WWE's Twitter account announced on Wednesday that at No Mercy, Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will battle in a one-on-one contest.
Wyatt and Orton first crossed paths - literally - the week before SummerSlam, when "The Eater of Worlds" exchanged a glance with "The Viper" as they passed each other on the entrance ramp. Following Orton's beating at the hands of Lesnar, Wyatt continued the feud by interrupting his promo on the next episode of Smackdown.
A match was signed for Backlash, but Randy Orton wasn't cleared from a concussion that he suffered at SummerSlam. Nevertheless, WWE continued to advertise him for the show, only writing him out with a leg injury at the PPV itself. Wyatt would go on to battle Kane at Backlash, losing when Orton interfered on Kane's behalf.
Since then, the feud has continued, getting progressively more repetitive and nonsensical. Both men have cut poorly scripted (and at time, poorly delivered) promos on one another, leading to this past week, when Orton spent several segments trying to track Wyatt down through a backstage labyrinth.
No Mercy airs live on the WWE Network on October 9 at 8:00 PM ET.
