Roman Reigns remains the dominant force in WWE as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. After his impressive victory over Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39, Reigns' championship reign charges forward, with the 1,000-day milestone on the horizon.
With 2023 well underway, fans and experts are speculating whether Reigns will continue to rule the WWE title landscape throughout the year. Betting site BetOnline recently disclosed odds on who might close out the year as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion or, if the titles were to be separated, either the WWE or Universal Champion.
Reigns is unsurprisingly the odds-on favorite, coming in at -115. He leads the pack ahead of "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes and The Rock, a former WWE superstar not currently active on the roster, both listed at +200.
Reigns' Odds and Potential Upsets
If you're keen on gambling with an underdog, Edge, Santos Escobar, Solo Sikoa, Rey Mysterio, and The Brawling Brutes' Butch all sit at a staggering +10,000. However, recent challengers like Sami Zayn (+600), Kevin Owens (+500), and Drew McIntyre (+500) offer a more plausible risk-reward proposition, with a higher likelihood of capturing gold by year's end.
Turning our attention to the women's division, two distinct championships present two favorites. The newly crowned "SmackDown" Women's Champion, Rhea Ripley, is the frontrunner at -120. Meanwhile, the reigning "WWE Raw" Women's Champion, Bianca Belair, is a close second at -115.
Other prominent names in the women's division that may be worth a wager include Charlotte Flair, a slight underdog at +150, and Becky Lynch, who is not far behind at +200, sharing the same odds as Ronda Rousey. Liv Morgan, a rising star, is deemed less likely to end 2023 on top, with odds of +1000.
Zoey Stark, a standout performer from "NXT," faces some of the longest odds at +5000. The WWE landscape will undoubtedly shift as the year unfolds, with new challenges and rivalries emerging. Will Roman Reigns maintain his iron grip on the title, or will a new champion rise to dethrone him? Only time will tell, as professional wrestling keeps us enthralled with its captivating storytelling and high-octane action.
