WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has recently blogged his thoughts about the feud growing between SmackDown LIVE duo Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt.
In the wake of the WWE Draft, you would look at Orton and Wyatt and see them as two of the biggest names on the blue brand, alongside the likes of John Cena, Dean Ambrose, and AJ Styles.
With the trio mentioned all vying for the WWE Championship, it makes sense to have the next biggest names feuding with each other as an under-card.

Wyatt and Orton both carry years of experience, and both come from families that know the industry well, and although their gimmicks are met with good responses, good ol' JR believes a change is needed.
Whilst writing in his blog, JR was fairly critical of the storyline and feud so far, saying he's not interested in the 'hocus pocus' following the two.
Since the rivalry began, there has been a lot of backstage segments involving the two, with several of the promos being rather weird and bizarre.
Although you'd expect that given Wyatt's gimmick, it doesn't seem to be working on JR, and he also believes there is another fundamental problem with the storyline.
He said: “Not sold on all the hocus pocus that’s intertwined in the Bray Wyatt-Randy Orton storyline but I’m willing to allow it to evolve because I’m a fan of both talents."
Ross continued by saying how he feels Orton is better off being a heel, whilst Wyatt could be better as a face.
"I honestly think that Orton is more effective/comfortable as a villain and I’ve long said that Bray Wyatt has the potential to be a big time, character ‘face.”
Orton is known to switch between being a heel and a face, whilst Wyatt has only been a heel during his time with the company, but switching him to a face could give him the push his character needs.
