WWE’s Royal Rumble event is already getting buzz as we close out 2020, and that event will highlight January for the company. They have plenty of options about how they want to start the road to WrestleMania, and the early betting odds are very interesting.
Bovada is currently listing Rhea Ripley as the most likely winner for the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble match. She is currently sitting at +700 odds. This is an interesting choice, but it doesn’t require her main roster call-up to happen beforehand.
NXT Superstars have been featured in the Royal Rumble match in previous years. Some of the biggest surprises of the night, not counting Edge’s return, during the 2020 Royal Rumble came after the crowd saw an NXT Superstar.
Ronda Rousey is also a very close second with +750 odds. Shayna Baszler is sitting in the #3 spot with +800 odds. Alexa Bliss, and Sasha Banks are both at +1,000 odds.
These are very early betting odds, because the company hasn’t even started building toward the event yet. We’ll just have to see how things pan out in the month to come.
