WWE announced that it's moving the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to the kickoff position for Wrestlemania 31. Before the creation of the Network, I would have been more bothered by this decision. But now since so many people will be watching Wrestlemania on Channel 999, I'm not as irked.
I am curious, because WWE makes the distinction, does it affect the entrants' payday? I know that's an issue that CM Punk had brought up after the Network was first announced. I also can't help but to wonder does that move affect the "streaks" of those within the company. WWE mentioned the other day that Kane, Randy Orton and John Cena are all in second place for the most consecutive appearances on Wrestlemania. Kane should have more, but he worked a pre-show (or kick off) on Sunday Night Heat before Wrestlemania 19.
