Oct. 27 (UPI) — Newly crowned WWE Champion Randy Orton was caught between The Fiend Bray Wyatt and his rival Drew McIntyre on Raw.

Orton, who won the title from McIntyre on Sunday at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, was invited to appear onto Alexa Bliss‘ talk show A Moment of Bliss in the main event.

Bliss is the new partner of Wyatt and hinted at big things happening on A Moment of Bliss during a demented installment of Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse that paid homage to Alice in Wonderland.

Wyatt has a long history with Orton and appeared upset as he thought back to how The Viper once burned down the Wyatt Family compound and the remains of his mentor, Sister Abigail.

Orton asked Bliss where Wyatt was during their interview but was interrupted by McIntyre who was looking for revenge. Bliss laughed in the corner as the grapplers fought each other until the lights in the arena went out.

The champ, when the lights turned back on, had escaped to the entrance ramp where Wyatt waited behind him. Orton chose not to turn around knowing what awaited him and instead headed back towards the ring to fight with McIntyre.
