RK-Bro are back together!
After a saga worthy of any soap opera, anywhere in the world, Randy Orton and Riddle are back on the same page and back in search of tag team gold.
Following his return to WWE, the August 9th episode of RAW went off the air with Randy Orton delivering an RKO to Riddle. All the way through the show Riddle had been trying to get Orton to re-join him, but his efforts were all in vein.
Fast forward seven days and Orton opened the show once more, but he was quickly joined in the ring by Riddle. The former United States Champion said that he understood that Orton was only trying to teach him how to hit an RKO properly by leaving him laying last week.
The pair were then interrupted by AJ Styles and Omos, which led to a match between Riddle and Styles. While Styles was eventually victorious, the real story was Orton leaving Riddle to fend for himself.
Later on in the show, Orton went one-on-one with Omos. After Styles interfered the referee called for the bell and the disqualification. With the RAW Tag Team Champions going to work on Orton, Riddle ran in to make the save. Orton grabbed a mic and said that respect needed to be earned, and… Riddle had done just that. RK-Bro was officially back together!
A hyped up Riddle then grabbed a mic of his own to lay down the challenge for the Tag Team Champions at SummerSlam.
