The Fiend was meant to beat Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 before Vince McMahon changed course just days before

Most fans were left perplexed with how The Fiend versus Randy Orton went down at WrestleMania 37.

In the shortest match over the two nights of WrestleMania, Randy Orton would defeat The Fiend after Alexa Bliss distracted Bray Wyatt.

It only took one RKO for Randy Orton to beat The Fiend

Following ‘RAW After WrestleMania’, it seems that was meant as a betrayal from Bliss and the dark union between her and Wyatt is no more. However their characters are set to continue, just separate.

Heading into WrestleMania and this feud in general, it appeared as though might finally get his own back on Orton.

After all, Orton infiltrated the Wyatt family in 2017, burned down Wyatt’s house, beat him for the WWE title at WM33 and then burned him to death last year at TLC! It’s been pretty much one-way traffic.

According to Fightful Select, Wyatt was meant to get a big win back this weekend, but instead, Vince McMahon changed the finish to an Orton win and now Wyatt is split from Bliss!

Fightful noted the finish was changed some time over the weekend, making Orton the winner. Heading into WrestleMania week, Wyatt was the working plan as the winner.

It was noted that people associated with the storyline were never given an endgame at any point, past the fact that it would write Orton off WWE TV for a good period of time.

A “surprise finish” was reportedly pitched over the weekend. Word is that WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, and Senior Vice President Bruce Prichard, were instrumental in the change and the final decision making, as they would be.

WWE officials seemed happy with the finish as it played out, but Fightful says there are wrestlers within WWE who are very confused about what happened.

Given the reaction on Twitter, the wrestlers aren’t the only ones who are confused by what went down!

Orton was chasing the WWE title on RAW and Wyatt appeared in a Firefly Funhouse segment insisting that it was going to be a new him moving forward. It seems like the story is done in WWE’s eyes, but that isn’t clear yet as Orton still isn’t written off TV.
