As seen on Sky Bet, the betting favourite to win the 2019 women’s Royal Rumble match has been revealed.
Earlier this year we saw the introduction of a 30-woman Royal Rumble match for the first time in history, and it was met with a pretty great response from the WWE Universe. Now it appears as if it’ll be a regular fixture at the January pay per view moving forward, and that can only be a good thing.
There are some high level superstars who could easily be in the running to win the second annual women’s Royal Rumble match, but there’s only one who is the clear betting favourite.
That ‘one’ is multi-time champion Charlotte Flair who is the clear favourite with odds of 2/5. Becky Lynch, who will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Flair and Asuka at WWE TLC, is the second favourite at 5/4 with Alexa Bliss rounding out the top three with much wider odds of 14/1.
It’s interesting to note that the WWE TLC title match could have some massive repercussions for the Royal Rumble, because according to these odds, either Lynch or Flair will have a reason to be happy even if they don’t walk out of San Jose with the strap.
It’s great that we can even start talking about all of this, because it’s a sign that the Rumble – and therefore WrestleMania season – is right around the corner. Sure, there are things that could be improved in regards to the product, but WWE always seem to step up their game at this time of the year.
