Only Randy Orton could use NSYNC to sent a threatening message to the WWE Champion before a match inside Hell in a Cell.
The rivalry between Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre has been Raw’s main feud over the past couple of months, and it looks set to end inside WWE Hell in a Cell on Sunday. Despite the rivalry falling into some lulls due to the length of time it has been on our screens, we’ll probably look back on this fondly as a defining rivalry in McIntyre’s rise to superstardom.
Orton has done everything possible to keep getting chances at McIntyre’s title despite suffering two losses on Pay Per View, including attacking the very legends who cost him at Clash of Champions in an act of revenge. Nobody gets the last word on the Viper.
But aside from using brute force, Orton is also quite creative with how he tries to get inside the head of his opponent.
His latest trick? Using a Spotify playlist where the titles of each song spell out a targeted message to Drew McIntyre.
Randy Orton continues to show why he’s one of the legends
Using NSYNC’s “It’s Gonna Be Me” as the final song on the playlist is the cherry on top. I mean, who listens to NSYNC as their last pump-up song while lifting iron before they are headed for a hellacious match inside pounds of steel? (Actually, come to think of it, Randy Orton is such a monster he would absolutely do that…)
Also, big credit to the Viper for finding a song called “Drew” to start the playlist off with. So many nice touches in this “playlist”.
It’s awesome seeing how creative WWE superstars are, and subtle things like this are a reminder of how good the Apex Predator is at what he does.
WWE fans are in for a classic at Hell in a Cell between McIntyre and Orton, who have likely saved their very best in the ring for last. The Hell in a Cell structure was made for this rivalry.
