We are on our way down the Road to WrestleMania as the Royal Rumble 2020 event is around the corner. One of the most anticipated events on the WWE calendar, this year’s Royal Rumble show will once again bring over a Major League Baseball stadium with the show set to take place at Minute Maid Park in Houston, According to Sportskeeda‘s own Tom Colohue, the two names to win the men and Women’s Royal Rumble are Roman Reigns and Shayna Baszler.
The current betting favorites, previously these were just favorites from management, to win the Royal Rumble, I mentioned it was Shayna Baszler and Roman Reigns, they are now the betting favorites on a lot of betting sites, and a lot of betting companies are taking less and less odds of the chance for Roman and Shayna winning. It’s worth remembering, I believe the time was 2016 when Randy Orton won, the betting averages narrowed day by day to get closer and closer to Randy Orton, at that time you had Goldberg, Lesnar and The Undertaker in the Royal Rumble, so they were favorites the day before but Randy Orton was the betting favorite on the day. So it’s very telling when the betting favorites start to move.
While we like the plan of Roman Reigns vs The Fiend at WrestleMania 36, we fear that winning the Royal Rumble may derail his momentum as a babyface. Shayna Baszler’s time on the main roster is approaching, but we’re unsure whether a direct Royal Rumble win would be the way to go about pushing her right off the bat.
