WWE Wrestlemania 37 2021 Day 2 Results: The Fiend sought to finally get payback against Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 once and for all after a tumultuous five-year saga.
But in one of the most bizarre encounters in WWE history, Alexa Bliss stunningly cost The Fiend his opportunity for retribution.
Transforming back into the previous visage of The Fiend — the one recognizable to the WWE Universe before Orton set him ablaze at WWE TLC — The Legend Killer’s rival emerged from a sinister, gigantic Jack-in-the-Box wound by Bliss.
From the word go, The Fiend overwhelmed an aghast Orton, while even three hanging DDTs by The Viper seemingly had no effect on The Fiend, who refused to stay down in Michael Myers-esque fashion. What was also heartwarming to see was the tribute by The Fiend to the late Luke Harper.

However, The Fiend planted Orton with Sister Abigail, only for Bliss to remerge atop the bizarre box in a completely different form, with a disgusting black ooze running down her face.
With The Fiend’s attention occupied, Orton recovered to drop him with an RKO for the pin.
Roman Retains Universal Title
The Tribal Chief still runs SmackDown and this was re-emphasized when he emerged victorious in the Triple Threat match between Daniel Bryan, and Edge. All three superstars pushed each other to the hilt with steel steps and tables. Even the crowd was heavily involved, booing Reigns but the champion was equal to it. Towards the end an interference by Jey Uso turned the tide in favour of Reigns, who ended the match with an emphatic win.
