Randy Orton To Face Tama Tonga In WWE King Of The Ring Semi-Finals On 5/24 WWE SmackDown

Randy Orton and Tama Tonga will square off in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Randy Orton defeated Carmelo Hayes in their first-ever meeting on May 17's WWE SmackDown and now, he will face Tama Tonga in the match he wanted to determine the smackdown finalist in the 2024 WWE King of the Ring Tournament.

Randy Orton got the victory when he countered Hayes' in-ring Springboard Lariat with the three most dangerous letters in all of WWE, RKO.

After his victory, Orton was confronted by Solo Sikoa, Tonga Loa, and Tama Tonga of The Bloodline, at which point, he took the time to run down his history as a 14-time WWE Champion, and much like last week he promised to RKO Tama Tonga and he's making sure that this one won't be coming out of nowhere.

Tonga advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament by defeating LA Knight on May 17 with his Jumping Complete Shot.
