Randy Orton Injury Forced Championship Change In 2022

The Viper Randy Orton held the RAW Tag Team Championship as part of RK-Bro alongside his Riddle. RK-Bro were involved in a massive title vs. title feud with SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos. However, RK-Bro lost the match, and The Usos became the Undisputed Tag Team Champions on the May 20th edition of Friday Night SmackDown.

According to the Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE originally planned RK-Bro retain and remain as Raw Tag Team Champions. However, Randy Orton's back injury led to the creative team to unify the tag titles, with The Usos holding both titles.

"The tag titles were not going to be unified, and then… that's when Randy Orton's career almost ended. Riddle and Orton were just gonna stay at as the Raw champions… So without Riddle and Orton RK-BRO who are a hot team…they just went with The Usos to hold both belts." (H/T: SEScoops)
