WWE wants to make betting legal in Colorado and Michigan

WWE is currently negotiating a deal with at least two states in the U.S. to make gambling on a wrestling match legal. 

WWE odds are available in a lot of foreign sportsbooks but with limitations.

The reason for this is simple: the WWE technically rigs its matches. Because the WWE scripted, there's a risk of the results leaking ahead of the match.

The WWE promises that it will withhold match results, even from the wrestlers, hours before the show.

However, this won't guarantee that someone who knows what will happen will look to make a quick buck while gambling will inevitably affect the decisions behind WWE's booking. 

Nevertheless, if the WWE gets approval, it could pave the way for other similar non-traditional gambling opportunities.
