Regarding WWE making changes to the WrestleMania Kickoff Pre-show this past weekend, they talked about moving more than the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal from the main card. Before they decided on moving the battle royal, they were talking about moving 1-2 matches to the pre-show.
One of the matches discussed to be moved was The Bella Twins vs. AJ Lee and Paige. However, there was a feeling that they would face big heat from the fans if they moved the Divas match, due to the ongoing "#GiveDivasAChance" social media campaign.
One of the reasons they put two matches on the pre-show, besides timing, is so the fans who were watching for 2 hours would have more than one match to keep them occupied. Also, the idea was to free up more time for the main show so they wouldn't be so rushed but they still ended up rushing things.
