That’s a little intense. Wrestling is the kind of entertainment which can throw you a curve ball every now and then. Sometimes you see something that goes a good bit over the top and you aren’t quite sure what to think of it. This can be either good or bad, but in this case we have something a little more out there and it went to a rather different level of violence.
One of the bigger feuds coming into this weekend’s Tables Ladders And Chairs event was Randy Orton vs. the Fiend Bray Wyatt. These two have been going back and forth for several weeks now, with Orton not being able to gain his usual mental edge in the feud. Instead he tried to light Wyatt on fire this week on Monday Night Raw but was attacked by the Fiend instead. That led us to the pay per view and things went a bit differently.
And then this happened. Check out how the show ended:
Orton vs. the Fiend in a Firefly Inferno match headlined the Tables, Ladders And Chairs pay per view, with the match ending when Orton lit Fiend on fire. After the match was over, Fiend charged into the ring and was caught with the RKO. Orton would then pour gasoline onto Fiend and lit him on fire to end the show, with Fiend burning as Orton posed to end the show. Wyatt sent out a tweet after the match, saying “thank you” and showing a picture of a cocoon.

Opinion: I’m not sure what to think of this and I can’t imagine I’m alone. This is one of those ideas that you don’t see take place in wrestling very often and I’m almost worried to see where it is going. If this is the kind of edgier content that WWE is shooting for, it is going to take some time to get everything going in the right direction, as this is going to get some fans talking in a bad way.
What did you think of the angle? What do you see it going next? Let us know in the comments below.
