Booking odds suggest top RAW star will dethrone Brock Lesnar for the Universal title


Just as WWE fans thought the Brock Lesnar chapter as the Universal Champion was over, the sad news surrounding Roman Reigns meant the WWE was forced to drastically change their plans.

With fans assuming that Braun Strowman would be the one to dethrone The Beast, Lesnar managed to regain Monday Night RAW's biggest prize and now the two are set to do battle again at the Royal Rumble event later this month.


The bookies were at it this week with the odds revealing who the favourites are to win the men and women's Royal Rumble matches.

Although they can be hit and miss, the odds usually give a good indication of the direction the results are heading towards.

It seems to be clear that The Beast won't be around for too long with the WWE ushering into a new era with the shake-up and the reported UFC return to fight Daniel Cormier for the UFC heavyweight championship.

If the bookies odds are anything to go by this time, then not only is Seth Rollins the favourite to win the Royal Rumble - alongside Becky Lynch - but The Kingslayer is also the favourite to finally slay The Beast and claim the Universal Championship, per Ringside News.


The rumours of a Rollins victory have been circulating since 2018, primarily because of social media activity and several sources claiming that Rollins had impressed the WWE so much that he would get the nod instead.


As we know, that went to The Big Dog instead and Rollins remained in the Intercontinental Championship picture.

It seems as if the WWE is finally getting behind Rollins once more like they did during his run as a heel. Plus, the history is there between the two.

While he's always remained popular, it was the segment with Triple H on Monday Night RAW earlier this week which reignited the flame inside him where he sounded more motivated than ever. Plus, being in a segment with The Game now suggests that big things could be on the horizon and with the shake-up in effect, Rollins could be the one that gets the nod to defeat Lesnar.

Will Seth Rollins be the one that dethrones Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship? Have YOUR say in the comments section below.
