John Cena No Longer Favored to Win the Royal Rumble, But Who is the New Favorite?

The following odds have been sourced by Paddy Power, which accepts players from Ireland, The UK and other countries.

A New Front Runner Emerges in the Royal Rumble

After nearly a year of Roman Reigns being long favored to win the 2018 WWE Royal Rumble in Philadelphia, it would be John Cena who would snatch the #1 most favorable odds away from “The Big Dog”, but this didn’t last very long. After both Roman and Shinsuke Nakamura were tied in a dead heat for the top positioning in the Rumble, Nakamura is now the most likely to win according to these odds at +140. This gives “The King of Strong Style” a probability of over 40% to win this match.

If this ends up holding true, it will presumably lead to the epic Wrestlemania match many ardent fans are dying to see with WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Shinsuke. Both of these very talented performers were active at the same time in New Japan Pro Wrestling before coming to the WWE system and teased a major encounter in their Money in the Bank Ladder match. Time stood still as these two lock gazes in this match and let the audience soak in the moment and omen of a future meeting on a grander stage.

As for John Cena, his odds have been knocked down to +400, however Dolph Ziggler has been upgraded to have identical odds to Cena. This means both have the same probability of winning the match. Many were lest wondering what’s next for Ziggler since he vacated the United States Championship and a Rumble win might be the answer. It will be especially interesting to see how Ziggler’s odds move from now until the Rumble on January 28.

Here is the most current odds available for nearly 100 possible Rumble winners.

royal rumble predictions

Universal Championship – Who is Favored in the Triple Threat Match?

Who Will Prevail at the Royal Rumble?

When it was revealed that Brock Lesnar would be defending the Universal Championship against two opponents, Braun Strowman and Kane, ardent consumers of WWE were initially puzzled about Kane being involved in the match. Shortly thereafter the consensus was that Kane was added to the match so that neither Strowman nor Lesnar would have to take a pinfall or submission loss. For those unaware, a Triple Threat match creates a situation where a championship can be lost without actually being beaten outright.

Lesnar is currently favored to retain at the Royal Rumble, with odds of -500. This means it would take a $500 bet to win only $100. This makes both Braun Strowman at +300 and Kane at +1000 the underdogs. A $100 bet on Kane upon success would yield $1000.

Lesnar and Strowman met one on one for Brock’s championship in September of last year at the PPV No Mercy and saw the champion defeat the challenger with his finisher, the F5. This was heavily criticized, as the current landscape of important WWE matches usually requires MULTIPLE finishers to defeat an opponent. To be fair, Braun did dominate Lesnar in both the match itself and the scuffles and brawls leading up to it.

With the idea that Kane is only involved to take the pin or be submitted, it would be very interesting to see a prop bet on which competitor will be the one to do so, however no such wager yet exists. Wagering on this particular match is only available to bettors in the UK and Ireland right now, but will be available to gamblers worldwide sometime before the Royal Rumble event.

Politics and Wrestling: It’s Still Real To Me

If one lights a fire for others, one will brighten one’s own way. -Nichiren

2017 was a hell of a year for me and for Bet Wrestling. Just over a year ago I began writing for this website after a pretty long hiatus from the wrestling world. As many before me, and many since, I had become disillusioned with the world around me, and needed a break to see what I was missing in “real life”. During my time spent in pro wrestling, I missed weddings, birthdays, holiday gatherings, and all kinds of other events, but such is the life of an entertainer and/or athlete, as if you do not take that call when it comes, you may never get another chance.

Last year when I began writing for this site, I was in the midst of a protest, actually living on the street in front of Los Angeles City Hall in a tent with at least a dozen others, and a few dozen part-timers for 2 months. This was not even my first time staying at city hall in protest, I actually have spent more than 100 days in total at city hall in protest encampments. The last time was in protest against the lack of prosecution of killer police officers in Los Angeles. To be honest I know this is extremely hard for most people across the country to understand, as they could never imagine someone getting blasted for nothing, but here in Los Angeles its a regular occurrence, and for black and brown people its a fear they must face daily, even if it just rests in the back of their minds.

In the past few years, I have met countless grieving parents and family members who often never find out what really happened to their loved ones. The lack of accountability and the racist social structure often fails these families blaming the victims of police violence, instead of critically looking at the actions of the police who killed these persons. In order for this genocide to end, the public needs to be educated about what has really led to this, what the history of policing is, and how in 2018 we still live in a nation where black and brown people are not free, as they face imprisonment or death at a 60% higher rate than their white counterparts. As someone who has a mixed heritage, that was erased by whiteness, I can use my perceived privilege to inform others, and I do this in a variety of mediums.

I was told recently that there was no place for this in wrestling, but I disagree. Wrestling is and always has been a social commentary. Pro wrestling has a history rich in racism, sexism, and right-wing political leanings that carry on today. Linda McMahon is the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, a woman who’s mega-corporation WWE has bought up almost every major competition they have seen over the past 20 years or bought out their video catalog after the company died off. Kane is running for Mayor of his home County in TN. The President of the United States is a WWE Hall of Famer, yet many people want to pretend that wrestling isn’t political. Well here is a huge news flash, it is!

About two months ago the radio network I have been working with finally came to fruition and announced that we would be doing our beta launch. The next day my comrade Brandon said he wished there was a show about the history of wrestling in California, and I said: “let’s do one!”. That’s how our radio show Hollywood Jobbers was born. From the very first episode on, we had some sort of politically motivated commentary, as I met my co-host through the local protest scene. We have similar politics, and we both have a love for wrestling. Most of my politically active friends either don’t watch it at all or only watch the big shows, not the territory or independent level wrestling. Our network we are hosted on is a social justice radio network called RadioJustice.org and we are currently the only “sports” show on the network. Our hopes for the show are to educate and entertain, giving our own commentary on the past and present of pro wrestling from our point of view. So far its gotten great feedback from my friends in wrestling, as well as from those who listen to our network and are just discovering it, whether its non-fans or folks who haven’t watched since childhood.

We quickly realized that our show would have a bigger audience if we switched nights, as east coast folks reached out, and asked us to change nights so we were not on the radio against RAW on tv in their time zone. We have recorded 8 shows in the past two month period and most of the feedback has been positive, except for one hater who based his decision on one show. Our shows have included interviews when we could get them, as due to our original studio backing out after the project began, we have had to struggle to find quiet places to record, and times that work for us and our guests to get them on the phone, rather than in studio as we had originally planned. Despite not having a studio we have consistently produced content for the network as we promised. In 2018 we plan to cover more topics, continue to bring you fun interviews and hopefully, our networks goal of building our very own studio will come to fruition.

Those are just two of the many projects I have been working on. Since Digital Media Management is my main gig, I work with over 50 companies, organizations, and people to help maintain, or run their pages, and to create or build content for them. It’s such a wide range of products, services, causes, and people, its a ton of work to keep it all together, hence why for many of them I am a team member, or mainly a consultant. I get pages started and teach their owners how to run them. Then they decide whether they want to operate them or pay me to do it. I am hell bent on organic reach and think most paid advertising has proven to be useless for the majority of those interested in online marketing. I instead implement and teach ways to target the direct audience people want to hit, which is the most important part of online marketing, knowing your audience.

Some things I may associate with, may not be perfectly politically correct, yet even then I spent much effort to use the platforms I can to socially education and motivate others. Many have tried to shut me up over time, including the government, but I am still here, and still getting published, and most importantly still watching my numbers and hits grow.  In one year my content on this site alone has gathered over 150,000 hits, and this site has seen over a quarter of a million unique visitors this year, and almost a million visits! That doesn’t account for the other sites I write, or create content for or manage, this is just one place, where I can spew out my thoughts in an editorial commentary and not worry about censorship even when the point I make may not be agreed with.

And yes, that is your right to disagree with me, it’s your right not to listen to me, or read my ramblings. If you don’t like what I have to say, that’s OK, as not everything is for everyone. When I create media on my terms, it is on my terms, love it or hate it. And before you say “no one wants to hear what you have to say” maybe you should make sure you aren’t saying that to a person who’s actually getting more hits on their hobby then you do on your passion site… just saying.

2018 is gearing up to be an awesome year, and I would like to thank all those who have supported my return to wrestling through writing and media. It’s been awesome to see how many folks are truly supportive of what I do. And thanks to the Owner of BetWrestling for standing behind my work, and allowing me to express freely what I feel needs to be said, even when it’s an unpopular opinion. Thanks to all those who have uplifted my voice, or stood behind me, it means a lot to have your support.
