Sunday night, WWE presented their second night of WrestleMania 37, featuring a three-man main event in which Roman Reigns retained his Universal Title.
The show had plenty of interesting moments, including an opening match between Bray ‘The Fiend’ Wyatt and Randy Orton that has been in the works for months.
The feud between these two has been in progress for what seems like forever. Three months ago, Orton ‘set fire’ to Wyatt at the end of a match and sent him off TV for awhile.
Finally Sunday the two were back inside a ring again, this time for a rather bizarre ‘wrestling’ match that many felt should have had a special stipulation to it.
Though the match was not the main event, Orton still went all out to have his wife and children at the event.
After it was over, Orton tweeted out the amount that he paid for his family to be able to watch him beat Wyatt.
WM. Historic. One of a kind, only here at #wwe you can see the spectacle! Also, I was charged 20 thousand dollars for my family (wife and 5 kids) to watch dad rassle fight a demon…. and WIN!

According to reports, since only 25,000 fans were allowed in Raymond James Stadium, comped tickets for friends and family of talent were also “severely limited or eliminated altogether.”
Orton evidently didn’t care what it cost, but there’s a reason for that. The longtime WWE veteran isn’t exactly crying poor. Orton made a reported $4.5 million last year alone.
