MAJOR WWE Royal Rumble Rumor Shot Down?! NEW Betting FAVORITE! | WrestleTalk News Jan. 2018


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Wonder Oli, and I’ve got some super news! Because Wonder Oli’s a superhero. Super news. It’s a solid pun. Support WrestleTalk.com! After working on it for way too long, me,
Luke, James and everyone here at WrestleTalk are very proud to be launching WrestleTalk.com
today – which will not only have full article versions of the WrestleTalk News so you don’t
have to listen to my annoying voice, but also loads of articles on the latest wrestling
news, reviews, Royal Rumble predictions, everything you need to know ahead of this weekend’s
big New Japan shows, and more. Head over to WrestleTalk.com right now…
actually wait until you’ve finished watching this video first… by clicking the link in
the description below. Where as a launching treat, you can watch
the time Luke and I visited a wrestling action figure warehouse in a video previously only
exclusive to the WrestleTalk Magazine. Of course, we’ll be covering all the biggest
potential rumors, surprises and spoilers this Royal Rumble weekend. Royal Rumble news like… people denying they’ll
be there. Ronda Rousey Denies Royal Rumble Debut
Ever since last Summer, former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey has been rumored to
debut in WWE, which peaked during the Mae Young Classic tournament, where Rousey and
her MMA Four Horsewomen Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir staged several angles
facing off against the WWE Four Horsewomen of Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Becky
Lynch. Ronda and Duke reportedly started wrestling
training, and Baszler reached the Mae Young Classic finals. All seemed set for the MMA faction to debut
in WWE. But the Horsewomen vs Horsewomen match reports
cooled off, with Vince McMahon supposedly losing interest in the idea when he found
out there were no contracts with the MMA women in place. Baszler has since signed, and is actually
challenging for the NXT Women’s title this Saturday, but Duke and Shafir appear to be
classified as obsolete. Rousey, however, is still heavily rumored
to debut for WWE before WrestleMania, and possibly at this weekend’s Royal Rumble. Further supporting those reports, Rousey was
caught having dinner with Triple H in LA two weeks ago by TMZ, which The Game later confirmed
to ESPN: “We are talking to Ronda, as we’ve been for a while.” Keep that quote in mind when compared to Hunter’s
response to CBS Sports just a month earlier about the Ronda to WWE rumors: “that’s news
to me because I’m the one who would be having that conversation.” Triple H is, of course, playing the game. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. But it’s certainly something to be mindful
of when considering what Rousey told TMZ yesterday about a potential Royal Rumble appearance:
“I’m actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting ‘Mile 22’ and won’t
be back until mid February… no, I haven’t signed anything regardless of what anyone’s
said. No pen to paper for me.” Mile 22 is an action movie starring Mark Wahlberg,
which is actually filming in Colombia. But whether that really rules Ronda out of
Sunday’s Rumble match remains to be seen. New Royal Rumble Betting Favorites
The ‘smart money’ – bets placed by people with actual insider knowledge – doesn’t
come in until just hours before pay-per-views start, so take the new Royal Rumble betting
favorites with a large grain of salt… and also possibly a pillow to scream into. Because Oddschecker is listing Roman Reigns
as the current favorite to win the Rumble match, followed by Shinsuke Nakamura, John
Cena, Braun Strowman and Finn Balor. Daniel Bryan meanwhile – who jumped into the
Top 5 from outta nowhere last week – has slipped back down to 50/1. Support WrestleTalk.com! And that was the news. So you’re now free to visit WrestleTalk.com
and delight in all the written word and video wonders on its hallowed pages. News, reviews, features, videos of me and
Luke annoying a wrestling toy warehouse owner, New Japan previews and so much more. Click the link in the video description below
or the ‘i’ above my head to Support WrestleTalk.com now! Seriously, I’ll wait. For a bit, at least. I want to go and see
that film where Liam Neeson beats up a train. I’m Oli Davis, and that was wrestling.

  1. After Raw25 they have to have a kick arse Royal Rumble. Only Bryan or Punk can redeem one of the worst Raws in 25 years.

  2. It is an awwwwwesoooommmeeee website…thanks wonder oli…loved your work on YouTube…now there are new ways to make us appreciate your tenure…all the best

  3. The website is looking really good guys look forward to see how it develops and expands over time, congratulations Oli, Luke and the rest of the wrestletalk team.

  4. I clicked on the link to the website with much curiosity, expecting a pretty bad website, I mean, done with not much detail for presentation and good content, and nope. There it is, it is a beautiful page with good content!

  5. I think it’s more likely that Roman Reigns wins the EC! Here is a thought? Could the UNDERTAKER pehaps be ENTERING the RR match!?

  6. Brawn Strowman is the new favourite. He will come out at number 30, and proceed to tip the whole ring over, eliminating everyone in it.
    Next year he will win again by tipping the whole arena over.

  7. You guys are idiots. You realize Vince would only bring back the curb stomp in case of an emergency… gee I wonder what that would be. I mean no one else has the ripcord knee strike who is returning at royal rumble match right? It is labeled Ripcord Knee Strike 3 in WWE 2K18 as the new moves pack… Only person I know with that is Kenny Omega… but he won't return… ITS OBVIOUS HE IS RETURNING DUBASSES

  8. Fantasy booking: Roman wins the rumble (I know…boooooo!) And goes to face Brock at Wrestlemania. After Roman wins (and we know it's inevitable) he gets demolished by Brock and then Braun. Finally, Carmella cashes in her briefcase and takes the title, swerving everyone in the process and receiving the biggest pop in history!

  9. I love Roman, and I am actually looking forward to Reigns v Lesnar at WM. But it has been predictable for months now, so making Reigns win the Rumble would be too obvious and pointless. 🙄

  10. You mean you can actually win money by betting on the results of matches in the WWE? You know how much money I could have been making, because of the dirt sheets and plain old common sense?

  11. Wouldn't it be funny if Ronda Rousey and Trips was just having an affair, and she's not even going to sign with WWE? XD

  12. Oli: …so you don't have to listen to my anoying voice.
    Me: thank you, I really needed that. 😂😂😂
    Just kidding! 😂😂😂

  13. Roman won’t win the rumble because he will be the #1 contender for the universal champion at elimination chamber. This years rumble winner will come from SD

  14. Dude, need to sort out your redirects.
    www.wrestletalk.com doesn't work, but wrestletalk.com does.
    You also have lots of "page not founds/404s".
    If you need help, ping me a message. I deal with cloudflare, dns, websites etc. every day!
    Cheers.

  15. Thumbs Down! First 1:18 are advertising their new magazine. Plus none of the news are actually major news. Just speculation and rumors.

  16. Idk why wwe is so obsessed with rousey, shes a fallen star, she laid out like 3 time back to back.
    Focus on real wrestlers

  17. 6:50 Gimmick Infringement!
    How dare you peasant Oli?! How dare you try and steal Wonder Oli's spotlight? It is Wonder Oli's news piece, not yours, you peasant Oli. Wonder Oli is the only reason I and so many others stuck around till the end of the video. Not because of you, peasant Oli. Boo !

  18. He's not gonna win.
    Wwe knows what happend last time in Philly.
    Reigns is despised thier.

    And we all know the definition of insanity is doing the same thing 2 or more times and expecting new results.

    HE IS NOT WINNING THE RUMBLE.

  19. You guys know that the guys in the World Title matches at the Rumble are Not Allowed to actually participate in the Royal Rumble match itself Right? So AJ No! Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman and Kane should Not even be on the Favorite list.
