Johnson is not the only one to talk about this. Throughout the match, fans tweeted over how great the entire thing looked. Although, the fight got its fair share of flak. 

Critics argue that the inferno setting was too stressed and that the announcement of winning by setting the opponent on fire was redundant. 

“The Fiend” on fire was as good as it gets, but the second body the Orton actually set fire to was clearly a prop. A lot of fans noticed this as the camera angle changed. 

According to the storyline, Orton has set fire to Wyatt twice now. He unleashed his characteristic sadistic side on “The Fiend” who attempted to burn Orton alive twice himself.

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt is very much alive 

Things didn’t go his way, however, and Orton managed to beat him at his own game. ‘The Viper’ made it out alive and thought that he had ended Bray Wyatt. He thought wrong. 

Wyatt later assured WWE fans that he was very much alive on Twitter by sharing a picture of a cocoon, and thanked Orton. We can all but expect Wyatt to show up today night on Raw.

The character will surely emerge stronger than ever, and Orton has to keep his guard up at all times. 

Unfortunately, the match at TLC fell short in the eyes of many fans who rated the other fights higher. Randy Orton vs “The Fiend” was expected to be in cinematic style, but disappointed viewers in ways.

Apart from the ending and the sparks of brilliance in between, it should have been a card match rather than the main event.
