Following his match against Baron Corbin, Randy Orton was being interviewed by Renee Young backstage when, suddenly and mysteriously, the lights began to flicker uncontrollably. The lights went out completely for several moments, and when they went back on, there was a light shining down on The Viper. Orton began to look around and soon saw a sea of individuals in sheep masks, who pounced on The Apex Predator. A few moments into the ambush, WWE Champion Bray Wyatt appeared.
He told Orton that burning down The Wyatt Family Compound had changed him and made him stronger than ever. The Eater of Worlds ordered his apparent minions to trap Orton before performing some type of dark ritual upon The Viper.
