Randy Orton took to Instagram to apologize to fans who attended WrestleMania 35 for being blinded by a stage light during his match with AJ Styles. Orton acknowledged the lighting issue and wrote: “I would like to apologize on behalf of @WWE for screwing up and shining a bright light in your eyes for 95% of our match. You missed a really great f**king match.”
Powell’s POV: The live crowd let the company know they were unhappy and it’s too bad that they weren’t quicker to respond. Good for Orton for basically calling out the company and apologizing for something out of his control, as I doubt the company will issue any sort of apology of their own.
