Randy Orton and Riddle are set to receive a significant push as R-K-Bro.

This is according to PWInsider's Mike Johnson, who states that WWE wants to keep the odd couple act together for longer than the short-term. While there's no word on what, exactly, this "sizeable push" will entail, the company plans on producing R-K-Bro merchandise for the duo before long.

Orton and Riddle are now 2-0 as a tag team. Last week saw them defeat Elias and Jaxson Ryker in their first bout together, which was followed by this Monday's triumph over Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander, who split up afterwards.

Divergent personalities they may be, but the storyline is that Riddle earned Orton's respect by defeating him on the 19 April episode of Raw. The duo has since earned plaudits from fans for their unlikely chemistry in backstage segments.

It looks like R-K-Bro will push forward as babyfaces for the time being. That the current Raw Tag Team Champions, AJ Styles and Omos, are heels makes Orton and Riddle easy foils in a potential championship feud, should WWE eventually choose to go down that route with its newest tandem.
