WWE Rumors and Spoilers 2021 stated that WWE currently planning Randy Orton vs. The Fiend match with the stipulation of the Firefly Funhouse Match for Royal Rumble 2021. This thing is inevitable after seeing the ending of Firefly Inferno match at TLC 2020 pay per view. If WWE goes with this plan then this could be the only second Firefly Funhouse match in WWE history after John Cena vs The Fiend Bray Wyatt match at Wrestlemania 36.
After saw The Fiend burned in the middle of the WWE ring, fans speculated that he might be away from WWE actions for quite some time. But if WWE’s Latest News and Rumors are true then we could see Bray Wyatt or The Fiend very soon.
Last week on the RAW episode, the show ended in a very cryptic manner. We saw Alexa Bliss provoke Randy Orton to set lit her on fire. She put gasoline all over her body and gives a matchbox to Randy Orton. Then the light came off and we saw Randy Orton with a lit match on his hand and RAW went off the air.
WWE Reports: WWE planning major stipulation match between Randy Orton and The Fiend for Royal Rumble 2021
So maybe the time comes when The Fiend finally shows up after burned at the TLC show. Maybe first we saw the return of the Firefly Funhouse version of Bray Wyatt and he challenges Randy Orton for the Firefly Funhouse match against The Fiend at Royal Rumble 2021.
The last Firefly Funhouse match gets mixed reactions from fans. Fans actually idea of that match but were disappointed because of less wrestling in the match. It takes time to understand the concept of that match and they are in dilemma about how to react after seeing that match at Wrestlemania 36. Hope that WWE tries to neglect previous mistakes and show us a different kind of match than the previous one.
This is the top WWE breaking news from WWE Rumors Roundup: Orton vs Fiend interesting match stipulation, Vince McMahon’s own arena for WWE RAW, and more.
#5 WWE Rumors: Vince McMahon thought about own arena for WWE RAW
WWE chairman Vince McMahon once thought about building his own arena in the early days of WWE RAW. In a recent interview, WWE’s executive Bruce Pritchard said that Vince McMahon once considered buying a building and transforming it into an arena, and making its permanent home for WWE RAW.
Here are Bruce Pritchard’s words:
“The original concept behind doing Raw was to do a live weekly show to build a small studio arena in Stamford and the concept was to save money by doing that. To tour and then come back to Stamford on Monday and have that studio that we owned. A little arena that we owned, that we could control and ‘this is going to save money, this is going to be revolutionary that we’re not going to go rent a building.”
Vince McMahon eventually created his own ‘arena’ in the form of WWE Thunderdome
“Flip that to several weeks later and we’re in the Manhattan Center, one of the most expensive pieces of property in the country, and we are just like, ‘holy cow this became a big production.”
To save money in the early days of WWE RAW was make sense at that time. Because of that, Vince McMahon considered making his own arena for WWE Raw. Then 2020, the situation forced into creating something different, and WWE revealed WWE ThunderDome. WWE ThunderDome served us the virtual experience of WWE shows in the pandemic era.

#3 WWE Spoilers: few WWE superstars reject new WWE offers
It’s fact that WWE always looking to tie their superstar down with long-term contracts. WWE’s latest updates in 2021 suggested several WWE superstar’s contracts and what we can expect in 2021. Many mid-2020 WWE contract offers marked as disappointing as compared to 2019.
In 2020, COVID pandemic time changed everything in WWE. The company already released so many superstars due to the budget cut of a pandemic. So new WWE contracts have not met the same standard as 2019 WWE contracts. So nearly half a dozen WWE superstars do not agree with the new WWE contract.
Several WWE Superstars reportedly reject new contract offers
WWE superstars are waiting for the situation to get better and then signed the new deal with the WWE. It’s a good thing that WWE also allowed their superstars to wait for a better situation. Name of those WWE superstars who do not agree with new deals are not revealed yet but it would be revealed soon.
