Surprising Odds For Dwayne Johnson WWE Royal Rumble Win

The Rock Dwayne Johnson

The latest WWE Royal Rumble betting odds have indicated how likely an incredible win at the event for Dwayne Johnson might be.

Now 2023 is here the Royal Rumble is on the horizon with the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas playing host to the event for the third time in its history.

The January spectacular is well-established as the first step on the road to WrestleMania with the winners of the Rumble matches guaranteed a title match on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

This year WrestleMania 39 will emanate from Los Angeles, California as the event goes Hollywood once again. Long rumoured for the event is a showdown between The Rock and Roman Reigns. Although nothing has been confirmed as to Dwayne Johnson’s status for the event, the latest betting odds have indicated that his route to Reigns could well run through the Royal Rumble.

Cody Rhodes – who has been out with an injury since June – is the current favourite to win the men’s Rumble match at 11/10 on SkyBet. Interestingly, the second favourite to pick up the win is Sami Zayn (2/1) who could set up a match with his Bloodline mentor Roman Reigns. In that case, many might expect Zayn to follow in John Cena’s footsteps and forego his WrestleMania match to claim his title match at February’s premium live event since it will take place in his hometown of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The third favourite is Dwayne Johnson who weighs in at 11/4 to pick up the second Royal Rumble win of his career after he won the event in 2000. Bobby Lashley is next on the list at 8/1 with Seth Rollins following on the list at 12/1.

For those that like longer odds current AEW World Champion MJF as well as John Cena are among a host of names at 50/1 to pick up the victory while WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin is given the price of 80/1.

The clear favourite to win the women’s Rumble match is currently Rhea Ripley at 5/4 with Becky Lynch second on that list at 15/8.
