Riddle had good momentum in the match until Otis tagged in. With Otis’s involvement, Riddle got fewer chances to land a blow on him and was on the back foot.

Later, Randy Orton tagged in and began dominating Gable. However, Otis tagged Gable in the match and slammed Orton to win the Raw tag team titles.

Can Randy Orton and Riddle get their tag team titles back?

Last year, RK-Bro won the Raw tag team titles at SummerSlam 2021 after they beat Omos and AJ Styles. Both men held the gold for a long time and made many title defenses. As of now, Orton and Riddle have lost their tag team titles and could get an immediate rematch.

The duo shares a different bond in the tag team roster. Knowing that, the current champs, Alpha Academy, will try to play mind games to retain the Raw Tag Team Titles.

Although both men have lost their titles, they could still grab a chance for a singles title shot. It could be the catalyst to hand either Riddle or Orton a credible chance at the upcoming Royal Rumble match. We could also see RK-Bro officially turn on each other in this match, especially as they aren’t the tag champions on the red brand.
