Cesaro returned to WWE SmackDown and immediately targeted Seth Rollins. An extended rivalry between the two superstars will help strengthen the SmackDown card. The Usos had a falling out with Roman Reigns, while Rey Mysterio looked to challenge The Tribal Chief.

Take a look at the five things that must happen on WWE RAW, NXT and SmackDown this week.
#5 Riddle must cost The R-K-Bros a tag team match on WWE RAW
Riddle and Randy Orton have an interesting partnership on WWE RAW. The two teamed up to form R-K-Bro but are still trying to iron out some of their differences.
Riddle and Orton both defeated Xavier Woods in singles matches by using each other’s finishers. However, Riddle tried a little too hard to impress The Viper last week and picked up a loss against Kofi Kingston.
WWE has booked a tag team match between The New Day and R-K-Bro for this week’s RAW. It will likely be one of the bigger matches on RAW this week. WWE must allow Riddle to blunder this week and take the pin to give New Day the victory.
AJ Styles and Omos currently hold the RAW Tag Team Championships and need to have a longer reign. For that to be possible, WWE must ensure that some differences remain between R-K-Bro for longer.
The Viper could then help Riddle get better and develop his character on RAW. It will give them time before both men challenge for the RAW Tag Team titles at WWE SummerSlam.
