    The Grapevine (4/14/21): Backstage News On Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt, Sheamus and Riddle

    Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton at WWE WrestleMania 37


    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Direction for Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt changed last-minute

    The plans for the Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton feud were originally much different. The Fiend was apparently supposed to win and write Orton off television for a time, but before WrestleMania weekend they were also not given any hints on how the feud was supposed to end. Bruce Prichard and Vince McMahon came up with the finish we all saw at WrestleMania and were reportedly happy about how it went down, although people involved were said to be confused. The talent reportedly also wanted the Fiend to win. (Source: Fightful Select)

    We say: Well, this story is starting to become a little confusing, but one thing is clear—while Bray Wyatt is in control of the Fiend character, he's obviously not in control of this story the same way Paul Heyman is able to be a filter for anything involving Roman Reigns, and Prichard and Vince have once again ruined a story. A one-man or two-man creative show just won't be consistent.

    Why Sheamus won the United States Championship

    Sheamus won the United States Championship at WrestleMania because Riddle was originally not supposed to win the title at Elimination Chamber. Keith Lee was originally slated to win the title at the PPV, but ended up being pulled from the card for reasons still unknown. Sheamus winning the title was WWE reportedly "correcting" this decision. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)

    We say: That makes sense. Is his beatdown at Lashley's hands on RAW also them correcting anything?
