Reports from theWrestling Observerearlier today state that the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal will now be taking place on the main WrestleMania 32 card. WWE’s official match preview wording has changed, but they still do list the match on the Kickoff show. It may possibly open the event or start a few minutes before the Kickoff show finishes, making fans that haven’t got the Network to quickly subscribe so not to miss any of the action
The Observer also reported that the United States Championship match between Kalisto and Ryback will begin sometime around 5.30EST. It will air exclusively on the WWE Network and certain social media platforms, very possibly Facebook.
The remaining two Kickoff matches (Total Divas vs. Team Bad & Blonde and The Usos vs. The Dudley Boyz) will be aired on the USA Network pre-show, the WWE Network and WWE social media platforms, between 6pm and 7pm EST.
With this news in mind, here is the updated card for WrestleMania 32:

Kickoff Pre-show: WWE United States Title Match

Ski’s Take – I did say in my news update yesterday that WWE officials would possibly play with the card and change matches around. Four days to go and a few tweaks already.
To be honest, I don’t mind what match is where and on what show (Kickoff show and PPV), as long as ALL the announced matches get a chance to shine on the biggest night of the year. No one gets booted off the card because of a musical performance or such like.
