Jey Uso has been crowned the winner of the 2021 Andre The Memorial Battle Royal.

‘Main Event’ Jey Uso claimed victory after dispatching Shinsuke Nakamura over the top rope.

The early part of the match saw Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin working together to eliminate Tozawa and Tucker. However, their plan to systematically work their way through each of their rivals quickly came unstuck. As all of the remaining Superstars turned on Alexander and Benjamin, leading to their eliminations.

T-Bar and Mace formerly of RETRIBUTION then set about working together in much the same way, eliminating Carillo in eye-catching style. Although once again, the paring failed to gain much momentum as they were quickly eliminated.

There was an extremely brief Lucha House Party reunion involving Kalisto, but all three of the participants soon fell by the wayside. Following impressive eliminations by Corbin and Ricochet the field continued to be whittled down, before Jey Uso eliminated the high-flyer from RAW. This left Corbin, Nakamura and Uso to fight to the finish.

Corbin was dispatched fairly quickly by Nakamura who then hit the Kinshasa on Uso. However, just as he was throwing Uso over the top rope, the the seemingly beaten man reversed the attempt, flipping Nakamura over his head to the floor, to claim the win.

The Andre The Memorial Battle Royal has been a WrestleMaina staple since 2014. The match has previously been won by the likes of Cesaro, Braun Strowman and Baron Corbin.
