People Are Making Tons of Money Betting on (Fake) Pro Wrestling

Pro wrestling is fake. Sad, but true. Hulk Hogan didn’t develop 24-inch biceps by taking vitamins, and Andre the Giant was not really a 500-pound giant. Regardless of the fixed nature of the sport, between January and April each year, referred to as”The Road to WrestleMania,” thousands of wrestling fans sacrifice their hard-earned bucks and put online bets on fixed WWE pay-per-view matches. Sure, gambling happens year round, but during those four months, the action is hot on a”sport” as predetermined as a Arnold Rothstein poker match.
Several online sports books, including 5Dimes and Bodog, have been accepting bets on pro wrestling for decades, and recently professional wrestling insiders have begun to notice an unsettling trend. You see, unlike boxing or MMA, the odds for pro wrestling games (favorites vs. underdogs), reverse in such a manner that professional wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, that has been covering the company for nearly 30 years, is convinced insiders are pulling the strings. “If you’re smart and you know folks,” says Meltzer,”you can make money because you’ll understand what the outcomes are.”
For instance, during the WWE’s”Tables, Ladders, and Chairs” pay-per-view last December, only hours before the main event between John Cena and Randy Orton, something unusual occurred. John Cena, the WWE’s biggest star and the”good man” was a clear favorite going into the show. But only hours before the game, Randy Orton, the”bad man,” shifted to a 750-point favorite. In the actual world, this sort of motion on the lines will never occur without among the opponents breaking a leg, literally.
“Smart cash,” that is gambling with insider knowledge of the results, shifted the equilibrium in Orton’s favor. And the experts, including watchdog sites like WWE Leaks, all seem to believe that WWE workers, or additives inside the organization, are responsible for the shift in the odds. Does”smart money” control the likelihood of the many online sports books, in addition, it makes for a shitty experience of seeing a series where the script has leaked every single moment.
It really took the WWE them nearly six months to realize, via a Deadspin article that raised a couple of eyebrows this past year, that their storyline outcomes were being leaked. Nobody knows for sure who is responsible, but a mysterious Reddit user, who the WWE called a”modern day Nostradamus,” appears to have a good idea. Going by the nonsensical alias Dolphins1925, the accounts has been able to forecast the outcomes of each WWE pay-per-view match since February of the year with near 100% accuracy.
In accordance with Dolphins1925, who went up to posting his own manifesto to warrant his spoilers, someone inside the WWE is leaking the results straight to him via a connection. His results are posted in the popular Squared Circle Prediction Series of Reddit. Meltzer, who claims to have a good idea who Dolphins1925 is, seems confident that the Reddit consumer is the actual thing. “He absolutely has a relationship,” says Meltzer, who also tells VICE that the WWE would fire the leaker, assuming they discover the mole.
But that’s just it–the WWE doesn’t appear to care about match outcomes being leaked. No action has been taken, publicly that is, and if asked for a comment, the WWE refused to admit the issue with any seriousness.
