Backstage News On The Randy Orton – Bray Wyatt Storyline

As seen on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, Randy Orton forfeited his WWE Title match against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33 this year. Daniel Bryan would later announced on Talking Smack that there will be a Battle Royal to determine a new #1 contender for the WWE Title next week’s episode of SmackDown.

The belief is WWE did this angle was to help fill storyline for the next month and Orton is still in the plans for the WWE Title match against Bray at WrestleMania. WWE officials have also been considering making the match at WrestleMania a Wyatt Family Triple Threat for WWE Title.

Speaking of WrestleMania, AJ Styles being included in next week’s #1 Contender Battle Royal will be part of the build for his match against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.

    Bad for Business if they had let the “Forfiet Royal Rumbe Winner Championship rights” , Royal Rumble would of been a waste,

      That’s TRUE if they go that route and that’s how it seems RIGHT NOW but it also seems like they have a plan they’re building towards WM33. Having Luke Harper win the battle royal, and Orton reclaiming his Rumble spot seems pretty good to me thus making the Rumble NOT a waste and a way to include Luke Harper in a main event spot rising up on the card.

    Harper will win, Orton will step back in on the guise of a 2 on 1 situation.
    Bray will have his guard down, Orton will RKO/Punt Bray as he’s pinning Luke to leave WM as champion. Bray will begin to ignore Abigails teachings and turn face, Orton will begin his long awaited feud with Styles.

    Orton should have come to ringside as soon as Harper attacked Wyatt, so they’re obviously planning something with Harper. That being said, Harper will not add much at all to a WM match, so I doubt it would be a triple threat.
