• Outcome Of A Big WrestleMania 37 Match Was Changed
As seen in the opening match of Night 2 of WrestleMania 37, Randy Orton defeated “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt after an unusual activity with Alexa Bliss distracted The Fiend.
According to Fightful Select, the original plan for this match was for The Fiend to win.
However, Vince McMahon & Bruce Prichard ended up making this change this past weekend and the writers weren’t told an “end game” for this surprise finish.
“A “surprise” finish was pitched over the weekend, and we’re told Bruce Prichard and Vince McMahon were instrumental in the change and the decision making associated.
There was never a plan in order for a Firefly Fun House, and beyond that, many of those associated with the angle were never given an endgame at any point.”
Orton has now defeated Bray Wyatt twice at WrestleMania – 33 & 37 (in 2017 & 2021).
