Betting Odds: 16/1
WWE reportedly has altered a skeleton for many WrestleMania 33 matches, definition that Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg is no longer a close it once seemed to be.
If that is truly a case, afterwards Lesnar, who many figured would be tossed out by Goldberg (if they don’t discharge any other), has positively turn one of a favorites in a Royal Rumble match, where he total to be among a bout’s many widespread performers. It took a whole Wyatt Family to discharge Lesnar from a 2016 Royal Rumble, yet after Lesnar was broke by Goldberg during Survivor Series, he’ll expected be on a warpath to infer that his detriment was zero some-more than a fluke.
Lesnar is one of WWE’s tip special attractions, so artistic could book him to win a Rumble and plea for a Universal pretension in one of a WrestleMania 33 categorical events like he did when he shielded a WWE pretension during WrestleMania 31.

Especially if Reigns is holding a Universal pretension during WrestleMania 33, Reigns vs. Lesnar for a belt creates clarity as a approach to finally give a correct finale to a WrestleMania 31 categorical eventuality that never got one.
Betting Odds: 4/1
Even yet WWE has reportedly scrapped skeleton for The Undertaker to take on John Cena or plea for a World pretension during WrestleMania 33, this is a WWE, where skeleton change some-more mostly than The Shining Stars’ gimmick.
It’s still formidable to suppose The Undertaker entering his initial Royal Rumble compare given 2009 if a devise isn’t for him to win it and face someone like Cena, AJ Styles or even Roman Reigns for a World pretension during ‘Mania. After all, consider that WWE’s biggest WrestleMania pretension matches in new years have typically concerned part-time stars, such as Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Batista and The Rock.
You also have to cruise that The Undertaker could win because, on announcing his entrance into a Royal Rumble, he was initially a betting favorite. He has been unseated from that mark during times, yet he has consistently remained among a tip 3 or 4 favorites on many betting sites.
Things would be opposite if WWE didn’t have a fashion (and a few other examples) for guys in a purpose identical to that of a Undertaker winning a Royal Rumble/and or severe for a World pretension during WrestleMania. But WrestleMania mostly revolves around WWE’s biggest names, and Undertaker positively fits that bill.
With skeleton constantly elaborating and clearly never set in stone, don’t be astounded if The Undertaker, an early favorite, is, in fact, a male who ends adult winning a Royal Rumble match.
