VIDEO: Randy Orton Takes His Revenge by Stealing Matt Riddle’s Signature Move on WWE Raw

Published 06/01/2021, 12:40 AM EDT


There are a couple of things upcoming talents should keep in mind – respect the veteran wrestlers, and never steal their finishing moves. As it turns out, Matt Riddle got away with doing just that. In an ironic twist of fate, the ‘Original Bro’ wasn’t original at all on last week’s Raw. Riddle stole his RK-Bro tag team partner’s finisher, the RKO, to put Xavier Woods out of commission.

Randy had a word with Riddle after the match. But instead of berating him, Randy offered Riddle to stay ringside and learn a thing or two from ‘The Viper‘ himself. Riddle could not be overjoyed and jumped on the offer.

Randy Orton copied his partner

Last night’s RAW saw Orton pick up a crushing victory over Xavier Woods. But the win is not the talking point of the match; instead, how Orton won is the main attraction.

In the closing moments of the match, Orton stunned everybody when he proceeded to finish off Woods using Riddle’s finisher. See for yourself in the tweet below.

The most ecstatic person in the entire arena was ‘The Original Bro’ who shadowed Randy as he delivered the finisher.

We are truly witnessing a special bond between the two wrestlers that is taking over WWE. The chemistry and comic timing between them is flawless and the fans hope the duo stays together for long.
