The Royal Rumble bout for this year is scheduled for January 28 and is said to have some major shocks in store. Cody Rhodes, who will be competing in the men’s Royal Rumble event at the PLE despite missing months due to a torn pectoral muscle, is currently the favorite to win.
At WrestleMania 38, The American Nightmare made his WWE debut after a six-year absence. He defeated Seth Rollins in their matchup. Following that, the two men faced off twice more, with Rhodes winning both times. Many people think Rhodes’ ascent to the top has started now that the firm is airing vignettes for his comeback.
Dave Meltzer on the Royal Rumble winner
Cody Rhodes is currently the betting favorite to win the Royal Rumble, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Sami Zayn is the second favorite to win the bout, with The Rock coming in third, according to him.
“Rhodes was installed at a -160 favorite, with the next ten based on gambling odds being Sami Zayn, The Rock (which would seem unlikely at this point but it would also be something kept secretive if it was), Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, Matt Riddle, Gunther, A.J. Styles (who is injured right now), Karrion Kross and Austin Theory,” Meltzer said.
The favorite to win Women’s Royal Rumble
According to the article, Rhea Ripley is currently the favorite to prevail in the Women’s Royal Rumble bout. Since joining The Judgment Day, the former RAW Women’s Champion has been on a tear and has established herself as a major player on RAW. If she were to triumph in the Rumble and go up against Bianca Belair, fans would have a brand-new feud to look forward to.
”The top ten women favorites are Rhea Ripley at -100, followed by Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Raquel Rodriguez, Asuka, Liv Morgan, Bianca Belair and believe it or not, Sasha Banks, who I’d see as very unlikely.”
According to Cody Rhodes, his feud with Seth Rollins is done, and when he returns, he intends to win the WWE Championship. The American Nightmare’s position as the top babyface in WWE might be cemented by a significant matchup with Roman Reigns.
