Randy Orton Has a New Partner After the WWE Draft; Team Given a Name

Randy Orton is not someone who stays idle for too long. On the WWE Draft episode of SmackDown, Orton formed a new team and it appears that the duo has a name already.

In the 2024 Draft, Orton was retained by SmackDown as they drafted him back onto their roster. He was not going to stand on the sidelines for too long, as The Bloodline quickly found out. They attacked Kevin Owens for the second week in a row. Tama Tonga was taking no chances as they were brawling, and Solo Sikoa eventually joined them, with things favoring the heels due to the numbers game.

Soon though, things changed again as Randy Orton came out for the save. Sikoa was able to avoid the RKO and retreated, and the officials had to separate them before they got into it further.

The segment saw Orton and Owens team up properly after previously being allies. While they did tag together a few times, they were not an official team at the time though, as they were opponents heading into the Triple Threat match against Logan Paul at WrestleMania XL. Now, the situation appears different.

The footage of the brawl shared on social media got one million views for WWE, and Randy Orton quickly tweeted about it, tagging Owens. The Prizefighter replied with an image that showcased what appears to be their new team name, R-KO.
