The Rock 5/4 to Lay The Smack Down at WrestleMania XXVIII, Report Sky Bet

(March 29, 2012)

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 03/29/12 -- The Rock is the 5/4 outsider to defeat 10-time WWE Champion John Cena in Sky Bet's WrestleMania XXVIII market as the online betting company opens the book on professional wrestling for the first time in its history.

The actor, has not competed inside the squared circle since swapping wrestling for Hollywood in 2007 and is an outside bet against the organisation's golden boy Cena (4/7).

The Undertaker is also in action against Triple H in a 'Hell in the Cell' encounter, aiming to continue his remarkable run at WrestleMania, where he has won 19 consecutive bouts.

Unsurprisingly, 'Taker is 1/9 favourite to beat the former D-Generation X founder - who is 5/1 to end his opponent's streak.

Elsewhere, CM Punk (4/7) takes on Chris Jericho (5/4) for the WWE Championship, Daniel Bryan (3/1) faces Irish star Sheamus (2/9) for the World Heavyweight title and Intercontinental champion Cody Rhodes (10/11) defends his belt against the Big Show (4/5).

Sky Bet's wrestling compiler Ben Wright said: "Rock v Cena is a hard match to call, one that everyone has been weighing up for an entire year.

"When these two superstars enter the ring and the microphones are dropped, it's going to be a match to remember.

"If anyone can stop the Undertaker's streak becoming 20-0 it is Triple H. With Shawn Michaels as special guest referee 'The Game' has the advantage over 'Taker and at 5/1, there is good value in the Undertaker's WrestleMania legacy coming to an end in Miami."
