Chad Gable and Otis are the new Raw Tag Team Champions.
The Alpha Academy defeated RK-Bro (Randy Orton and Riddle) to win the titles tonight on Raw. The finish had Orton dodging a charge from Gable, who in the process was able to tag in Otis. Gable blocked an RKO attempt and shoved Orton into Otis, who then pinned Orton with a forward slam to win the match and the titles for his team.
Orton and Riddle had held the Raw Tag Team titles for over 140 days, defeating AJ Styles and Omos at SummerSlam back on August 21 of last year. The two had just successfully defended the titles at Day 1 back on January 1, defeating The Street Profits.
Alpha Academy on last week’s Raw defeated RK-Bro in a non-title match. In that match, Otis pinned Riddle after Riddle had attempted an RKO. The story prior to tonight’s match was Orton telling Riddle to tag him in when he was in trouble, going as far as scribbling it down on Riddle’s hands.
