Randy Orton got an unexpected shock last week when he went to the ring and was confronted by Alexa Bliss, who summoned her otherworldly magic and pulled a Street Fighter move by sending a fireball at Orton’s face. It knocked him down in the moment but since then the fireball has left Orton’s face in quite a state, as tonight on Raw things opened up with a lengthy promo from Orton, showing his new mask that is covering the majority of his face and the substantial burns.
You can check out the newly masked Norton below, and there’s no telling how long he’ll be wearing it, but regardless of the mask and the burns he said nothing is stopping him from winning this year’s Royal Rumble match, and he is still gunning for The Fiend.

Orton said he doesn’t blame Bliss for the act, but The Fiend, who he « killed » b setting fire to him all those weeks back.
“There’s a saying that those who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes … ashes of the one responsible for their affliction.”
