WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Match winner ”The Apex Predator” Randy Orton versus the newly crowned WWE Heavyweight Champion ”The Eater of Worlds” Bray Wyatt should be official for WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, but, WWE is using cryptic language in their official WrestleMania 33 preview as they and the fans wonder if Orton vs. Wyatt will actually take place.
On Sunday after WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 PPV went off the air, WWE Smackdown Live GM Daniel Bryan talked about the issue in the same lines on Talking Smack, noting that we still have 7 weeks until WrestleMania 33, who knows what all can transpire in this huge time frame.
Bray Wyatt was one of the contestants of the six-man Elimination Chamber match this past Sunday alongside five other superstars including ”The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, ”The A-Lister” The Miz, ”The Lunatic on the loose” Dean Ambrose, ”The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin and the former WWE Champion ”The Face that Runs the Place” John Cena.
In the end, Bray eliminated AJ Styles to win the match and become the new WWE Champion.
WWE posted the following in their WWE WrestleMania 33 preview, and quoted this as a ”developing situation”:-
Are Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton destined to clash for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania?
Following his faithful follower Randy Orton winning the 2017 Royal Rumble, The Wyatt Family doubled down on their success when Bray Wyatt walked away from the Elimination Chamber Match as the new WWE Champion. However, amid The Eater of Worlds’ championship celebration, the WWE Universe has collectively begun to ask one simple question: Will he and Randy Orton actually clash at this year’s WrestleMania?
It is, of course, tradition for the Royal Rumble Match winner to take on the champion of their brand at The Grandest Stage of Them All. However, in this case, there are many variables. Will Wyatt and Orton want to face each other at WrestleMania? And will that point become moot if John Cena invokes a rematch clause for the WWE Championship between now and WrestleMania? As Daniel Bryan put perfectly on WWE Network’s Talking Smack, a lot can happen in the seven weeks leading up to WrestleMania.
Stay with WWE.com for more updates on this developing situation, and be sure to tune in to SmackDown LIVE, Tuesday at 8/7 C on USA Network, to see what happens next.
