Following the entrances, Riddle and Jimmy started the match, but seconds later, the latter tagged Jey in.

Riddle tagged Orton in after slamming Jey down. Randy went for an early RKO, but Jey blocked his attempt and he went outside the ring.

As the match progressed, the scales kept tipping back and forth. At times, the Usos dominated and on other occasions, RK-Bro showed the Bloodline why they’re champions.

There came a point where The Usos were hitting Riddle and he couldn’t tag Randy in. Just as he was about to after kicking Jey Uso’s head, Jimmy was tagged in and broke up the momentum.

However, Matt kept going for the tag, but was far from Orton, because the brothers kept pulling him back.

Riddle eventually fought back, and he dropped Jimmy onto his thigh. Jey and Orton extended their hands out so that their partner could tag them.

Then Orton and Jey become the legal men and the Apex Predator dropped one-half of SmackDown tag team champions with power slams.

They both hashed it out outside the ring and RK-Bro had the upper hand in the match.
