Matt Riddle and Randy Orton’s oddball tag team remains one of the highlights of Monday Night RAW. Matt Riddle also promised fans that RKBro scooters will be coming as well. It seems they weren’t supposed to be together for so long.

At the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view, Matt Riddle and Randy Orton challenged AJ Styles and Omos for the RAW Tag Team Championships. Team RK-Bro ended up winning the match and became the new champions.

While speaking to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Matt Riddle talked about his current tag team with Randy Orton. Riddle mentioned how he pitched the idea of RKBro to everyone backstage and how the team was supposed to be short-lived.

“It’s crazy, you think about how it started it’s just like, how funny would it be if we’re RK-Bro and then we do it and the story and that’s the thing with wrestling. You can pitch it, but you never know who is going to be the next big thing or what’s going to attract a mass audience. RK-Bro started getting legs and taking off, it wasn’t supposed to last this long, at all. Randy was supposed to beat me up, probably, but the people loved it so much and they just went with it.”


We will have to wait and see how Team RKBro’s title reign will be booked in the coming months as there is certainly a lot of momentum behind the two right now. A lot of fans are obviously happy that WWE didn’t nix the team so soon.
