Betting on Wrestling

Hi Scott

Betting on wrestling these days is quite common, but the first time I ever saw it here in the UK was in 2001. 

Ladbrokes, a UK betting chain, where offering odds on “who would be WWF Champion on New Years Eve 2001”. 

The answer was Chris Jericho, but let's be honest, in 2001 who would have thought Y2J would end up with the gold?

Do you think it would be safe to assume that the now WWE and Ladbrokes had some sort of agreement going on? 
So wait, you’re saying that wrestling might not be 100 percent on the level?  Holy shit.
