• Planned Finish Didn’t Happen During A Match On This Week’s RAW
On this week’s RAW, The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) defeated RK-BRO (Randy Orton & Riddle) in a Tag Team Match.
The finish came when Ford hit a Frog Splash on Orton and pinned the 14-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
The finishing sequence was a little odd, possibly because Orton got hurt during the Frog Splash.

The referee’s pinfall count was awkward as well. Everyone checked on Orton after the match.
According to Fightful Select, RK-BRO was scheduled to win this match:
“We’re told that Orton and Riddle were originally slated to win the match with a series of RKOs, but because of Orton’s condition at the time, it didn’t happen.”
