Technically, Brock Lesnar is not currently entered into the 2022 Men's Royal Rumble Royal Rumble match. Plenty of wrestlers have won the Rumble match without being announced for it ahead of time, however. We just need to look back to Becky Lynch's Royal Rumble victory in 2019 for proof of this. Oddsmakers currently have Lesnar tied as the top favorite to win the Rumble this year.

Lesnar will look to defend his WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble on Saturday. Whether he retains or loses the title could play a major factor on if he shows up in the Rumble match itself later in the show.

The rumors are that WWE wants Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar to headline this year's WrestleMania. Currently, Roman Reigns is the Universal Champion and Brock Lesnar is the WWE Champion. According to comments from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE does not want to have a title vs title match at WrestleMania.

“I was told no," Meltzer said when asked about a possibility of a title for title match. So, if Lesnar and Reigns are to face each other at WrestleMania, one of them is likely going to lose their title first and possibly move on to win the Royal Rumble that same night. The question then becomes, will it be Reigns or Lesnar who drops their belt? Scroll down to reveal more.

Bobby Lashley was the WWE Champion heading into and out of WrestleMania 37. If he defeats Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, he stands a good chance of doing the exact same thing at WrestleMania 38.

While Lashley is one of WWE's top Superstars, he's not as high-profile as Lesnar. If he's going to win the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble, he'll likely need some help. That help could come from Roman Reigns, who is Lesnar's longtime rival. Could Reigns interfere and cause Lesnar to lose the title?

The other possibility is that Lesnar interferes in Reigns' match at the Royal Rumble against Seth Rollins, costing him the title.

As of this moment, betting odds currently have Brock Lesnar as a bigger favorite than Roman Reigns to win the Rumble. Scroll down to reveal more on what the oddsmakers are saying.

Brock Lesnar and Big E are both currently listed with +350 odds to win the Royal Rumble match. Those are the best odds of anyone. Unlike Lesnar, Big E has actually been announced as participating in the match.

Roman Reigns has the 4th best odds of winning the Royal Rumble match. He is currently listed with +800 odds to win. Much like Lesnar, Reigns has not been officially announced for the Rumble and has a world title match scheduled for the event instead. Oddsmakers know he could still show up in the Rumble, however.

In fact, one person who believes Lesnar is the odds-on favorite to win the Rumble is Bobby Lashley's manager, MVP. Scroll down to reveal what he said about Lesnar possibly winning the Rumble.

MVP was on Corey Graves' After the Bell podcast and spoke about his belief that Brock Lesnar will win the Rumble.

"Brock Lesnar (will win the Royal Rumble), because Bobby Lashley is gonna beat Brock Lesnar," MVP said. "And, in his fury and rage, he’s going to enter the Royal Rumble so that he can get back a chance to face Bobby Lashley for what he believes to be his title back."

There's about a +350 chance that MVP's prediction comes true.

This is exactly what Becky Lynch did in 2019. She lost the Smackdown Women's Championship to Asuka earlier that night, then entered the Rumble and won it en route to the WrestleMania 35 main event.
