With so much going in with the Royal Rumble betting markets, I'm not going to do what I usually do ahead of a  PPV and have a post where I point out the betting favourites.

    1. It means the bookmaker has lowered the odds because customers have bet on it.

  4. A women's rumble main event makes sense of Roman wins the Rumble. They can try and let the fans leave home happy after whatever heat Roman gets

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah but doesn't the main event slot make you wonder about something big or shocking?

    1. Could just be WWE looking to 'make history'.

    2. I have bets on Rousey, so it's win-win for me. I just don't think we're getting her.

      Delete
    3. I already have Becky, Nia, and Sasha all at great odds. Might as well add Rousey at +550...maybe it's last because she had to fly back.

      Delete
  6. I guess the women main eventing is gonna see money fly in on Rousey

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As soon as it came out it was Main Eventing Reddit went off saying Rousey was winning so its probably a good guess the punters/money goes the same way.

      F*** it I'm still going Becky.

  7. Let's go Finn or Dolph!! I'm 2-0 so far, hoping to stay hot!

    1. You too! I just said to my fiancé "please don't let Finn be 1 or 2"...ugh!

  8. I've just remembered a prop we didn't see this year.

    New Day members to draw numbers 1,2 and 3.

  9. Is it possible he could get eliminated and come back later as the Demon?? I've been thinking about that this weekend...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just a (very major!) heads up, but Ronda skyrocketed to the top of the list for the Women's Rumble and is now +125. Asuka is +150.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Time to hit the Bar some more

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm calling Roman at #27 to troll us

    ReplyDelete
  13. Finn wasn't supposed to eliminate Dolph!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hilarious that the favourite for the rumble didn't even enter and rightly so. She shouldn't have won, didn't need to. Her match will be made clear soon.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So it turns out Shinsuke was staring us in the face for weeks.

    I can't believe they brought Ziggler back as number 30 just to be thrown out within minutes..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nor can I.
      I won a bet on Ziggler being number 30, but that was a bittersweet victory!

  16. Lucky results for me. Backed Nakamura 3 times starting Feb 2017, then in a pleasant surprise my womens roughies (Cross and Royce) both got refunded for being non-starters.
    Thanks for keeping us updated the past few months!

    1. Thanks, Damo.

      I remember you had Nakamura from the start. Check out the comments of This Post from a year ago today and you were saying Nakamura then!

    2. You definitely have a sharper memory than me!

      Already keen to see 2019 odds....

    3. I’m going to keep repeating this until it happens...

      ‘If John Cena hasn’t won his seventeenth world title by then...’
