He and Matt Riddle have been a tag team for quite some time now, as they're the current Raw Tag Team Champions. Not only are Orton and Riddle friends, but Orton believes Riddle has a chance to be special.

Orton had some praise for one of his best friends, and it's tough to argue that anything he said won't happen in the future.

"In a 20+ year career in the WWE, I’ve done a LOT. The time spent with @SuperKingofBros has been up there among my favorite. Aside from the jokes , he’s a serious competitor and athlete & a future world champion. But before that happens, we’re unifying those tag team titles on #Smackdown"

Riddle is one of the up-and-coming stars in the WWE and has a legitimate chance to be a World Champion just like Orton says.

The RK Bro is a professional wrestling team signed by the WWE composed of Randy Orton and Riddle. The team name was created due to Orton's signature move, the "RKO" and for Riddle's famous catchphrase "Bro".

They are currently the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions in their second reign. They created the team on April 19, 2021, during an episode of Raw. Riddle interrupted a backstage interview by Orton where Riddle suggested that they should form a team. The rest is history from there and the two are one of the most entertaining duos that the WWE has ever seen.

Orton definitely makes a great point about Matt Riddle. Riddle is 36 years old, which can be viewed as somewhat young in the WWE. He started his professional wrestling career in February of 2015, which means he still has at least a few years left.

Due to his entertainment and a big following, we could see him become one of the next World Champions.
