Among the most frequently asked questions that I get out of non-degenerates is,”You can bet on the WWE?!?!” The answer is always an emphatic Daniel Bryan-like YES! YES! YES! When you make a course within the dinner table with family that you have a Carmella-Miz parlay, it has a tendency to turn heads.
I’ve been watching pro wrestling since the early 1980s, when NWA wrestling and Atlanta Braves baseball had been a Saturday showcase on the Superstation WTBS. I was always more entertained by the athleticism of Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect, and Ric Flair than I was over cartoon characters such as Kamala, Yokozuna, along with the Ding Dongs.
When gambling on such lunacy, its important to keep in mind that there is a script and timing is everything. I run through my DVR of both RAW and Smackdown shows each month to maintain, as the WWE often likes to create storylines prefacing a swerve.
There are certain pay-per-views that are built for faces (good men ) like Wrestlemaniaothers which are space fillers which can have a ton of disqualification and count-outs (Backlash), plus a few that have large pools of wrestlers attempting to acquire a single occasion (Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank). Wagering on WWE is only about anticipating the script and grabbing the ideal wrestler at the right moment. Limits are low, and traces move at an insane pace. A $50 bet could send a +500 underdog to +150. And if this underdog was really scripted to triumph, he’d close at -9999.
