WWE’s upcoming and first pay-per-view of 2019, Royal Rumble takes place on January 27 from Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona, US and will officially ring in the Road To WrestleMania.
Meanwhile, a new betting favorite to win the epic 30-Man Royal Rumble match has emerged, per Sky Bet.
The brand new favorite is perhaps the most deserving (and convincing) guy and he’s none other than “The Kingslayer” Seth Rollins.
Rollins (13/8) is the most favored Superstar to win the historic 30-Man Elimination Match in Phoenix while Drew McIntyre sits pretty close with odds of 5/2. The Miz (9/2) is the third favorite with AJ Styles (9/1) and The Rock (9/1) sealing the top five.
Dean Ambrose (25/1) is the 10th favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match. However, it doesn’t quite matter since The Lunatic Fringe is supposed to defend his Intercontinental Championship on January 27 and most likely won’t be part of the 30-Man showdown.
It would be interesting to see what goes down at the event since McIntyre was earlier the favorite to punch his WrestleMania 35 main event ticket on January 27 but that no longer seems to be the case.
Having dropped the big white belt to his former Shield-brother at TLC, The Kingslayer is currently being pitched to win the Rumble match in Chase Field and feud with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35.
The Beast will defend his Universal Title against Braun Strowman at Royal Rumble in what happens to be a championship rematch for The Monster. According to recent betting odds, both men have equal chances of winning, thus making the rumored Rollins storyline even more interesting.
Rollins recently replaced Roman Reigns on the official RAW graphic occupying the front-center spot to give off a clear signal that WWE is finally ready to capitalize on his super stardom and cement him as the man to dethrone Lesnar at WrestleMania 35.
