WWE has officially announced that the Raw Tag Team Champions Riddle & Randy Orton will face the SmackDown Tag Team titleholders The Usos at Survivor Series.
Recapping both teams’ reigns, WWE noted:
One of the most dominant tag teams in WWE history, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos will square off with Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro at Survivor Series.
In the midst of their first championship reign, Randy Orton and Riddle have fended off the likes of The Hurt Business and AJ Styles & Omos since claiming gold at SummerSlam, but the duo will run into one of its biggest tests in the seven-time Tag Team Champions The Usos.
Jimmy and Jey Uso are used to maintaining the tag team standard in WWE, holding the sixth-longest Tag Team Championship reign in WWE history at 202 days. The twins are one of the few pairs in WWE history to claim tag team gold seven or more times and have been asserting their authority on the blue brand since defeating Rey & Dominik Mysterio at WWE Money in the Bank.
Can RK-Bro prove they are the superior tag team, or will they be locked inside The Uso Penitentiary?

It is now tradition that Raw and SmackDown champions do battle during the annual event. WWE Champion Big E will take on Universal Champion Roman Reigns this Sunday. The Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champions are also set to square off, with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair preparing fight for brand supremacy.
The event will also feature five-on-five Raw vs SmackDown elimination tag team bouts. On the November 12 edition of SmackDown, Sami Zayn was removed from the men’s Blue Brand side, and Aliyah was kicked off the women’s team.
Becky Lynch recently admitted that she wishes there were more stakes for matches at Survivor Series.
