Wyatt tweeted the picture of a cocoon, which could only mean one thing. By setting him on fire, Orton has unleashed the true monstrosity in Bray Wyatt. 

Rather than burning him out of existence, Orton set his nemesis free, and the worst is yet to come. We may see this darker character come out on Raw tomorrow night. 

Randy Orton seemed outmatched for the first time in the Firefly Inferno setup. “The Fiend” was in his own ballpark and nearly succeeded in setting Orton on fire on multiple occasions. 

However, ‘The Legend Killer’ made it out alive by initially setting the masked character on fire to win the match. He powered out of the Mandible Claw hold to do this.

Although a lot of people were amazed by the way WWE pulled the burning part off, it was clear through the replays that the body was only a prop. 

Orton, thinking he had buried the feud once and for all, walked away. But, Wyatt went on to thank him for unleashing the true demon inside, which left fans excited about things to come.
