Fans are pretty upset about the outcome of Randy Orton vs. Alexa Bliss at WWE Fastlane. This must be the most frustrating moment for all the Randy Orton fans around the world. Randy Orton is a 14 times WWE World champion and this is seriously not the way to present him. We cannot say that he is past his prime yet. He is only forty and for a professional wrestler, this age is nothing.
This is understood that WWE booked this match just to promote Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt match at WrestleMania 37. But was it the only way to promote the match? There were way better options to do it.
Randy Orton vs. Alexa Bliss Was A Big Fail? – Full Analysis
And that pin, we could easily except that on a mid-card or an under-card but on Randy Orton? This is just impossible to digest. Even Randy Orton’s wife Kim Marie was pretty upset about the pin, she expressed her anger on Twitter by saying, “@AlexaBliss_WWE you might’ve just f***ed up little girl.”
Another big point talking about this match, probably the biggest reason why this match is a fail and does not make any sense is, it was a normal singles intergender match, then how come Bray Wyatt attacked Orton during the match? The bell rang and the referee was not knocked out either. The referee left the ring as soon as Bliss hit the first fireball on Orton. What happened to him was never been cleared. It was neither a No DQ match nor a No Holds Barred match. So this finish does not make any sense.
Now let us talk about how WWE should have booked this match. The first thing and most important thing, Alexa Bliss should never have pinned Orton. The match should have gone to a contest or a double disqualification finish. That was the only way to make some sense to show Bray Wyatt’s return. This feud will lead to Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 37 surely. But what is the point of all this now? Orton cannot even lay his hands on Alexa Bliss, and now he will face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania? Does this make any sense?
One thing has been cleared long ago that Alexa Bliss is not sister Abigail. She is just possessed by Bray Wyatt. This is how this story works, right? So she gets supernatural abilities like throwing fireballs and moving things without even touching them? Who even came up with such an idea? If she has all the supernatural abilities, then she is totally unstoppable and untouchable. A 14 times World Champion Randy Orton could not even touch her, then how come women will fight her?
With such a disgusting booking, WWE Raw creative team has proved why Smackdown creative team doing a hundred times better job than them. A potentially huge match is totally ruined thanks to some nonsense booking. We are not sure if Randy Orton could ever recover from this damage.
