The Royal Rumble match is known as the kick-off to the Road to Wrestlemania. This time around in January, every year, the Rumble match sets the tone for the biggest event of the year by crowning the main-eventer of the show. 30 superstars compete in an over-the-top-rope challenge in the traditional match.
The last man standing inside the ring gets declared as the winner and receives a ticket, straight to Wrestlemania. He gets the shot to challenge any of the prime champions present on either Raw or Smackdown to set up the main event of the showcase of immortals. The win often makes the career of the certain superstars who can win the championship at the grandest stage of them all.
With the next edition of Royal Rumble approaching towards us, rumours are running all around trying to predict who the potential winners are going to be for the prestigious battle royal. Although it is a few days away, Paddy Power has released a list of early favourites to win the match which is as follows. It is based on the ongoing betting odds against the concerned superstars,
Roman Reigns (4/6)
John Cena (2/1)
Brock Lesnar (4/1)
Seth Rollins (4/1)
Finn Balor (8/1)
Samoa Joe (10/1)
Braun Strowman (10/1)
As you can see, Roman Reigns is the most favourite one to win this year’s Royal Rumble match. The reason behind this is that it is pre-determined that the main event of Wrestlemania 34 will consist him and Brock Lesnar in a match for the Universal Championship.
This bout was sketched by the creative team even before Wrestlemania 33 culminated. The storyline might get started with an interesting note where two of the only superstars to defeat The Undertaker in his yard of ‘Mania will get to face each other to reign supreme on each other.
Plus, Royal Rumble will be hosted at the same venue of Wells Fargo Center where Roman Reigns won his first Rumble match back in 2015. Even at that year, he faced Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. With that being said, we might be heading towards a rematch between these two.
