Late Friday, WWE announced a number of entrants into the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Posting an article on WWE.com, they wrote:

Citing the rules of the traditional Battle Royal style match, we’re sure this one is going to be anything but typical. With two members of the Saturday Night Live crew now a part of the bout — Colin Jost and Michael Che — the entire contest will likely consist of the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman, chasing them around and those two trying not to get killed.
The participants announced are:
The following Superstars have announced their entry into the annual brawl:
Colin Jost & Michael Che of SNL fame
No Way Jose
There are no real surprises on this list as all names are currently roster members on either Raw or SmackDown Live. Jeff Hardy and Andrade may be considered good bets but in the end, is there any way that Strowman isn’t going to pull out the victory here?
It’s a shame that the best WWE seems to be able to do with Strowman is give him a spot in the Battle Royal and not a feature match on the company’s biggest card of the year. But, he’s either upset someone or he’s going to get this match as a major showcase. The last time WWE offered up something similar is when he won the Greatest Royal Rumble.
At that time he was given a belt and it sort of disappeared from existence. This time, he’ll have a chance to take home a huge Andre the Giant trophy.
