House of Horrors: Part II
Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt

Result: Bray Wyatt defeats Randy Orton via pinfall.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

As Wyatt entered the ring, Orton appeared from behind and attacked him. How did he get out from underneath the fridge? What method of transportation did he use to get to the venue? Plot holes, man. Plot holes.

As Orton attacked Wyatt, the Singh Brothers attacked the Viper. Then, Jinder Mahal hit Orton from behind with the WWE Championship that he stole on SmackDown Live. That led to Wyatt picking up the win.

The part inside the house was fun. The in-ring action was average and short, much like the WrestleMania 33 match between Orton and Wyatt.

The interference from Mahal and the Singh Brothers pushed the narrative on the Backlash feud with Orton. It made sense to bring them in, especially with the No Disqualifications stipulation. These three still have the WWE Championship, too.
