New Raw Tag Team Champions Crowned

Raw Tag Team Champions Alpha Academy

After defeating RK-Bro last week and earning a championship match, Alpha Academy were victorious once again and are the new Raw Tag Team Champions.

Chad Gable and Otis have been seeking the Raw Tag Team Championships for weeks, and finally got their chance to challenge RK-Bro in a title match on the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw.

The miscommunication between Randy Orton and Riddle has been building for weeks as Riddle has taken losses after not following the advice of his partner. Before tonight’s title defense, Randy made it clear that Riddle should tag him into the match at any point if he didn’t know what to do.

The match saw Riddle taking the majority of the punishment with Alpha Academy cutting off all attempts to tag in his partner. The crowd erupted when Randy Orton was finally successful in making the hot tag and deliver a flurry of offense including a top rope suplex to Gable.

However, in the end, Randy Orton was the one to succumb to a powerslam from Otis and be pinned to lose the championships for his team despite him blaming Riddle for their losses in recent weeks.

RK-Bro are no strangers to miscommunication as it took a long time for their team to form, but despite not always being on the same page, the pair had reigned as Raw Tag Team Champions since defeating AJ Styles and Omos at SummerSlam in August.
