For less than three days last week, the Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal was listed as part of the WrestleMania 34 lineup. The match, which will feature wrestlers from Raw, SmackDown, and NXT as WWE attempts to get as much of the women's division on the card as possible, will still be happening. But it will instead be called the "WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal" after WWE had to change the name due to fan and sponsor backlash.
