As seen on Sky Bet, the betting odds for who will be the Iron Man in the men’s Royal Rumble match in Phoenix, Arizona this weekend have been released.

The Royal Rumble is right around the corner, and as you can imagine, the WWE Universe is pretty excited about it. The Rumble matches themselves always tend to throw up some of the most exciting moments of the year, and one of the most intriguing storylines throughout is always who the Iron Man will be.

The Iron Man, by definition, is the superstar that lasts the longest in the match – usually raising their stock pretty high. Finn Balor achieved that goal last year, remaining in the match for 57 minutes and 38 seconds.

In terms of the betting odds, the favourite is actually Mustafa Ali at 3/1. Seth Rollins and Elias both come in at second and third with odds of 5/1, with the top five being completed by Andrade (6/1) and Finn Balor (8/1).

Ali has had a fantastic run on the main roster since being called up from 205 Live late last year, establishing himself as a real player on SmackDown Live. Rollins is the favourite to win the whole match so it’s no surprise to see him in the top five, but when it comes to Elias, that seems like a pretty left field selection.

Andrade and Balor are both solid picks, but they’re working under the assumption that the Universal Championship match between Finn and Brock Lesnar will go on before the men’s Royal Rumble match.
