Randy Orton is a true veteran in WWE, having worked in the company for almost two decades. He remains one of the most dependable Superstars in the company and is never afraid to express his opinion when needed.
Randy Orton was involved in a longstanding feud with Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss which had a lot of cinematic elements to it. While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Conrad Thompson asked Randy Orton what he thought of cinematic matches in general.
Orton admitted that if he was asked that question a couple of years ago, Orton would have ‘s***’ all over’ it. However, his opinion changed after the Firefly Fun House match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt from WrestleMania 36.
“If you would ask me that same question a year or two ago, I would have sh** all over the whole cinematic matches thing. I remember, I guess, ‘Mania 36, watching Cena versus Bray – I thought that was brilliant. I don’t know if this has come out in an interview or anything, but I think Bruce Prichard and John Cena were up at the warehouse in Connecticut and they were walking around just trying to think of how they were going to do this and how they were going to make it different.”
Orton added that Cena and Wyatt’s cinematic match was “awesome” for its uniqueness as well. Many fans share the same sentiments as the pro wrestling world took a while to warm up to the idea of cinematic matches. Now it has become a specialty and used by other companies such as AEW as well.
