Last night’s episode of RAW saw Riddle and Randy Orton compete for the first time ever as a team when they went up against the team of Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander as R-K-Bro and came out of the match with the victory. After Monday Night RAW went off the air, Riddle appeared on RAW Talk and said that nobody thought this partnership with Orton was going to happen, especially after he beat the WWE legend in the center of the ring last week.
Riddle also said since Randy Orton is a Viper, he was a little worried that Orton was setting him up, and when Orton approached him backstage, he was actually expecting a confrontation, but the fact that Orton made plans for them, and even booked them in a tag team match, its the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Riddle said, “Bro….. R-K-Bro.” “Nobody thought it [this partnership] was going to happen, especially after I beat Randy in the center of the ring last week. I think he had a week to think about my offer from last week [to be partners]. In fact, on April 20, he sent me a tweet about R-K-Bro and said he actually liked the name.”
“But, since he’s a Viper, I was a little worried that he was setting me up. When he approached me backstage tonight, I was actually expecting a confrontation. But the fact that he made plans for us, and even booked us to a match… he just knows how to warm a bro’s heart. This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Riddle then talked about their victory over Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander and said on RAW, he and Randall went in there as a duo and he wanted to show Orton that he got this. Riddle then said R-K-Bro are going to be champions one day.
Riddle said, “Tonight, me and Randall went in there was a duo.” “I wanted to show him that I got this. Randy said he wants to take this partnership one day at a time… maybe I’ll just face time him every day for the next 30 days to try and get to know him. I’m gonna tell him, ‘you’ve got to let this thing marinate.’ RK Bro are going to be champions one day.”
