“John Cena is 10 times a superstar you will ever be”- Randy Orton took a massive dig over Roman Reigns on WWE Smackdown

The 'Apex Predator' Randy Orton issued a bit of reality check to Roman Reigns about who's the real megastar out there.

Randy Orton was spitting out fire on microphone last night on WWE Smackdown.

As seen on this week’s WWE Smackdown, Randy Orton and Riddle threw a challenge for a Tag Team Championship Unification match towards The Usos to kickoff the show. Then they called The Bloodline out to contront them face to face in the ring but instead got Sami Zayn making his way to the ring who was trying to prove his loyalty towards The Bloodline.

Randy suggested a brilliant idea to Zayn as he said that if Riddle beats him in a one-on-one match tonight, they will receive their quest for a Title Unification match to which Zayn initially wasn’t thrilled about but ultimately went on to accept the challenge on behalf of The Bloodline.

The match was later won by Riddle via pinfall which now meant that RK-Bro will receive their wish for their highly demanded match against The Usos. In the main event, Roman Reigns alongside The Usos and their special counsel Paul Heyman summoned to the ring where they cut a promo about how dominant as a champion Reigns has been over the past year smashing guys like John Cena and Brock Lesnar and also added that there’s no one brave enough left to step up in his face.

Suddenly, when Reigns told The Usos to tell their answer towards the challenge laid down towards them, RK-Bro music hit as they walked down that aisle and entered the ring. Randy Orton went straight to Roman’s face and yelled a savage response towards the John Cena mention by him earlier in his promo as he said that “John Cena is 10 times a superstar you will ever be”.

This made the crowd go crazy and there was a smile on the face of Reigns after hearing this. Clearly he knew that Randy got him on that very moment. The segment ended with Riddle hitting a cheeky knee strike to Reigns. Now, WWE has officially announced that RK-Bro will challenge The Usos in a Tag Team Championships Unification match next week live on Friday Night Smackdown itself.

Who will Unify those Tag Team Titles?

RK-Bro (Randy Orton and Riddle) also faced The Usos at last year’s Survivor Series.

Although this match was originally scheduled to happen at WWE’s recently concluded premium-live-event of Wrestlemania Backlash which was later changed to a 6 man Tag Team match, the Championship Unification is finally happening now.

With both teams lying in balance, it could be anyone’s night next week. An important thing worth noting will the presence of the Undisputed Universal Champion, Roman Reigns during the match as he was hit by a wicked knee strike to the face last night.

The Tribal Chief won’t be just sitting quietly and watching that match unfold that easily. It would be interesting to see how Reigns reacts to Riddle’s intimidating cheap shot next week!
