Randy Orton delivered an unusual surprise for his fans in the latest episode of Raw. The wrestler went into the ring as a part of a newly formed tag team. The team which has been named “RK-Bro,” comprises Orton and Matt Riddle.

The pair had their first match on this week’s RAW (04/27/21) and tasted their first victory in the very first match. During a post-match interview, Riddle and Orton clarified the RK-Bro situation.

While statements from both the wrestlers indicate that they might be a team, their approach is different. Matt Riddle was exhilarated about the partnership. The victory brought forth a flush of positivity in the former WWE United States Champion.

RK Bro will not only continue, we will succeed, and we will take over the future,” Riddle exclaimed. “I’m not just talking the Raw tag title, I’m talking all the tag titles. I’m talking SmackDown tag title. We will even go to NXT and win those titles.”

Orton, however, stepped in to interfere and cut the excitement of Riddle short. As Riddle said he doesn’t see the snake in Viper‘s eyes, Orton cut off his statement and advised him to proceed, “One day at a time!”

Riddle was visibly upset as his warm aura met with Orton’s cold attitude. He promised to stay in touch, “I get it. I’ll text you, bro. We’ll be in touch.”

Randy Orton did not welcome the thought of established communication. Keeping his calm, he “begged” Riddle not to call.

However, Riddle is hopeful RK-Bro will continue to exist forever. From Tag Titles everywhere, to “snake-skin speedos everywhere,” Riddle aimed to “take over the world, and the tag team division, and the WWE Universe. RK-Bro is here to stay, and it’s forever.”

How did Randy Orton and Riddle form RK-Bro?

Last week, Randy Orton faced an upset when Riddle defeated him. Orton admitted he wanted to teach a lesson about respect to Riddle. However, things ended up on a different note as Riddle earned his respect.

Randy Orton accepted half-heartedly that it was Riddle’s idea to name the team RK Bro. Interestingly, Orton found it catchy.

Although the duo has nothing in common, Orton went ahead and partnered him for the tag team match with former Hurt Business members Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander.
