Randy Orton returned to Raw last night and possibly reunited with his RK-Bro tag team partner Riddle.
The future of RK-Bro was left in question after Orton gave Riddle an RKO at the end of last night’s show. Riddle had helped Orton defeat AJ Styles in the main event by trying to neutralize Omos at ringside. Styles went for the Phenomenal Forearm on Orton, but Orton caught him with an RKO out of nowhere to get the win.
Riddle wanted a hug from Orton following the match. After Riddle urged him to listen to the people, Orton gave in and hugged Riddle. But as they were posing, Orton dropped Riddle with an RKO. Orton smiled and chuckled after hitting the move. Byron Saxton said on commentary that he thought Orton and Riddle were now back together.
This was Orton’s first appearance on Raw since June 21. In the opening segment of last night’s show, Orton said that he works better alone and wasn’t interested in teaming with Riddle anymore. He later told Riddle not to accompany him to ringside.
In a post-show interview, Riddle said he was confused by Orton’s actions. Riddle said he hopes he and Orton can work things out so that RK-Bro can be a thing.
