WWE Raw ended this week with Bray Wyatt facing Randy Orton, but The Viper didn’t face The Fiend. Instead, he faced a Firefly Fun House version of Wyatt, but the Fiend did eventually make his presence known.
The lights cut out, and then The Fiend was there. That did not give Bray Wyatt enough time to change for real. Ringside News has learned that they had to use some camera tricks. Fortunately, the ThunderDome allows them that luxury.
When The Fiend appeared, the ThunderDome screens were all blank. There were no live reactions from fans because they didn’t watch that part live. It was pretaped before the show.
WWE was also running down to the “nitty gritty” on time, and the show needed to end at a specific point. They hit their mark, killed the lights, and pulled off a Wyatt switch. They were able to pull it off, but it took some work and a lot of planning.
You can check out the video below to see how they pulled it off.
