To recap it all very quickly, The Fiend (now in his ‘normal‘ attire) dominated Randy Orton till the last moment. However, following a ‘Sister Abigail’, Bliss, in an “anti-christ” avatar, appeared on top of the Jake-in-the-Box and distracted Fiend.

Randy Orton took advantage of the distraction and hit an RKO to secure the victory. However, as Orton left the ring, the Fiend and Bliss shared some supernatural connection and disappeared completely from the arena in the blink of an eye.

This led to some confusion for the fans, as most were not sure what happened in the match. WWE Universe started tweeting shortly after the match and “The Fiend” and “Randy Orton” trended on Twitter.

As we mentioned earlier, the WWE Universe was quick to jump onto Twitter and share their fan theories. While many were disappointed with the “humanization of The Fiend,” some tried to come up with a plausible explanation.

Utterly disappointed and visibly confused:

Some fans gave a plausible explanation, too. One fan wrote, “Sister Abigail has been reborn in Alexa Bliss and distracted The Fiend which cost him the match. Abigail is an angel, and The Fiend is a Demon, both trying to control Bray Wyatt. Although I would’ve liked a longer match, it’s storytelling.”

Others also proclaimed how Sister Abigail was resurrected in Bliss following Fiend’s incineration at TLC 2020. As Fiend returned to his former self tonight, he also identified Abigail and responded to her “call,” losing the match.

While many believe WWE will break up Fiend and Bliss, that would certainly not be the case. The ambiguous ending kept future possibilities open. Maybe, The Fiend and Sister Abigail will unite and awake all the supernatural characters in WWE to form a stable of their own.
