Balor is listed as the second favorite in the betting odds to win the royal rumble match next month in San Antonio, Texas. As of this report, Balor has moved from 6/1 odds up to 4/1 odds to win at Ladbrokes and only trails Bill Goldberg (5/4) on their listing. There’s been plenty of WWE rumors regarding Goldberg’s participation in the match as he was the first superstar to officially enter following his quick victory over Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series.
Chris Jericho has been involved in a entertaining angle with his best friend , the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens. For weeks the two palled around on WWE Raw, but just recently the friendship seems to have come to a halt. Jericho walked off on Owens during one episode, only to get attacked in the parking lot by Seth Rollins. Just this past Monday, Jericho was involved in a match against Roman Reigns, but lost due to Owens thinking he was helping out. That would seem to indicate these two former friends are on a collision course, possibly over the championship at WrestleMania 33.
That brings up the concept of Finn Balor winning the Royal Rumble. According to Wrestling Inc, Balor recently said his hard target to return to the ring is closer to WrestleMania. However, there’s been smoke screens thrown out by WWE and its personalities before in order to prevent surprises from being leaked.
