March 27 (UPI) -- Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt are set to collide at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship in a match that Orton says he will win.

"I got to doing this thing with the Wyatt Family and I don't remember having this much fun in the ring in a long time," The Viper said of his time spent teaming up with Wyatt while speaking to IGN.

"Messing with them. The mind games. The promos. Tagging with Bray. Tagging with Luke. And being a part of the Wyatt Family threw me back into that heel element that I love so much and had missed for a very long time," he continued.

"We're going into WrestleMania and it's been two years for me and I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to bringing the kids, all five children, and their going to watch their father whip Bray Wyatt's [expletive]."

Orton and Wyatt dominated Smackdown Live for months as a team having won the Smackdown Tag Team Championships and having helped the blue brand defeat Raw at Survivor Series.

The pair were sent down a collision course after Orton won the Royal Rumble and became the number one contender for the WWE Championship which Wyatt obtained at Elimination Chamber.

"A lot of the relationship between me and Randy is undocumented," says Wyatt in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

"The people only know what they've seen from small television segments. The real story behind me and Randy is that we were a cohesive unit. We both knew that and respected that, and we were even closer behind the scenes. We were a dominant force in the back and out in the arenas," The Eater of Worlds continued.

"People recognized, from both brands, that Randy and I were the omega of WWE. It's baffling to me that he would choose to stab me in the back and ruin everything because it was a quite a dangerous tandem we had built."

WrestleMania takes place in Orlando on April 2. WWE's biggest event of the year will also feature Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker, a couple's match between John Cena & Nikki Bella against The Miz & Maryse, Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles and Goldberg defending Raw' Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar.

"If I were Goldberg or Brock Lesnar, I wouldn't want to have to go on after me and Randy," Wyatt said of how his match with Orton will outperform the final match of the night. "From their standpoint, I wouldn't want to be them and have to go on after us."
