RK-Bro is a professional wrestling tag team composed of Randy Orton and Riddle. They are signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and perform on the Raw brand where they are former WWE Raw Tag Team Champions.

History

Formation (2021)

On the April 19, 2021 episode of Raw, Riddle would interrupt a backstage interview by Orton where Riddle suggested a tag team formation, with Orton dismissing the idea by leaving. A match was made later on in the night between Orton and Riddle, which Riddle won with a roll-up. The following week on Raw, Orton was backstage with Riddle when he suggested the team be given a try. Later on, the newly labeled RK-Bro defeated Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. In a backstage interview afterwards, Orton suggested to Riddle they take the team "a day at a time", thus turning Orton face for the first time since early 2020.

On the May 3 episode of Raw, Orton and Riddle defeated Elias and Jaxson Ryker; this brought RK-Bro's record to 2–0. On the May 10 episode of Raw, RK-Bro teamed up with The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) to defeat AJ Styles, Omos, Elias, and Ryker in an eight-man tag team match, increasing RK-Bro's record to 3–0. On the June 21 episode of Raw, Orton faced John Morrison in a Money in the Bank qualifying match, but was defeated. The following week, Orton was scheduled to face AJ Styles and Drew McIntyre in a last chance match, but for unknown reasons was pulled and replaced by Riddle who would go on to lose the match for Orton.

Raw Tag Team Champions (2021–2022)

After a seven week absence, Orton returned on the August 9 episode of Raw, where he initially discontinued his team with Riddle. Later that night, Orton defeated AJ Styles in a match following assistance from Riddle and afterwards pretended to hug him, however, Orton attacked Riddle with an RKO, which was not construed as a heel turn but rather as Orton's unique way of showing gratitude. The following week, Orton officially reunited the team after Riddle saved him from an attack at the hands of Omos and Styles. At SummerSlam, RK-Bro defeated Styles and Omos to win their first WWE Raw Tag Team Championship, both individually and as a team. On August 30 edition of Raw they successfully defended title against Bobby Lashley and MVP of The Hurt Business.
