With odd teams, Mick Foley was part of perhaps the most iconic odd team of all time. The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection was the most entertaining team in the Attitude Era and won the Tag Team Championships thrice.

Foley took to Twitter to praise WWE’s latest odd team, and perhaps the best part of WWE Raw right now. With T-Bar and Mace involved in a WWE Title feud and the Women’s Title scene a colossal mess, Orton and Riddle are Raw’s saving grace.

Foley’s endorsement might provide a boost to Team RK-Bro’s popularity and maybe even a shot at the Raw Tag Team Championships. Right now, Raw has a bunch of teams that are equally entertaining and can revive the Raw tag division.

If they play their cards right, Orton and Riddle can be the #1 contender’s for AJ Styles and Omos‘ titles. After they dismissed the New Day on Raw, they need a fresh set of opponents. Let’s not forget the interactions between Riddle, Styles, and Omos will be absolutely hilarious.

Orton and Riddle remain undefeated

After teaming up for the first time last week and beating Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander, RK-Bro is ready to take on the Raw tag division. On WWE Raw, Orton and Riddle beat the team of Elias and Jaxon Ryker. This boosts them up the ranks in the tag team division and keeps them in contention for the titles.

On the same night as Styles and Omos’ win over the New Day, Orton and Riddle are poised to face them for the titles sometime in the future. A match at WrestleMania Backlash might be WWE jumping the gun, but they are a potential challenger for the champions.

Right now, the Viking Raiders, RK-Bro and the tag team champions are the only teams undefeated on Raw. A triple threat would be a cracking match down the line.

But for now, RK-Bro needs to cement themselves as a babyface team. Feeding them heel teams like Elias and Ryker would only boost their profile and do them a world of good.
