Randy Orton Defeats AJ Styles for the First-Time Ever, RKO’s Riddle to Close WWE Raw

The team of Matt Riddle and Randy Orton is arguably the best thing on Raw at the moment. However, this week took a shocking turn of events when RK-Bro broke up. No one could have seen this coming, especially Riddle.

At the very beginning of this week’s Raw, Randy Orton was back in the ring. As usual, Riddle was excited to see him and get back together as a tag team. When Orton refused to do so, WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, AJ Styles and Omos made their way into the ring. Things quickly turned sour as all four men started brawling. This led to the main event of Orton vs Styles.

Both AJ and Orton as excellent in the ring and have proven they can work with anyone. This showed in their match as both men gave it their all. The tide of the match kept shifting as both wrestlers are very proficient in their own way. However, the giant Omos was a menacing sight for the Viper. Time and again, Omos’s distraction led to Styles getting the upper hand.

Randy Orton shocks the world

Omos kept getting in the way of Orton, so to even things out, Riddle took matters into his own hand. Riddle came out of nowhere and attacked Omos. The distraction led to Orton countering a Springboard Phenomenal Forearm by AJ into an RKO out of nowhere. Vintage Orton.

The Viper pinned AJ for the win. Following the match, Riddle and Orton shared a heartfelt moment with each other. RK-Bro hugged!! But nothing was as it seemed. The Viper hit one last RKO and this one was for his former partner.
