Brock Lesnar Betting Favorite To Win Royal Rumble

In the wake of his path of destruction at the end of Raw, Brock Lesnar has emerged as the current odds-on favorite to win the 2016 Royal Rumble, where the winner will become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Current champion Roman Reigns has the second-best odds, followed by the semi-retired Triple H, the currently injured Daniel Bryan, and the almost certain to not be in attendance Rock, as well as current Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose. Beyond that, the odds get significantly long. Not exactly a great statement about WWE’s current main even roster, is it?

Also of note are listings for (allegedly) recently signed independent wrestler AJ Styles, NXT Champion Finn Balor, and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.

At this time, 19 Superstars have been officially entered into the Royal Rumble, with one more episode of Raw before the Pay Per View. It is expected that, as usual, there will be several surprise entrants that are not announced ahead of time.
