WWE has been hyping up a “House of Horrors” showdown between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt for Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view. Coming into the show, no one really knew what to expect from the match. Would they have to fight through an actual house, forcing the live audience to awkwardly sit through a bunch of pre-tape before they magically appeared in the ring? Would they wrestle with Halloween props in Sin Cara’s old strip club lighting, but spookier? Turns out it was … well, it was something.
The match already starts off with two pretty ridiculous opponents. One is a third-generation professional wrestler who experiences unchecked auditory hallucinations and thinks he’s a viper despite having baby teeth instead of fangs, and charges up his viper powers by slamming his fists into the mat. Snakes don’t even have arms; why is no one concerned about his mental health after all these years?
The other is a demon who inhabited the shell of Husky Harris after the first punted him in the head, made him buy a house in the country, start a cult full of dudes who eschew personal hygiene, and then pair his trilby with white guy dreads. I dunno, I feel like if I had demon powers I’d probably try to use them for a little more than turning myself into a meninist forum mod, but I digress. Here are the silliest, strangest, most noteworthy highlights of Final Deletion 2: Back Country Boogaloo.
