Disco Inferno on why WWE Superstars Randy Orton and Riddle would fail in AEW

WCW legend Disco Inferno recently talked about the potential of Randy Orton and Riddle, aka RK-Bro, in AEW.

Apex Predator has been a solid member and one of the most consistent performers of the past two decades for WWE.

Although Orton achieved everything a wrestler could dream of achieving under the supervision of Vince McMahon, he never considered leaving WWE to make the switch to AEW.

Despite the occasional rumors of his departure over the years, The Viper confirmed to nauseam that he would be a WWE athlete. Randy Orton, at 42, is still going strong, enjoying his second reign as RAW Tag Team Champion alongside Riddle.

While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Inferno hypothesized how the RK-Bro would be “disabled” under the AEW system.

The WCW veteran drew a big contrast between the two promotions, pointing out how Tony Khan didn’t prioritize character development while WWE focused on every aspect:

“If you like RK-Bro [Randy Orton and Riddle] and put them in the AEW system, they’re going to be disabled, or they’re going to have backstage interviews in a minute and a half, you know, they’re not going to get a chance to confront, you know, they’re just won’t do it. Because they don’t do that on their show and it’s like, man, you’re not spending enough time in character development, that’s why your character is underwhelming,” Inferno said (15:28)

Disco Inferno recently put RK-Bro past the top AEW tag teams

While RK-Bro may not have a lot of experience as a team, Disco Inferno hailed the Orton and Riddle alliance as the best thing currently going on.

The WCW veteran recently called the duo superior to top teams like The Young Bucks and FTR:

“If you ask Meltzer, the guys of Dirt Sheet or AEW or the internet wrestling community, right? Who is the best tag team in the world right now? They’ll probably say Young Bucks or FTR, right? ? suck.

On SmackDown next week, RK-Bro (RAW Tag Team Champions) will face The Usos (SmackDown Tag Team Champions) in a highly anticipated title unification match.
