I’ll be damned if this RK-Bro thing didn’t pick up right where they left off with it weeks ago when Randy Orton disappeared from WWE television. We still don’t know why, but you quickly forgot that while watching him interact with Matt Riddle on Monday Night Raw this week.
These two, man.
There remains an odd chemistry there, one that works on the strength of just how well they counterbalance each other. Riddle’s boyish enthusiasm is overwhelming in such a way that it wins you over eventually. Orton appeared to be no different, eventually succumbing to the dumb charm just enough to give Riddle a hug to the delight of the live audience in Orlando.
And then, of course, because Randy Orton will always be the most Randy Orton he could possibly be, he gave Riddle an RKO with a smile and a shrug of the shoulders.
He just can’t help himself. He never has been able to, and you can’t help but love him for it.
