WWE has announced the first-ever Slim Jim Battle Royal for this SummerSlam weekend. The rules of the match are simple. A pre-determined number of Superstars will enter the match at the same time. The only way to eliminate a Superstar is to toss him from above the top rope and ensure his both feet touch the floor at ringside.
The eliminations will continue until only one man remains standing inside the ring. That Superstar will be announced the winner of the Slim Jim Battle Royal at WWE SummerSlam 2023.
It looks like WWE has planned this match at the last minute because they cracked a sponsorship deal with Slim Jim. In the past, WWE had some special matches for the sponsors as well, with one of the latest being a Mountain Dew Pitch Black match between LA Knight and Bray Wyatt.
Interestingly, LA Knight is also a part of the upcoming sponsor-related WWE match. Here is the full list of participants announced so far for this match at SummerSlam.

At least Superstars should be a part of this battle royal match at SummerSlam. It should not be a surprise if the likes of Dominik Mysterio, Erik, Ivar, Ashante Adonis, Top Dolla, Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde are added to the match in the coming days.

Knight recently lost the Money in the Bank ladder match and the US Championship Invitational. A win at SummerSlam in Detroit can help him gain a ton of momentum on SmackDown.
