Wrestlemania 36 is one of the few major sporting events somewhat unaltered by COVID-19.
WWE’s biggest show has been moved to the organization’s training facility in Orlando, and will be held in front of no fans next Saturday and Sunday, April 4 and 5.
European sportsbook Ladbrokes had posted odds on a few of the biggest matches scheduled for Wrestlemania, including the WWE Championship between Drew McIntyre and Brock Lesnar.
Below we’ve listed the odds, plus the implied probability of each participant, according to those odds. The favorite will be listed on top.
- Drew McIntyre -250 (71.43%)
- Brock Lesnar +188 (34.78%)
Lesnar inserted himself into the Royal Rumble as the first participant, and dominated the first half until he was eliminated by McIntyre, who eventually won it.
That gave McIntyre the option to challenge someone to a world championship match at Wrestlemania, and he of course chose Lesnar.
- Rhea Ripley -200 (66.67%)
- Charlotte Flair +150 (40%)
Like McIntyre, Flair won the women’s Royal Rumble to setup a championship match at Wrestlemania. It’s the first time a Royal Rumble winner has chosen to challenge for an NXT title.
Roman Reigns was listed as a -1000 favorite over Goldberg in the Universal Championship, but Reigns has reportedly withdrawn from the event.
RAW Women’s Championship
- Shayna Baszier -137 (57.9%)
- Becky Lynch +100 (50%)
Lynch and Baszler have been feuding since Survivor Series in November.
Baszler won the Raw’s women’s Elimination Chamber match in early March to set up a bout with Lynch at WrestleMania.
- Bray Wyatt -275 (73.1%)
- John Cena +200 (33.33%)
Cena seemingly announced his retirement at Smackdown on Feb. 28, and said he wouldn’t appear at Wrestlemania since those spots need to be earned. But Bray Wyatt appeared, pointed to a Wrestlemania sign, and Cena simply nodded.
It will be a rematch of Wrestlemania 30, when Cena defeated Wyatt in a singles match.
- Kevin Owens -137 (57.9%)
- Seth Rollins +100 (50%)
