WWE Royal Rumble marks the official start of the road to WrestleMania 37. Which female and male superstars end the night pointing at the WrestleMania sign? The event takes place on Sunday, January 31st at 7:00 PM ET with virtual fans in the WWE ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in Tampa. Read on for updated odds and a betting pick for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match.

WWE Royal Rumble 2021 Card

The full card is still in the works but the following matches have been confirmed:

WWE Championship Match: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Goldberg

WWE Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Kevin Owens

Women’s Royal Rumble Match

Men’s Royal Rumble Match

Rhea Ripley’s Chances

Rhea Ripley is reportedly moving to the main roster and what better way to debut than by winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Ripley could then challenge Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women’s Championship… if Flair wins the title from Asuka between now and WrestleMania.

It makes perfect sense because it would be a rematch of last year’s WrestleMania when Ripley lost the NXT Women’s Championship against Flair. This will instantly establish Rippley as the force to be reckoned with that she’s always been. She kind of lost her way after losing to Flair at WrestleMania but she’s still very young and to me, she’s the future of WWE’s Women’s division.

My money is on Ripley winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match. If Flair doesn’t win the Raw Women’s Championship between now and April I could see Ripley challenging Asuka, which would be another incredible match. Don’t bet the farm on it, make a small bet for fun.

What About Alexa Bliss?

I don’t even think that Alexa Bliss will be in the match, it just doesn’t seem that way because she’s been busy carrying Monday Night Raw while feuding with Randy Orton but it’s not hard to see why she has the third-best betting odds at +700.

Bliss’ new character as “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s ally has been unbelievable. Bliss has given us some of the best mic work of her career, which says a lot because she’s always thrived in promos. Hopefully, she will eventually have her own Fiend character, be a Fiendlexa, which could lead to another main event push and a championship run for her. Alexa Bliss could debut that character in the Women’s Royal Rumble match and destroy everyone in her path. I did find a prop I like on BetOnline: Alexa Bliss as the Raw Women’s Champion at the End of 2021 at +400 and I already bet it.

My Pick: Alexa Bliss as the Raw Women’s Champion at the End of 2021 +400 at BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review)

Author’s Note: In the January 18th episode of Raw, Alexa Bliss declared herself for the Women’s Royal Rumble match and I didn’t see it coming. This changes a lot. She also beat Asuka in a non-title match, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she wins the Women’s Royal Rumble match and challenges Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania. I will bet on her to win the Women’s Royal Rumble at +700 with BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review).
