WWE Fastlane 2021: 5 Big questions heading into Alexa Bliss vs. Randy Orton


Out of all the scheduled matches at the 2021 Fastlane pay-per-view, Alexa Bliss and Randy Orton’s intergender match has the most intrigue behind it. There are various finishes to this particular bout. But whenever it comes to Orton, Bliss, and The Fiend’s saga, WWE has swerved their fanbase on more than one occasion.

Orton immolated The Fiend at WWE TLC 2020 during their Firefly Inferno match. Since then, Bliss has carried forward this saga with The Viper on WWE RAW. Bliss has tormented Orton every week, and their mind games will be showcased during this Sunday’s Fastlane pay-per-view.

Let’s take a look at five big questions heading into Alexa Bliss and Randy Orton’s intergender clash at WWE Fastlane 2021.

#5 Could a few cinematic elements be incorporated into Alexa Bliss vs. Randy Orton at WWE Fastlane?

WWE has significantly evolved over the past few decades. In today’s world, it’s a very tricky proposition to feature man-on-woman violence in a PG environment, even in a fictional context.

Perhaps to reduce the physical aspects of Alexa Bliss and Randy Orton’s bout at Fastlane, could WWE add a few cinematic elements to their “match”?

This might be a likely outcome given that the entire storyline has frequently blurred the lines between cinema and professional wrestling. After all that Bliss has done to Orton through her “magical tricks,” a normal match at Fastlane would be a step down from the bizarre aspects of their storyline.

If WWE decides to make this a cinematic match, the creative possibilities will be endless. Could Bliss vs. Orton be the intergender equivalent of Bray Wyatt and John Cena‘s groundbreaking Firefly Fun House match?

The Viper has a controversial past in both reel and real life. Perhaps Orton’s infamous history could be explored in a cinematic clash. As always, a heavy dose of Easter eggs and subtle references will surely keep the conversation engaging for a considerable amount of time.
