Randy Orton Betrays Bray Wyatt, Severs Ties

It’s been a long time coming, and if you have been paying attention to what’s been going on over at the blue brand of WWE, then you know that the tale of Randy Orton and WWE World Champion Bray Wyatt was one that you knew would come to a head sooner or later.

This past Tuesday, on Smackdown LIVE, that finally came to pass, as Randy Orton would sever ties with Wyatt in one of the most incredible displays of betrayal.

By the ending of SD, the WWE Universe had already witnessed AJ Styles picking up the victory against Luke Harper for the #1 contendership for Wyatt’s title at WrestleMania 33, a spot that was given up by Royal Rumble winner Orton recently, as he pledged his allegiance to Bray.

“You gave me the keys to the kingdom, so here I am, dead center…in the kingdom, dead center of all the inequities of your world…” – Randy Orton

However, by the end of SD, that all changed, with Orton appearing at the Wyatt compound, the resting place of “Sister Abigail“, and the essential place of worship for the Wyatt family.

Telling Wyatt that the compound, that his world, was only Bray’s and not his own, and that he believed in the mantra of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”

Orton would go onto tell Wyatt that as long as Bray was the master, that Randy would pledge his allegiance, but that once he set the compound ablaze, that the roles would reverse, with Orton becoming the master.

With Bray Wyatt kneeling in the middle of the ring, begging and pleading with Randy Orton, who was relaying the message via video feed, Orton would set the compound on fire, and set Wyatt on the course to a meltdown.

Now, whether this leads to a three-way championship match at ‘Mania between Styles, Wyatt and Orton remains to be seen, however, it would not be the first time that has happened, nor the first time Orton was involved in a three-way for the title. We will keep you posted, as this story develops.
