It seemed like the easy bet of all-time, but alas it wasn’t.
Some guy lost £35,000 betting The Undertaker to beat Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Surely not 😂 pic.twitter.com/qAgGqH6EA8

35k British Pounds = $58,149 in US Dollars.
According to Houston Press the odds for Taker win got as high as -6000, while if you were the lucky soul who bet on Lesnar you at one point could get odds at +5000. But, then something funny happened as it got closer to Wrestlemania the odds dropped to -2000 for Taker and +1000 for Lesnar.
What that means is something got the information early that Undertaker might lose and a flood of money came in on Lesnar.
Wonder if this will stop casinos from taking bets on Wrestlemania in the future?
