The Grandest Stage of The Mall is a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced every summer by the Professional Grappling Association (PGA). Each event takes place in a different well-known shopping mall. The event's main feature is the Mall For It All, PGA's staggered-entry, over-the-top rope battle royal. Both the match and show were formerly known as the Grande Royale, but were changed in 2009.
Traditionally, the Grande Royale match was always the main event of the Grande Royale pay-per-view, with the winner being awarded a title match for the PGA World Heavyweight Wrestling Championship.
In 2009, Balk Ruby made the announcement on an episode of PGA Primetime Wednesday! that the upcoming pay-per-view would be named The Grandest Stage of The Mall, at the suggestion of his granddaughter. Due to complications in the World Heavyweight Championship scene, the pay-per-view would feature that year's Grande Royale event, thematically named the Mall For It All; the winner would go on to face current number-one contender Helm Konrad for the vacated championship. When it was realized that no championship match would take place at the event, Konrad was also entered in the Mall For It All, with the stipulation that his victory would immediately award him the title. The match, however, was won by King Falcon, who went on to face Konrad at Remain Alive.
In 2010, for the first time ever, the battle royal was not the main event of the show, instead pushed down to the middle of the card. In kayfabe, this was intended to surprise and throw off any plans intended by Stevens N. Stevens and the Zen Dungeon; in the main event, Dungeon member Lester Balaam Jackson defended the World Championship against Slyclops IX. The Mall For It All has not since returned to the main event position of the show. This was also the first year the Mall For It All featured 30 competitors instead of the traditional 20.
In 2011, the first-ever XX-Division Mall For It All took place. This all-female, 15-competitor battle royal determined the number-one contender to the XX-Division Championship at Cargado Completamente.
