As regular visitors are sure to know - I now have four names on my current shortlist and my opinion of Jericho winning January's battle royal had began to waver when it appeared as though he and Kevin Owens' split was happening in time to set up a meeting between the two in a singles match at the Royal Rumble.
At the close of last night's Roadblock event, Jericho interfered by attacking Kevin Owens. It resulted in Roman Reigns being disqualified before Jericho revealed that the Codebreaker to Owens was a plot to get his friend the win.
There are five weeks of television to go before the Royal Rumble, but - as of right now - I am confident that Owens versus Jericho is not going to be a fixture on the January 29th card.
I am still somewhat concerned that the Universal Championship will land in the hands of Roman Reigns, but doubt is just part of betting on these things.
If any of you are interested in wagering on Chris Jericho, the market price is 5/1, You can find him at these odds at Betfair, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. I wasn't the first to jump onto a Jericho Rumble win. I caught him when he was 33/1. There are others out there that bet on him in the autumn when he was 50s.
For what it's worth, the other names on my shortlist, in order, are:
Braun Strowman (this is especially if Roman Reigns becomes Universal Champion before the Rumble match)
I can't see any more possible victors entering the fray, but never say never.
