One of 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! Whenever you make a mention within the dinner table with family which you own a Carmella-Miz parlay, it tends 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 about the Superstation WTBS. I was always more amused by the athleticism of Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect, and Ric Flair than that I had been over cartoon characters such as Kamala, Yokozuna, along with the Ding Dongs.
When betting on these lunacy, its important to remember that there’s a script and timing is everything. I run through my DVR of RAW and Smackdown shows each month to keep up, as the WWE frequently likes to create storylines prefacing a swerve.
There are certain pay-per-views that are constructed for faces (good guys) like Wrestlemania, others that are space fillers that can have a whole lot of disqualification and count-outs (Backlash), plus a few that have large pools of wrestlers trying 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 ideal moment. Limits are reduced, and traces move at an insane pace. A $50 bet could ship a +500 underdog to +150. And if this underdog was really scripted to triumph, he/she would shut at -9999.
