WWE Superstar Riddle found himself fighting The Usos alone on SmackDown after Shinsuke Nakamura was injured.

On several occasions the Original Bro came really close to correcting a major mess once Nakamura was taken back.

However, there was a distraction late in the day when Roman Reigns’ music hit, giving Jimmy and Jay Uso a window to win.

With the talent involved, this was no surprise, even if the story ran its course with Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and Butch battling Kofi and Xavier for months.
