NXT Superstar Pete Dunne Warns Randy Orton About His Partner Matt Riddle

Published 05/04/2021, 8:15 AM EDT


Following last night’s RAW, Randy Orton and Matt Riddle are officially a tag team. The uncanny pairing goes by the name of “RK-Bro”. All is well and fair, but Pete Dunne, a former tag team partner of Riddle, warned Orton of impending doom.

Following RAW, Pete took to Twitter and told Orton to swiftly getaway “before it’s too late.” Fans can recall how last year “The Bruiserweight” and “Original Bro” formed the unlikely tag team of The BroserWeights just ahead of the 2020 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

The warning was accompanied by a throwback picture of when Riddle and Dunne entered the arena in a golf cart following their win at the tag team tournament.

In the picture, Dunne does not look too happy in the golf cart, accompanying an overjoyed and overenthusiastic Riddle. This is similar to Orton and Riddle’s current equation on RAW.

Riddle and Pete Dunne were NXT Tag Team Champions

As they won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament, Riddle and Dunne got a Tag Team title opportunity. The BroserWeights defeated Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly of The Undisputed Era for the NXT Tag Team Championship at NXT TakeOver.

However, their tag team was short-lived. The duo had a successful title defense but after that, Dunne was stuck in the UK because of the COVID-19 related travel restrictions.

In the former NXT UK Champion’s absence, Riddle teamed up with Timothy Thatcher to defend the titles. But soon, Thatcher walked out on Riddle during a title defense, and the latter lost the titles to Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel of Imperium.

After this, Riddle moved to the main roster and later became the United States Champion. Dunne, on the other hand, returned to NXT in December and joined Pete McAfee’s heel stable, “Kings of NXT.”

Coming back to RK-Bro, the tag team faced Jaxon Ryker and Elias last night on RAW. Riddle used a Floating Bro on Elias to get the pin, with massive assistance from Orton.

It is unclear why or what Dunne is warning Orton off. ‘The Viper’ seems to be content with his tag team. In the future, RK-Bro might contest the tag team titles as well.
