Randy Orton reveals what match changed his oponion on Cinematic matches . The Viper’s thoughts on the format did a 180 after a certain match.
Randy Orton is a straight shooter. The Viper does not hesitate to speak his mind and he was at it once again during his appearance on the the Kurt Angle Show. Conrad Thompson asked him what his thoughts on the cinematic matches were and Orton admitted not liking it before.
The Viper told Conrad that he wasn’t keen on the format and would probably have blasted it if the question was asked two years ago. However, one match in particular changed his mind and he doesn’t have the same opinion anymore he once had.
Randy Orton reveals what match changed his oponion on Cinematic matches
“If you would ask me that same question a year or two ago, I would have sh** all over the whole cinematic matches thing. I remember, I guess, ‘Mania 36, watching Cena versus Bray.
“I thought that was brilliant, I don’t know if this has come out in an interview or anything, but I think Bruce Prichard and John Cena were up at the warehouse in Connecticut and they were walking around just trying to think of how they were going to do this and how they were going to make it different.”
Orton also added that the match was awesome due to how unique it was.
In another interview, Cena revealed that the WWE had no idea what a Firefly Funhouse match was when it was pitched to him.
While speaking with Den of Geek, Cena said:
“The Funhouse match was something I hold very close to me and maybe that’s another 45-minute interview for another day because that was kind of thrown in my lap at the last minute. And I remember specifically asking what a Firefly Funhouse match was. And the answer was literally, “We don’t know.” And in most performers that would cause panic, but I was just riveted by the open field that we could possibly create something special.
“Like you said, it took a lot of brave folks and a lot of hard work to make something that hopefully the audience understood. And at least if it reached one, we reached you and that’s good. And I’m sure in your critical television articles, I’ve been on the wrong end of an ass-kicking many times from you and that I totally understand. But I’m glad we at least got something you enjoy,”
