At SummerSlam, RK-Bro beat AJ Styles & Omos to capture the Raw Tag Team championship. Since then, Riddle and Styles have traded wins in singles competition, Omos has continued to look dominant, and Randy Orton has taken a little time off (reportedly due to an unspecified injury or health issue).
Whatever they’ve been doing, we now know the four men will be flying to Saudi Arabia later this month to run back their showdown from the Biggest Party of the Summer.

The ongoing WWE Draft could add a wrinkle or two to this one. The reigning champs have already been selected by Raw, so they’re staying put. We’ll find out where Styles & Omos are headed - and if they’re headed there together - when the Draft concludes tonight (Oct. 4). Whatever happens, the new rosters don’t take effect until after Crown Jewel.
This is the third match officially announced for Oct. 21’s event, the only PPV currently on the schedule before Survivor Series.
Here’s the updated line-up for Riyadh:
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal championship
- Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair (c) vs. Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Women’s title
- RK-Bro (Riddle & Randy Orton) (c) vs. AJ Styles & Omos for the Raw Tag Team championship
