Wyatt Hypes Showdown With Orton
WWE Champion Bray Wyatt hyped his WrestleMania showdown with Randy Orton in a recent press conference. “It’s beautiful. It’s beautiful. And going into the biggest event of the year, me and Randy have so much history together now,” explained the ‘Eater of Worlds.’
…there is the twists and the turns, and how bad I really just want to hit him! Ha ha. It gives the fans a platform, to really invest in something, and that’s a tribute to a lot of people. But it’s going to be something special man, that I promise you.
Wyatt will be defending his Championship in a single’s match against Orton this Sunday, but it will not be the final match on the card. The betting odds have Bray favorite to win, with possible outside help from Luke Harper.
