Riddle used his athleticism to make a comeback in the match. But it was short-lived as Ziggler took him out with a Superkick outside the ring. Ziggler and Robert Roode then taunted Orton by posing as ‘The Viper’. During the commercial break, Ziggler infected more damage to Riddle by taking off his false mustache.

But what happened after the commercial break was absolutely a treat to the eyes. Riddle hit Ziggler with a Powerslam, similar to Orton’s iconic Powerslam move. That was not it. Towards the end, the WWE universe witnessed a typical RK-Bro thing.
