This week on RAW, AJ Styles took on Matt Riddle with Omos at ringside.

It all started when Randy came out to the ring and declared that he needed nobody by his side to win matches. The 14-time champion vowed to prove the same later that night against the WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Omos.

Matt still hasn’t given up on RK-Bro! As Riddle couldn’t bear to hear his bro talking in such a way, he made his way into the ring. He felt that when Orton was gone, he was doing the RKO in honor of him and their friendship.

Hence, last week, Riddle felt Orton was just trying to show him how to hit the RKO properly. And now that he has learned his lesson, Riddle felt they should give it another chance.

“I think we all know the answer to that question. How about: RK-NO! Listen, Randy, I don’t give a hoot why you RKO’d Riddle. In fact, I think you should RKO him again! And then, while you’re at it, why don’t you RKO yourself! You didn’t prove anything last week Randy. The only reason you ‘won’ that match was because of that bonehead Riddle interfering.

“Well, that won’t save you later tonight when you get de-fanged by my own personal colossus Omos. But why should I let Omos have all the fun? I am so sick and tired of listening to the two of you arguing about whether you’re still BFFs. So, I think it’s time I shut you up for good, Riddle. You and me, in that ring, right now.”
