Thousands of people will pack Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ this weekend to the WWE Royal Rumble.
The Royal Rumble represents the largest precursor to WrestleMania and has been a staple over the WWE schedule since 1988 when”Hacksaw” Jim Duggan became the primary winner. In 1993 that the WWE announced a rule change that gave the winner of the Rumble a title shot at WrestleMania.
Let us take a look at the card for this Sunday’s show and see if we can not choose a few winners and also earn some money.
Smackdown Women’s Title: Asuka (c) v Becky Lynch
Asuka (winner ) chances: -185
Becky Lynch chances: +145
Handicapping WWE events can be tricky, since the company’s creative department can wake up on Sunday morning and totally rewrite the script.
More to the point, Vince McMahon could change his mind from the gorilla position just before the wrestlers scamper through the drape. One constant is famous, Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch is penciled in as the closing game at Wrestlemania.
Another factor in the combination is the movement of the Smackdown new to Fox that October. The largest draw in WWE is Ronda Rousey, who now resides on the RAW brand. It just makes sense that Rousey is competing against Lynch for the Women’s title on the grim brand.
Pick:Becky Lynch +145, choose until -120
