Jey Uso is this year’s Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner.
Uso won the battle royal on SmackDown prior to WrestleMania, which starts tomorrow. Uso and Shinsuke Nakamura were the last two remaining in the ring. Nakamura hit the kinshasa, but Uso fought back and eventually eliminated Nakamura to win the battle royal for the first time. Announcers repeatedly referred to Uso under a new nickname, Main Event Jey Uso.
The battle royal took place on a special edition of SmackDown called WrestleMania SmackDown. The battle royal in previous years has been held during the pre-show prior to WrestleMania. In another advertised match, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler successfully defended the SmackDown Tag Team titles against Rey and Dominik Mysterio, Otis & Chad Gable, and The Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins).
Previous Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winners include Cesaro, Big Show, Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Matt Hardy, and Braun Strowman.
