Last minute changes have been made by the sports book. Brock Lesnar is now favored to retain the heavyweight championship against Roman Reigns, and the reason for that is because he signed a new contract with WWE. Triple H is now favored to defeat Sting in his Wrestlemania debut match. No word on why those particular odds did a complete shift, but the theory floating around is that it is because so many were betting on the WCW legend.

Despite the new contract signed by Brock Lesnar, the sports books are still listing Roman Reigns as the favorite to win the main event of Wrestlemania. Their belief is that WWE has already pulled the trigger on his superstar push, so they are just going to go through with it. The front office can always put the heavyweight championship belt back around the waist of Lesnar at a later date. Reigns is a -210 odd, while Lesnar is +160.

However, Waltman did go through some really dark times that should not be in the spotlight.

Aside from being a very popular performer, one of the biggest reasons why WWE likes having Booker T around is because of his life story. As many of you already know, the former world heavyweight champion was a troubled youth. However, he managed to turn things around with his life and found success, both as a wrestler and as a businessman. It is great for public relations because they can tout that they give second chances.
