It’s not horribly unusual to see odds listed on certain events in television programming, like who might win “The Bachelor” or whether or not Don Draper is actually gay (Oh please…please…), but I did a double take when I saw that Bodog had set up money lines on Wrestlemania 27. The premiere event in pro wrestling is scheduled for this Sunday in Atlanta, and features the return of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as guest host and the appearance of Snooki of “Jersey Shore” fame in a six-man tag team match. And I guess some of the gays will be there, too.
The odds are listed in full after the jump, but the only one I could really take if you put a gun to me head is Triple H +600 over The Undertaker. It’s true that Mark Calaway’s character has never lost at WrestleMania (even defeating Triple H at WM 17 in 2001), but one has to wonder whether or not Triple H, who literally has an office in WWE headquarters as an executive senior advisor, will get his comeuppance.
And yeah, it’s all predetermined, but nobody walked out of Avatar screaming, “You know those big-assed blue people were fake, right?” Because that would have been very not cool.
My “gun to my head” picks in Bold.
