So, Uh…Randy Orton Set The Fiend On Fire During WWE’s “TLC,” And People Lost Their Darn Minds
“The Fiend’s on some hot girl sh*t.”
Hello readers! I’m Allie, and I’m one of, like, two and a half people who work here at BuzzFeed dot com who unflinchingly, unabashedly, unironically just really freakin’ love professional wrestling. I! Just! Do! It’s! Who! I! Am!
Anyway — as fans will already know — last night was WWE’s final pay-per-view of the year, TLC (standing for “Tables, Ladders, Chairs,” of course). There were some absolutely incredible matches…but one match certainly LIT UP its competitors.
Basically, Randy Orton and The Fiend competed in the first ever “Firefly Inferno Match,” which, yes, is a hilarious name and, yes, is going to sound made up when I try to explain to you what it entailed.*
The positively WILD match ended with Randy hitting the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment (his finisher, the R.K.O. — keep up, will you?) while The Fiend was semi–on fire. It was awesome. But — because that wasn’t enough for Randal Keith Orton — he then proceeded to set the WHOLE DAMN NIGHTMARE MAN* aflame in the middle of the ring, AND. THAT’S. HOW. THE. PAY-PER-VIEW. ENDED.
