We may only be four months removed from the 2015 Royal Rumble match and the night that will be remembered for one thing, but eyes are already looking towards next years event.

This year's event held in Philadelphia was marred by the ending which saw the WWE Universe loudly boo Roman Reigns as he won the Royal Rumble.

Despite an appearance from the Rock and Reigns overcoming the Authority and Rusev, the fans didn't take too kindly to his victory.

There were even reports claiming that fans clashed with superstars outside the arena after the event had ended.

After the events that transpired in the Wells Fargo Center in January, there is already a lot of pressure on the WWE to get it right at next years show.

Roman Reigns became the first former Shield member to win the Rumble this year and the odds for next year are already backing another to do it next year.

He may currently be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but the early betting odds list Seth Rollins as the early favourite to win next years Rumble.

Rollins will certainly be losing the title eventually but to go from cashing in Money in the Bank at WrestleMania to winning the Royal Rumble would certainly mark a break through year for Rollins.

Also listed amongst the favourites for next year's Rumble match is the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and the man he faced at WrestleMania XXXI in Roman Reigns.

Daniel Bryan is listed amongst the favourites despite being out injured for an undetermined period of time with his appearance at the Rumble not even confirmed for next year.

Ryback holds the same odds as Bryan and winning the Royal Rumble would be an incredible push for the Big Guy.

Interestingly, the man who was the most impressive in this years match isn't close to the favourites as Bray Wyatt is found quite far down the list.

There are still seven months until the Royal Rumble but if the early betting is correct, then next years event in Orlando, Florida should contain a fair few surprises.
