As seen on Sky Bet, there is a brand new betting favourite when it comes to who will be the WWE 2K20 cover star.

While many members of the WWE Universe may not care one bit about who is going to be on the cover of a video game, it’s actually a pretty big deal – especially in the eyes of the superstars. Aside from the fact that many of them grew up on video games, it’s a sign that the company is really getting behind them.

Late last year it seemed like Ronda Rousey was certainty to appear on the cover, but it appears as if the tide is turning.

In terms of the betting odds, The Man Becky Lynch is now the 6/5 favourite to bless the cover of WWE 2K20. Ronda Rousey is now a somewhat distant second at 5/1, with Braun Strowman and The Undertaker being tied for third at 12/1.

This is a further indication of the direction WWE seems to be going in, in the wake of Lynch hitting the mainstream over the course of the last few months. She really seems to have caught fire in a big way, with many tipping her for a major match against – ironically – Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania.

Rousey, on the other hand, has been heavily linked with a departure from WWE following WrestleMania 35 where it appears as if she’ll be dropping the Raw Women’s Championship.

If she does take a break, then being on the front of 2K20 would almost certainly be ruled out altogether.
