
trophy was shown on screen as fans clapped to honor Andre The Giant. It’s
not usual that WrestleMania features a battle royal, sometimes it was part
of the WrestleMania pre-show and sometimes it was a feature such as the
Legends battle royal or the Divas battle royal on the actual pay-per-view.
WrestleMania 2 was the first WrestleMania to have a battle royal which was
coincidentally won by Andre The Giant himself. The good news is that WWE
will be able to give a majority of its roster their own WrestleMania
moment!

> AJ LEE BREAKS DIVAS TITLE RECORD
- WWE Divas champion AJ Lee has broken a record over the weekend,
retaining the WWE Divas title for over 268 days, surpassing Maryse who was
at 265 combined days over her two reigns. AJ has won the title just once
so her 268+ day reign is consecutive, rather than combined. She won the
title at the Payback pay-per-view in June 2013, defeating Kaitlyn. Who
knows, maybe AJ is shooting to surpass her boyfriend’s reign as WWE
champion although she’s a bit far away from CM Punk’s 434 consecutive days
as champion. 


> DANIEL BRYAN VS TRIPLE H OFFICIAL FOR WRESTLEMANIA
- Daniel Bryan got his wish to wrestle Triple H at WrestleMania with an
added bonus - if he wins, he will be added to the main event which would
then turn into a triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight title.
Bryan got his “YES movement” to occupy the show last night which resulted
in some great visual on television and he and his followers did not leave
the ring until Triple H had to say yes to their match and yes to the added
stipulation. A majority of the people in the ring with Bryan were actually
WWE staff members along with some military personnel and fans.


> RAW RATINGS
- Monday Night RAW this week drew a total of 4,369,000 viewers, down
208,000 viewers from last week. Hour one had 4,165,000 viewers, then
followed by a big jump to 4,676,000 viewers in hour two before losing
almost all the viewers gained for 4,265,000 in hour three. (Ratings
