To promote the brand that he is currently in charge of, Triple H noted that all but one match at Wrestlemania featured someone that trained at NXT. Antonio Cesaro, Luke Harper, Seth Rollins, Paige, Rusev, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns and several WWE stars in the Andre the Giant battle royal all went through the developmental program. The only match that did not feature someone from there was the one between HHH and Sting.

It was long rumored that WWE was going to use NXT performers at Wrestlemania before the front office decided to load up the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal with known wrestlers on the main roster. Well, it has now been revealed that one of the spots will be given to a developmental wrestler. During Axxess, a tournament will be held with Adrian Neville, Finn Balor, Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze to determine the spot filler.

Since the brand has been growing in popularity as of late, a lot of WWE fans were excited at the prospect of some of the developmental wrestlers being used at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, though, that might not be happening after all. Reports have surfaced that management is looking to trim the Andre the Giant battle royal down to only 20 participants. That makes it harder for the likes of Finn Balor, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens to get spots.
