Sean Waltman, who was backstage, revealed on his recent podcast that it was actually Cena's idea to put Wyatt over cleanly at Tuesday's event from Anaheim, California.
"I'm not sure what the finish was supposed to be for the match last night. But I know this for a fact, that John Cena insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over again last night, insisted on it. That's not just a rumour."

Wyatt/Orton Storyline Update
It was revealed on this Tuesday's episode of SmackDown! Live that Randy Orton would forfeit his WWE Title match against Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 33 later this year. Daniel Bryan would take to Talking Smack to reveal that there will be a Battle Royal to determine a new Number One Contender for the WWE Title on next week's SmackDown!.
The belief within the WWE is that the company decided to go with this angle in an attempt to help fill the storyline for the next month, with Orton still in the loop for a title match at Wrestlemania. WWE are also weighing up the idea of possibly making the match at Wrestlemania a Wyatt Family Triple Threat match for the title.
