Randy Orton was once again the big absentee on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw last night. His partner Riddle starred in a backstage segment with Ricochet, in which he revealed that he missed the Viper and did not know the reason for his prolonged 'disappearance'
Riddle then added that - if they win the 'Money in the Bank ladder match', he and Orton will cash in on the briefcase to grab the Raw Tag Team belts. According to authoritative rumors, a split should eventually occur between Riddle and Orton, who will betray his friend by giving him an RKO and starting a feud between the two.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling's Legion of RAW, Vince Russo revealed he wasn't happy with WWE not addressing Orton's absence from television.
Vince Russo on Randy Orton
“Randy Orton hasn't been on Raw for the past three weeks, but I don't know exactly why.
In any case, whatever the reason, I don't care. You can't let Riddle go around asking where Randy is. You've bonded these guys so deeply in the last month and now Matt has no idea where Orton is? It's like tuning into Friends and seeing Ross skip three episodes without anyone wondering why.
Such a thing would never happen," Vince Russo analyzed. “This situation has been going on for a few weeks now, but they insist on not wanting to face reality. They don't want to let us know what happens, so they just say that he is missing ”- he added.
Many people believe that NXT's heart and soul were embodied by the warm audience of Full Sail University. “I've probably seen a total of five NXT shows, I have to be honest. A lot of people told me that I should watch NXT, that it was worth it, in fact, I tried.
I was disgusted by the crowd, it was really hateful. From that moment I stopped watching shows, I couldn't take it anymore. I didn't like the NXT audience since Kevin Owens' debut," he commented. We saw Riddle in a backstage segment with Ricochet.
Riddle revealed that he missed Randy Orton and added that if he won the men's Money In The Bank match, he and Orton would cash in on the WWE RAW Tag Team Champions. Miz and Morrison then drenched the duo with their dripsticks.
Ricochet then faced John Morrison in singles action. The end of the match saw Riddle come out and neutralize The Miz, who had gotten involved a number of times from his wheelchair at ringside.
