Recently the betting odds for the upcoming Royal Rumble match took a huge shift in favor of SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, which not only left people surprised but confused as well due to Bryan’s medical condition.
During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez discussed the huge shift in the betting odds and revealed the possible reason behind it.
Alvarez indicated that somebody within WWE pitched the idea of the SmackDown GM winning the Royal Rumble. The word got out among other individuals who work for the company and they decided to place a bet on Daniel, causing the betting odds to change.
Although it’s worth mentioning here that despite the pitch, Bryan has still not been cleared to return to the ring and it’s not likely that he’ll wrestle at Royal Rumble, let alone winning it.
