This week’s WWE RAW episode opened with Riddle falling to AJ Styles while Randy Orton ditched his old friend. By the end of the night, however, RK-Bro had reunited and the duo officially won a chance at the WWE RAW Tag Team Championship at Slam summer.
In a fierce fight to start the night, Styles took out Riddle with a Styles Clash after a timely distraction from Omos. Despite Riddle’s disappointment about it, he was still there, albeit a bit late, for Orton when he needed him later that night against Omos. In another relatively quick match, Orton came away with “victory” after Styles – who was at ringside – hit “The Viper with a low blow, ending the match with a disqualification and starting a brawl that ensued. is over with Riddle descending into the ring.
Riddle saved Orton from a beating, forcing Orton to say that while respect was not free, Riddle earned his due thanks to how “The Original Bro” remained loyal to him. Orton then said that RK-Bro was back, and the two shook hands and kissed as the crowd cheered them on. Riddle then took the mic and challenged Styles and Omos for the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships at SummerSlam. Later in the show, the fight was officially added to SummerSlam.

Also announced for SummerSlam on tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW, a match between Alexa Bliss and Eva Marie, with Bliss seeking to officially end “The Eva-lution.”
The official announcement from the WWE website is as follows:
At SummerSlam, Alexa Bliss will set out to transform Eva-lution into Lilly-lution when the twisted goddess finds herself one-on-one with Eva Marie.
Who is more dangerous: Alexa Bliss, five-time world champion, or her frightening, perhaps supernatural companion, Lilly? While that question has yet to be answered, no one can deny the frightening anomaly that is the latest incarnation of Five Feet of Fury, whose truly menacing personality and inexplicable mystical power rampage upon anyone who crosses her path.
Eva Marie, who recently burst onto the scene with promises of a new Eva-lution to cover Raw, is trying to put herself in the weird spotlight of Bliss. While her good looks, sheer presence, and ruthless wickedness are undeniable, the most dangerous thing about Eva could be her powerful protege Doudrop, who she seems to have at her disposal.
Despite great suffering and humiliation from his mentor Eva, Doudrop failed to defeat Bliss or take Lilly away from him. Now Eva has promised to end Bliss on her own at SummerSlam.
