Randy Orton Off WWE TV Following Bloodline Post-Match Attack

Randy Orton was absent from last night's WWE Raw.

Randy Orton was absent from WWE Raw last night following the events of last week's SmackDown.

The team of Orton and Riddle lost the Raw Tag Team Championship to The Usos in a title unification match, thanks in part to interference from Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. RK-Bro were then beaten down by the Bloodline in the aftermath of the bout. 

Orton's absence was explained by Riddle in Raw's opening promo. He revealed that Orton has been dealing with back issues recently, but competed in the unification match anyway. 

Riddle also stated in his promo that he's unsure about the future of RK-Bro as a tag team, noting that there's a possibility they may never compete together again. 

Riddle went on to team with the Street Profits in a six-man tag team match, defeating the Usos and Sami Zayn (although the victory came after Jimmy and Jey had walked out of the match and abandoned Sami.)

None of the wrestlers involved are currently booked for a match at WWE Hell in a Cell on June 5, although only five bouts have been confirmed at the time of writing.
