What an odd pairing. There are so many people in WWE that the company has to come up with a few different ways to present all of the wrestlers. One of the best ways is to put multiple wrestlers together at the same time, often as a tag team. WWE is doing that again with a pair on Monday Night Raw, and it seems that we are going to be seeing them for a bit longer than expected.
Last week on Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton and Riddle teamed up as RKBro to defeat Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander. This week, they defeated Jaxson Ryker and Elias. According to PWInsider.com, the team will be staying together going forward, with WWE currently planning merchandise for the two of them. There is no word on how long the team will be together or what the end goal for the story will be.
Orton and Riddle have been presented as an oddball team with the two of them not seeing things the same way. Riddle wants the two to have matching gear, including snakeskin Speedos, while Orton sees it more as a situation where the two happen to succeed together despite being different. Orton has had success as a tag team wrestler before, winning Tag Team Titles as part of the Wyatt Family and Rated-RKO.
Opinion: The more I see of these two together, the more I like them. They are both very talented people and it would be nice to see them doing some more together. Hopefully they are able to have a nice run rather than just having the team last three or four weeks before the expected split. I could go with Riddle turning on Orton for a surprise too, though I’d be almost stunned if that winds up happening.
What do you think of the team? How will the story end? Let us know in the comments below.
