RK-Bro are the new Raw Tag Team Champions.

In the opening match of Saturday night's SummerSlam main card, Randy Orton & Riddle defeated AJ Styles & Omos to win the Raw Tag Team titles. Orton pinned Styles after hitting an RKO. Riddle had taken out Omos by sending him into the ring post prior to the finish. Styles then backflipped off the apron and gave Riddle a reverse DDT on the outside.

Orton & Riddle were interviewed backstage by actor Mario Lopez after their title win. Orton said it'll be smooth sailing for RK-Bro from here on out. When Orton left, Riddle told Lopez that he'll have a surprise for Orton on Monday's Raw.

RK-Bro reunited when Riddle saved Orton from an attack by Styles and Omos on Raw this past Monday. After being saved by him, Orton told Riddle that he's earned his respect.

This is the second title Riddle has held on the main roster. He was previously United States Champion. During his time in NXT, Riddle held the NXT Tag Team titles with Pete Dunne.

It's the first time Orton has been a tag team champion since he was part of The Wyatt Family in 2016.

Styles & Omos had been Raw Tag Team Champions since winning the titles from The New Day's Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods at WrestleMania 37 this April.
