Published 11/02/2020, 11:50 PM EST


Bray Wyatt’s interjection into Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton‘s rivalry has given us some very cool moments on Raw. The mind games played by Wyatt and his new demonic friend, Alexa Bliss, have creeped out Randy Orton. McIntyre has not yet been introduced to the Fiend formally, but surely, that day will come soon.

Drew McIntyre faced Mr. Money in the Bank, The Miz, and John Morrison in a two on one handicap match. The match was fast paced and full of action.

Miz and Morrison used their heelish antics to upset the former WWE Champion. McIntyre kicked out of everything Miz and Morrison threw at him, even surviving the Skull Crushing Finale.

McIntyre picked up the win with a jaw-shattering Claymore Kick to the Miz. Unfortunately, Randy Orton struck before McIntyre could celebrate his victory properly.

As Randy Orton stood over McIntyre with his WWE Title raised, Bray Wyatt’s laughter echoed in the ThunderDome. Orton looked visibly spooked by Wyatt’s mind games.

The Fiend has proven to be a master at playing mind games and messing with his opponents’ psyche before a big match. Earlier in the show, Alexa Bliss took part in a stomach-churning segment inside the Firefly Funhouse. The internet exploded at the segment and Randy Orton has to be on edge after seeing the Firefly Funhouse segment.

Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton is far from over

Drew McIntyre seems to be in prime position to become Number One Contender for Orton’s title. He has recorded two wins against The Miz and has already grabbed Orton’s attention with an attack at the beginning of the show.

Orton returned the favour at the end of the night, but the more important message delivered to fans: Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton is far from over.

This proves that McIntyre deserves a shot at reclaiming the title that defined the year 2020 for him. On the other hand, Orton has had quite a good year. It would be unfortunate if he was fed to the Fiend so soon.

Bray Wyatt’s mind games continue each week on Raw, and he will have some role to play in the run up to Survivor Series. Whether it will be him or Drew McIntyre to challenge Randy Orton, we are yet to find out.
