The Fiend Returns!

On the road to WrestleMania, there’s always a few stops. Elimination Chamber has been one of those stops for the past few years, but there’s also Fastlane. This year, the Royal Rumble winner, Edge, was to be ringside as the special enforcer for the championship match between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns. The match ended with Reigns pinning Bryan, but that wasn’t without controversy, which will no doubt be on many fans minds as WWE continues on toward Tampa Bay and WrestleMania.

The night also saw Retribution members all turn on their leader, Mustafa Ali. Shinsuke Nakamura fell to Seth Rollins, who was quick to point out how great the suit he was wearing before the event was. The unsteady tag team of Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair imploded, as the two lost their match to the women’s tag team champions, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. And there was a brutal, no disqualification match between Drew McIntyre an Sheamus, that saw McIntyre through a row of screens in the Thunderdome.

The talk of the night had to go to the returning Fiend, though. Many thought the nightmarish wrestler might have been gone forever, after Randy Orton set the wrestler on fire months ago. Though he hadn’t been seen, in the time since, Alexa Bliss had been tormenting The Legend Killer, haunting the future Hall of Famer. Either by freaky warnings of Randy’s own self talking to him, or forcing the Viper to regurgitate an eery black ooz. No one knew what to expect when Alexa Bliss was to fae off against Randy Orton.

The match started off just as creepy as the two’s interactions have been. Flying fireballs in the ring and mysteriously falling lighting structures nearly hitting Orton. In the end, while Bliss baited Orton in the ring, almost daring him to make another move, a haunting hand emerged through the ring. The camera’s focused to see charred skin, and the fire and smoke filled the area.

The Fiend came out through the ring to a stunned Orton. The haunting image of a scorched Fiend was on full display, with darker clothes, and a face that looked like it had melted to the creepy mask he wears. As Randy Orton tried to come to grips with what was happening, Alexa Bliss pushed him from behind, right into Sister Abigail by The Fiend. With Orton on out on his back, Alexa was able to easily cover him for the win, all with The Fiend standing over them both.

At the time of this article, it isn’t known what’s next for the Fiend. One would have to assume he intends on a full course of revenge for what Randy Orton did to him. Just what the revenge includes, and if it’ll take place at this year’s WrestleMania, we’ll have to wait and see.
