Former WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle opened the Monday Night RAW and did a heartwarming promo about their huge loss on last week’s SmackDown. Riddle stated that his tag team partner Randy Orton has been dealing with severe back issues over the past two years. Also, Riddle noted that Orton couldn’t stand before their Tag Team Title Unification match on SmackDown. King of Bros added that he is not sure RK-Bro will reunite ever again.
"@RandyOrton's been having a really hard time with his back lately. Before our Tag Team Title Match, he could barely walk. I knew Randy wouldn't let me down because he knew how much it went to me. And he knew how much it meant to you."@SuperKingofBros #WWERaw pic.twitter.com/GyWKpThw7A— WWE (@WWE) May 24, 2022
In fact, Randy Orton had shoulder and back problems throughout his career. However, this injury angle is a part of the storyline. We previously reported that WWE has a huge plan for Randy Orton and Riddle. Both superstars will face Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship in a separate premium live event. Riddle is set to face Reigns at Money in the Bank on July 2nd, and Orton is set to face Reigns at SummerSlam on July 30th. Currently, there is no report about what the future holds for RK-Bro after these premium live events.
WWE Hell in a Cell is scheduled to take place at Allstate Arena on June 5th. On this week’s Monday Night RAW, WWE announced three matches for the Hell in a Cell card.
Bobby Lashley issued a challenge to MVP on last night’s show. Lashley stated that if MVP can defeat Bobby Lashley in a singles match, then MVP has a right to choose a stipulation for the match between Omos and Lashley at the upcoming Hell in a Cell premium live event. MVP was able to pick up a countout victory with some help from Omos. During RAW Talk, MVP announced that he will choose a Handicap match. Therefore it was official and Bobby Lashley will face MVP and Omos at WWE Hell in a Cell.
Asuka vs. Bianca Belair for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship bout became a triple threat match after Becky Lynch defeated Asuka in the main event of last night’s RAW. Now Bianca will defend her RAW Women’s Title against Becky and Asuka in a triple threat match at WWE Hell in a Cell.
Kevin Owens and Ezekiel’s storyline began on RAW after WrestleMania. Most fans thought this storyline would be boring. However, Owens made it interesting. Now the two superstars will face each other at WWE Hell in a Cell.
With these three matches, WWE announced a total of four matches for the upcoming WWE Hell in a Cell. The other bout is Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins. It will happen inside Hell in a Cell.
WWE has announced two matches for next week’s RAW. Recently, Lacey Evans was drafted to RAW from SmackDown. Now, her in-ring return will happen next week, but her opponent has not been announced yet. Also, Bianca Belair is set to face Asuka in a non-title match on WWE RAW.
