After Riddle cost Kofi Kingston a shot at winning the Tag Team Battle Royal earlier on this week’s episode of WWE RAW, Riddle faced the former WWE Champion a singles match to settle their differences. Despite Randy Orton’s support at ringside, Kingston came out on top in a battle between these two prominent stars.

Kingston came out hot in the match, landing an emphatic springboard kick onto Riddle before he floored Orton with a baseball slide just as he came down to ringside to watch the match. As the two men recovered, Kingston then got a taste of Riddle’s strength, as “The Original Bro” blasted him with a nasty forearm to knock him down to the floor. Kingston was able to avoid an RKO attempt outside the ring, but he missed his own Trouble in Paradise attempt.

With both superstars back in the ring, Kingston once again blocked Riddle’s RKO attempt and floored him with the Trouble in Paradise. Kingston’s signature move was enough to knock Riddle down for good and give Kingston the decisive victory.
