• Favorite To Become The Next Universal Champion Revealed
Sky Bet has released betting odds regarding the current favorite to become the next Universal Champion.
Former WWE Champion Seth Rollins is currently the top favorite to become the next Universal Champion.
This is in accordance with the report we provided via the Dirty Sheets, which stated that Triple H is pushing for Rollins to take the Universal Title off Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 as he feels Rollins can fill the void left by Roman Reigns’ departure.
As for Braun Strowman challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at Royal Rumble 2019, both Vince McMahon & Triple H don’t view Strowman as a long-run top babyface and that’s why Triple H wants to save the win over Lesnar for Rollins.
Although Vince wants to have Braun win the Universal Title at Royal Rumble 2019 and then drop it to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35, it looks like they’re now going with Triple H’s plan.
According to the betting odds, below are the top 5 favorites to become the next Universal Champion:
– Seth Rollins 10/11
– Braun Strowman 5/2
– Drew McIntyre 3/1
– The Rock 14/1
– Bobby Lashley 14/1
