It was an action-packed encounter that ended with Orton’s team picking up a big victory. The match also added to the dominance of Orton and Riddle’s tag team.
All eight superstars seemed determined to brutalize opponents right from the start. The tension between AJ Styles, Omos, and The New Day was evident, and it appears that their rivalry will continue on WWE RAW. Elias and Ryker had an excellent opportunity to showcase their potential, and they were impressive too.
However, Randy Orton still managed to steal the show with his performance tonight. He was entirely focused on winning and easily dominated everyone inside the ring. Orton also had a brief altercation with AJ Styles, and their chemistry was impeccable. Their in-ring exchange teased a plausible feud on WWE RAW between their respective teams.
In the closing moments of the match, Orton hit a devastating RKO and pinned Elias for the victory. Soon after that, Kingston and Woods entered the ring top to celebrate with R-K-Bro.
