Randy Orton came before the WWE Universe, still enraged over the blindside attack by Bray Wyatt at Backlash. Upset that the attack led to Orton forfeiting this past Sunday, The Viper wasted no time in challenging his adversary to a match right then on SmackDown LIVE.
Instead, Wyatt appeared on the TitanTron to continue his usual mind games. When Wyatt’s ominous “DAT!” rang throughout the arena and the lights flickered out and back on to have him suddenly appear behind Orton near the announcer’s table, it seemed as though The Eater of Worlds might accept The Viper’s challenge. But then he vanished as quickly as he appeared.
But then, when it seemed matters could get no more bizarre, the lights flashed out and on again and Wyatt’s loyal follower Erick Rowan suddenly appeared in the ring to attack Orton. Rowan’s blindside was not enough though, as Orton finished Wyatt’s sheep with an RKO.
