Major name favored to win 2019 Royal Rumble

The Rock

While whether or not he returns to WWE is yet to be seen, The Rock has now become the current favorite to win the Royal Rumble next year, according to betting odds.

SkyBet has released early betting odds for one of WWE’s Big Four PPVs next year and it reveals that the Rock is currently a 2/1 favorite to win the bout.

The Great One is followed by Daniel Bryan (6/1), Seth Rollins (8/1) and Braun Strowman (9/1) as #2, #3 and #4. The Universal Champion Roman Reigns, John Cena and Finn Balor all have 12/1 odds.

It’s worth mentioning here that the talk of The Rock returning to WWE has increased in recent times and this is the likely reason behind this shift in the odds.

These talks started after the former World Champion said that he can’t wait to get back into a WWE ring during a recent interview and now it would be interesting to see if he actually returns to the company sometime in near future.

    The title should read “Major Name set to appear at the Rumble”. I doubt he’ll “win” it. He’s got bigger fish to fry and so does the WWE. Though Reigns does need to beat the Rock as a match, just to do it as a “thing”.

    Rock will get booed out of the building if they have Rock win the Rumble and they will absolutely shat all over the match because you can see the ending coming a mile away. If Rock wants to give back to the business, he should have put over Punk at Mania. If Rock wants to give back to the business, he should put over Rollins. Putting over Reigns is a waste of time and will fail miserably. WWE CAN NOT get Roman over as THE guy. We see right through it and it doesn’t matter what WWE does, we will reject it.

    So if there is any truth to this then clearly Vince wants to use the Rock to put Roman over at WM. So technically we all ready know the results of the RR match and the WM main event.

    I don’t see The Miz anywhere as a favorite to win the Rumble. I believe he will be my pick to win it.

    Clearly WWE doesn’t remember what happened when they had Batista win the Rumble.

    First time in a long time the Rock will get booed.
