During tonight’s Raw main event, AJ Styles and Randy Orton faced each other to qualify for the triple-threat qualifying match for the number one contender of the WWE Championship.
Towards the end of the match, Orton was overpowering Styles and was at touching distance from victory. The men were brawling outside the ring as the red lights came up and the menacing sounds of The Fiend played for just a second. The Fiend appeared on the other side of the barrier, just inches away from Orton. Orton looked over and saw The Fiend’s face and got startled.
Post that, the normal lights came back up. AJ Styles took advantage of the startled Orton. The Viper countered and got ready for the RKO as the eerie sound played again. The Fiend appeared right behind Orton, growling at him.
Lights became normal again, and it seemed everything was Orton’s hallucination. AJ Styles took advantage of the worried Orton and hit the Phenomenal Forearm for the victory. Orton was visibly upset as the Fiend’s laughter echoed in the ThunderDome, minutes before Raw went off-air.
Long before the match, Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss welcomed the fans to the Firefly Fun House. They started talking about “something evil, vile and repulsive” – friendship.
Wyatt said one-minute friends are there as they should be, burning the midnight oil with you, and the next minute, “they’re burning something else.”
We saw a flashback to when Randy Orton set fire to The Wyatt Compound. However, then the topic shifted to Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss. For a brief moment in time, Randy Orton was a member of the Wyatt Family. However, it was all a ploy to get Bray Wyatt to drop his guard so that he could burn down the Wyatt Compound, hence the reference.
Randy Orton and The Fiend are coming back to where they left off. Do you think this would be a good continuation after all this while? Let us know in the comments below.
