During the latest episode of WWE RAW, Riddle appeared on a special episode of Miz TV. Among other highlights, The A-Lister surprised many fans when he claimed that Randy Orton’s career was over.
RK-Bro previously lost the Tag Team Championship Unification Match against The Usos. After the bout, The Bloodline beat them down, and Orton hasn’t been seen since. The commentary team has stated that he has been seeing neurosurgeons during his time away.
In recent weeks, Riddle has done his best to ensure that the memory of RK-Bro lives on. This was on display during tonight’s segment, where the former tag team champion gave a shoutout to Orton before The Miz interrupted him and said the latter’s career was over.
The Miz then reiterated his words on Twitter while retweeting a clip from WWE:
“I stand by this statement.”
During the segment, Ciampa attacked Riddle after the latter challenged the former Intercontinental Champion to a singles match. The former tag team champion persevered and defeated The A-Lister with Orton’s signature move, the RKO.

For now, it’s unclear when the the former champion will return. The latest update claimed that Orton was consulting neurosurgeons to determine the proper course of treatment.
Even in his absence, Riddle continues to seek redemption for his best friend. Most recently, he teamed up with Shinsuke Nakamura in hopes of capturing the Undisputed Tag Team Championships but ultimately failed. It remains to be seen whether Roman Reigns will answer The Original Bro’s challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
