Last night’s Raw ended in shocking fashion with Randy Orton wrestling Bray Wyatt one minute and after the lights went off, The Fiend was the one in the ring with Orton. Orton found himself on the receiving end of the Mandible Claw as the show came to a close.
But how did it get pulled off? It had to be no easy feat.
Ringside News has reported how WWE managed to pull off this trick, so if you want to preserve the magic, you may want to stop right here.
When The Fiend appeared, the ThunderDome screens were blank. This was a trick they have started to do with the arrival of The Fiend, special videos on the screens around the ring. They had no live reactions from fans because it wasn’t watched live, having pre-taped the Fiend portion of the end of the show ahead of time.
WWE was said to be down to the “nitty gritty” on time with the show needing to end at a specific point. They got to their mark, killed the lights, and pulled off the switch with some work, some planning, and a lot of expert timing.
