The first thing I noticed is that John Cena's price has once again been snipped. The favourite is now at 4/5. This is is a dip from yesterday's EVS and the 5/4 from forty-eight hours earlier.
With Cena moving in, the second-favourite selection of The Undertaker has risen to 3/1. It was 11/4 yesterday and 5/2 at the start.
Since the last visit, WWE has revealed that Angle will announce his opponent on this coming Monday's episode of Raw. With this being topical, the WWE website has written an article naming 'dream opponents' for Angle. The wrestlers that appear on this list - in order - are: John Cena, Shelton Benjamin, Samoa Joe, Chad Gable, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre.
Only Mysterio and Reigns are missing from Sky Bet's list. With that said, I suspect now that they've been named in the article the chance of getting those matches are somewhat slim.
Just like on Thursday when I realised Baron Corbin wasn't available on Sky Bet's list, his name not appearing in WWE's article is glaring when you consider he had been at odds with Angle since last year.
I'd call Corbin a 'Nightmare Opponent' for Angle's last match.
Finn Balor is another name who did not make the article's list of potential opponents. I had backed him at 12/1 when the market was first installed because I would like to see that match. I have since lowered my expectations (see yesterday's post), but I am interested to see whether there is some hope as - on Raw - Balor will team up with a mystery partner to take on Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush. It could be Braun Strowman, I guess, but I have my fingers crossed that it'll be Angle before or after he has revealed who he'd like to face at WrestleMania.
Anyway, back to Sky Bet's market - two new names have been added since yesterday's update. The new selections are Hornswoggle and the aforementioned Benjamin.
Hornswoggle is 100/1. I recall Angle did comedy angles with minis in the past, but cannot remember if he did anything with Hornswoggle back in 2007. I'm sure it might be a case of my brain blocking something out, though!
Shelton Benjamin is 16/1. He was a member of Team Angle back in the early 2000s and was brought back to Raw on Monday night to face Seth Rollins as the latter prepared for Brock Lesnar. It's understandable, with that history, to see his name requested/added.
