Speculation has been rife over the past few months when it comes to the fact that The Rock is looking to make his return to the wrestling ring, which is why there have been a number of hints about a feud between The Rock and Elias, which haven’t yet been explained.
It is unknown as to when The People’s Champion will be making his return to WWE, but one huge hint could be the fact that SkyBet is now offering 2/1 odds that The Rock will win the 2019 Royal Rumble and go on to headline WrestleMania one more time.
This could be the showdown that WWE has hinted between The Rock and Roman Reigns since The Big Dog is currently the Universal Champion and could easily hold the title until WrestleMania 35.
The one positive point here could be that The Rock definitely won’t be facing John Cena once again since that already main evented WrestleMania 28 and 29 so it wouldn’t make any sense to rehash that feud after five years.
The rest of the list of potential Royal Rumble winners sees Daniel Bryan as the second favorite since the WWE Universe has called for Bryan to win a Rumble a number of times and 2019 could be the perfect stage for it following his return to the ring back in March.
He is closely followed by Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, John Cena and interestingly, Roman Reigns whilst the biggest shock inside the top ten is Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas.
The Royal Rumble is the pay-per-view that begins the Road to WrestleMania and if this list of favorites is anything to go by, WWE could have some interesting plans for their biggest event of the year.
