In the wake of his brutal encounter with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, Orton had time scheduled on SmackDown Live to speak on what is next for him … but then darkness came.
Suddenly, Bray Wyatt slowly crept to near the ring and sat ominously in his rocking chair. Wyatt would proceed to talk The Viper down, venting about the many frustrations and grievances he has with The Apex Predator.
Finally, Orton had enough with The New Face of Fear’s maniacal rant and challenged him to step into the ring and duke it out. However, before he could get his hands on The Eater or Worlds, the lights went out again and when they relit, Wyatt was gone and all that remained was an empty rocking chair.
