WWE News: John Cena and Ronda Rousey favourites to triumph at Royal Rumble Rousey is not a WWE star yet but has been tipped to make a historic debut in the over-the-top-rope challenge on January 28. Speculation has been going wild on the road to Wrestlemania and people close to the UFC legend have told USA Today earlier this month that the 30-year-old is set to make a sensational career change from the Octagon to the squared circle. The fighter has shared a video that shows her trying out wrestling holds with ex-Women’s Champion Natalya and the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative for WWE Triple H has said she and the WWE are interested in working together. The first ever female UFC Champion’s MMA career effectively came to an end when she lost to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds last year. And it looks almost certain that Rousey will be part of Wrestlemania 34. SkyBet place her as a 7/4 favourite to become the No.1 contender for either the RAW or Smackdown Women’s title, which could see her in a dream match against the likes of Charlotte Flair at the Showcase of the Immortals on April 8, 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our launch date is getting closer every day! Heres the latest preview for RondaRousey. com A post shared by rondarousey (@rondarousey) on Dec 1, 2017 at 12:43pm PST. After Rousey, Asuka weighs in at 2/1 followed by British star Paige at 6/1. Cena made his RAW return on Christmas Day and is considered the most likely star to win the men’s match in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Paddy Power place him as a 9/4 favourite, followed by Roman Reigns (5/2) – who looks certain to challenge Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania – and Smackdown LIVE superstar Shinsuke Nakamura (11/4). The 16-time world champion has won the Royal Rumble twice in his career and the WWE may be keen to have him break Ric Flair’s record of most world title wins. But if The Champ wins the big match then he will almost definitely be challenging the WWE Champion and probably revive his intense rivalry with current holder AJ Styles. The Royal Rumble match traditionally features 30 competitors and the aim is to throw your opponent over the top rope. The last wrestler standing is guaranteed a world title shot at Wrestlemania.
