Now that WWE’s SummerSlam has come-and-gone, the company moves into another “slower period” before ramping back up again in January for the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view which begins the Road To WrestleMania.
The sports betting website SkyBet already has some very early betting odds for the winner of the Men’s Royal Rumble match and a surprising name is the favorite to win, then go on to WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium to challenge for either the Universal or WWE Championship. Right now, The Rock leads the pack with 2/1 odds even though he has not had a match with the company since WrestleMania 32, a very quick victory over Erick Rowan.
Other notable names included in the betting odds are Daniel Bryan (6/1), Seth Rollins (8/1), Braun Strowman (9/1), Finn Balor (12/1), John Cena (12/1) and current Universal Champion Roman Reigns (12/1).
Despite the fact that The Rock has been away from the WWE for an extended period of time, it’s been noted that there continues to be talk backstage within the company of him returning for WrestleMania 35, which has reportedly increased in the past few weeks. As has been noted, ‘The People’s Champ’ recently spoke with Cathy Kelley at the premiere of his movie Skyscraper and spoke about wanting to get back into a WWE ring, which you can check out here.
