I enjoyed this and I'm looking forward to a Orton/Wyatt feud. 

It makes sense with their history and it will be a interesting contrast of styles in the ring. It should make for some interesting promo work too with the wackiness of Bray and Bliss and the dark and cold style of Orton. 

I don't expect Bray to win the belt, he doesnt need it and Randy benefits from being champion much more at this point. Interesting that they are keeping the feud between Drew and Orton going as well but they surely cant be planning anymore matches between them at least not right away. It was said that Drew stabbed Randy in the eye with a pen as their show closing brawl continued as Raw went off the air, I wonder if this is a storyline injury to allow WWE to put Drew in the Survivor Series match with Roman Reigns instead of Randy because that is a much more interesting match.

This could be a very good fued, but it doesn't for me need Alexa Bliss involved. I would prefer Bray to be on his own.

These two because of their family trees have probably known each other since kids, but will never have thought back then they would be fueding all these years later in a big storyline.

To fit with the Fiend character and the sadistic side of Randall I would avoid them ever having a normal one on one match. Every match should have a stipulation.

USA wanted darker and edgier content, well they got that alright in this match. 

I personally loved this match, I've always been more of a sports entertainment guy rather than a pro wrestling fan, I would take crazy over the top stuff like this over a 45 minute Young Bucks match any day of the week. This was very much a Attitude Era style match. 

The Thunderdome environment meant that this match could be pre-recorded then carefully edited with effects applied and they certainly made the most of that advantage here. 

This was a gripping match as Wyatt and Orton brawled all around ringside with the ring and surrounding areas engulfed in flames, it was a amazing spectacle, the editing allowed for more realistic looking moments as Orton and The Fiend tried to force each other into the flames. 

The finish will surely rank as one of the more shocking moments in WWE history, Wyatt who had already caught fire once then ate a RKO from Randy who then doused The Fiend in petrol and set him ablaze. Of course it was a dummy of Wyatt that was lit on fire but this is where the editing was brilliantly done as you wouldn't know that it wasn't Bray lying in the ring burning based on what you could see with the naked eye. 

Reports are suggesting this may have been a way to ''kill off'' The Fiend so Bray can re-invent his character once again as Bray sent out a tweet with a pic of a chrysalis and the caption thank you. I personally hope that is not the case as I think there is a ton of mileage left in Bray's Fiend character, I could easily see him using this gimmick for many years to come perhaps with a few character tweaks here and there in much the same way The Undertaker and Kane did with their characters over the years. 
I think the only real argument to move away from The Fiend gimmick would be that perhaps its difficult for Bray to wrestle really good matches in the mask and the character has limitations on who he can work with effectively, but that wasn't the case here, this was easily the best match The Fiend has had perhaps ever, or at least the best since Daniel Bryan.
