Riddle Extremely Concerned About Splitting With Randy Orton as WWE Draft Approaches

Ever since WWE started with the concept of ‘WWE Draft’; the WWE Universe has witnessed multiple tag teams splitting up to work with different brands. Last year, Big E was separated from the rest of The New Day. It is a simple process when WWE refreshes its rosters between the Raw and SmackDown brands.

The current WWE Raw tag team champion, Matt Riddle, is worried about the upcoming WWE Draft. Riddle took to Twitter and wrote that he is worried that Orton will end up with SmackDown.

“They wouldn’t split up me and my best bud Randy… right?”

What if Randy Orton moves to SmackDown because of the WWE Draft?

Orton is enjoying his tag team run with his partner Matt Riddle and is currently on the top of the Raw Tag Team division. However, what if the Viper is compelled to move to the Blue Brand?

This could do well for Orton, as he can again focus on the major Championships of this company. With the WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns in SmackDown, it can be intriguing.

Orton’s last run as the WWE Champion was a forgettable one, and the WWE Universe would love to see Orton back in one-on-one matchups with the superstars.
