While reviewing this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw with SK Wrestling, Vince Russo has shared the issues that he has with the ongoing storyline between Alexa Bliss, The Fiend Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton.
Vince Russo said that logic dictates that The Fiend is going to appear at the Royal Rumble after being burned by Randy Orton at TLC last month. Russo then questioned the logic in not having The Fiend appear on Raw this week.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Royal Rumble is on Sunday. I would have to believe it looks like Orton is going to win the Royal Rumble and then the lights gimmick — boom boom boom — here comes The Fiend.”
“Okay bro, now we have a huge problem. If that’s the case, why don’t we see The Fiend tonight and if we’re going to see The Fiend on Sunday, why would he have allowed this to happen to Alexa Bliss tonight?”
“You see what I’m saying bro? You know you are going to see him on Sunday. So, where was he for Alexa Bliss tonight? I believe a lot of this happens because they are writing it at the last minute so they are leaving so many holes, they’re not able to follow everything through because if he’s going to make an appearance at the Royal Rumble we should have seen him tonight making some kind of save on Alexa Bliss.”
Dave Meltzer reported a few weeks ago that Randy Orton isn’t actually going to be in the Royal Rumble match and is going to have a cinematic gimmick match with The Fiend at the show, although that looks unlikely now.
The storyline between Alexa Bliss, Randy Orton and The Fiend has recently been divisive. While some fans think the segments have been corny, the videos are consistently the highest performing on YouTube in terms of views.
