3. Jim Ross Gives His Views On The House of Horrors Match From Payback 2017

As we noted before, the “House of Horrors” match between WWE Champion Randy Orton & Bray Wyatt received a lot of negative response. The people who were in the arena at Payback 2017 booed the match and chanted “boring”. Below is a video of this:

During a recent blog entry on his website, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross had the following to say about this match:

“The controversial House of Horrors match has seemingly been received mixed reviews. I did not ‘hate’ the match at all but could see where it might not have been an ideal fit for some fans especially those that were in the arena. These type bouts are often times calculated risks when it comes to presentation. It had some of the Hollywood Backlot Brawl qualities/feel that featured Goldust vs. Roddy Piper back in the day.

This was apparently a challenging presentation for some fans to embrace but could it actually be much to do about nothing? I was actually surprised that Wyatt won and thought the inclusion of Jinder Mahal and his crew was timely.”
