The Raw Tag Team Champions, RK-Bro and the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos have been at loggerheads over the past few weeks.

Matt Riddle and Randy Orton are current WWE Raw tag champions

Roman Reigns instigated the rivalry on the SmackDown after WrestleMania 38. After the Tribal Chief became the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion by virtue of defeating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, he wanted The Usos to have two titles each like himself.

He wanted them to unify the Raw and SmackDown tag titles. The former Shield member ordered them to go to the following episode of Raw and issue the challenge to RK-Bro. The twin brothers obliged and RK-Bro were also quick to accept the challenge. The Winners Take All Title Tag Team Championship Unification match was scheduled for the WrestleMania Backlashpaay-per-view. However, during the contract signing, Reigns attacked Riddle and Orton with the help of The Usos, tore the contract paper, and shoved it into the former NXT Superstar’s mouth.

Drew McIntyre came out to make the save and the tag team championship unification match was changed into a six-man tag team match where the Scottish Warrior teamed up with RK-Bro to face The Bloodline.

The dominant heel faction won the match at WrestleMania Backlash. Since then, Orton and Riddle have been hell-bent on unifying the tag titles.

Winners Take All Tag Team Championship Unification Match made official for next week’s episode of SmackDown

This week on Raw, RK-Bro made their intentions clear that they want to become the unified tag champs. They said they were going to confront The Bloodline on SmackDown and so they did.

Orton and Riddle issued the challenge to start the show. They got under the skins of the longest-reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions after saying that they do not have the balls to make their own decisions and Reigns does so on their behalf.

The Bloodline watched the segment from backstage and agreed that they needed to give RK-Bro an answer. Later in the show, The Bloodline came out to the ring and RK-Bro also joined in. After some war of words, The Usos accepted the challenge, and the match was made official for next week.

This promises to be an interesting match with two great tag teams on display.
