Riddle Comments On Text He Received From Randy Orton & More


During Monday night’s edition of RAW, Riddle successfully defeated Xavier Woods in singles competition. Riddle dedicated the win to his tag-team partner, Randy Orton, even going so far as to do Orton’s signature pose. Riddle would later appear on “RAW Talk” where he commented on a text he received from Orton and how he wanted to redeem himself for the loss to Kofi Kingston last week.

“I wanted to get redemption for Randy,” Riddle said. “I knew he was busy tonight, I heard he was watching Operation Gumbo Drop and eating some munchies. He knows how to take care of his body.”

Riddle disclosed the text he got from Orton after he hit the RKO.

“Randy was like, ‘I saw that, bro.’”

When asked if Orton actually called Riddle “bro,” Riddle said: “If you know Randy like I do, there’s always a pause between his texts. I know he called me bro in his own subtle way.”

Did Riddle seek permission from Orton before hitting an RKO?

“No, I didn’t ask him permission [laughs]. If I made the move look bad, he’d have been pissed. But I made the move look sweet and got the win over a great superstar.”

Riddle went on to reveal he had never tried an RKO before – even in training.

“That was the first time I ever hit an RKO, and it was one of the greatest feelings of my life. It was exhilarating,” Riddle admitted. “If you asked me 10 years ago if I could see myself hitting an RKO on RAW, I would have said, ‘no way, bro.’”

The segment ended with Riddle throwing down the gauntlet to RAW Tag-Team Champions AJ and Omos.

“What do I see in the future for R-K-Bro? We’re going up and up. We’re coming for the championships. AJ and Omos, watch out bros.”
