In a few weeks Brock Lesnar will walk into the Royal Rumble pay-per-view as the Universal Champion, but there’s a chance he may not be walking out with the title as the champion is set to defend his belt against Kane and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match.
Of course the odds seem to be against The Beast, but this is Brock Lesnar we’re talking about after all, so if anyone can overcome the two monsters it’s him.
BetWrestling.com notes that Brock Lesnar is currently favored to retain his title with -500 odds. Braun Strowman and Kane are the underdogs going into the match with +300 and +1000 odds respectively.
Of course odds could always shift at the last minute, but fans have known for quite some time that Vince McMahon has had his heart set on another Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns WrestleMania match, and it doesn’t seem likely that The Beast will be dropping the belt before he faces off against The Big Dog.
