That’s one way to go. We are less than two weeks away from Summerslam and that means WWE should have everything set in stone for the show. There are still some details to announce for the event though and some of those have started to come together. One of the more interesting stories might have gotten some more attention on this week’s Monday Night Raw and now we might know where it is going.

Randy Orton returned to WWE television during this week’s Monday Night Raw after a seven week absence. Orton would defeat AJ Styles and then lay out occasional partner Riddle with an RKO to end the show. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the current plan for Summerslam will still see Orton and Riddle challenge AJ Styles and Omos for the Raw Tag Team Titles. Commentary suggested that Riddle and Orton were not done as a team after Orton hit the RKO.

They do have a chemistry. Check out Orton and Riddle’s work together:

Randy Orton returns with sights set on AJ Styles: Raw, Aug. 9, 2021

Riddle wants to form Team R-K-Bro with Randy Orton: Raw, April 19, 2021

RK-Bro’s greatest moments: WWE Top 10, July 4, 2021

Opinion: This actually makes some sense as Riddle really is the kind of person who would take a beating from Orton and write it off. Maybe that’s Riddle not being so bright, but I really do hope that we wind up getting the RKBro Tag Team Title reign. The two of them have such a weird chemistry together and I would love to see them go on even longer before the likely eventual split.

Will the title match still take place? Should the team split up? Let us know in the comments below.
