As seen on Sky Bet, the updated betting odds for the 2019 men’s Royal Rumble match have been released.
Despite the fact that SummerSlam has only just come to an end, that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to the future – and by future, we mean the Road to WrestleMania 35. The showcase of the immortals is the event that everyone looks forward to all year round, and we can’t exactly blame them for that, especially given the overwhelming popularity of the Rumble match.
As we look ahead to the 2019 edition, some fans will be surprised to learn that the current favorite to book a ticket to the main event of WrestleMania is The Rock. The Great One currently has odds of 2/1 which makes him the clear favorite, and behind him, Daniel Bryan is the second favorite at 6/1. The rest of the top ten includes Seth Rollins (8/1), Braun Strowman (9/1), Finn Balor (12/1), John Cena (12/1), Roman Reigns (12/1), Bobby Lashley (20/1), AJ Styles (25/1) and Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas (25/1).
The Rock has often said that he’d be happy if his last ‘major’ match, at WrestleMania 29 against John Cena, was his last. With that being said his last official bout against Rowan at WrestleMania 32 left a bad taste in some people’s mouths, and the Hollywood star will be fully aware of that.
The most likely main event match for Rock if he does win the Rumble would be a showdown against his cousin Roman Reigns. The Big Dog finally captured the Universal Championship last night at the biggest party of the summer, defeating Brock Lesnar.
