As seen on Sky Bet, the early betting odds for Becky Lynch vs Asuka at WWE Royal Rumble have been released.

These two women have been on a collision course for quite some time now with Becky Lynch continuing to lead the women’s division as The Man and Asuka giving her persona a much needed injection of life over the course of the last few months.

Lynch always seems to come up a little bit short when she goes toe to toe with Asuka, but at the Rumble, she’ll be hoping to change all of that.

In terms of the betting odds, Becky Lynch is the favourite to take one step closer towards defending her RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania with odds of 4/9. Asuka, on the other hand, is the somewhat distant 13/8 underdog.

We wouldn’t be stunned to see Ronda Rousey appear in some form, whether it be to cost Lynch the belt or, more likely, challenge her immediately after she beats Asuka.

If it’s going to be the latter then we’d imagine she will have to win the women’s Royal Rumble match earlier on in the night, but we’re getting too far ahead of ourselves.

For now, all people want is to see a great match between Becky and Asuka which we’re pretty certain we’re going to get. Will it reignite the flame that was Lynch’s rise to prominence in time for Mania? Only time will tell, but if anyone can bring that out of her, it’s Asuka.
