Randy Orton toyed with the remaining fans in the building before the WWE SmackDown taping officially ended.
Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Luke Harper have had a successful past seven days of WWE programming. It started with Orton and Wyatt defeating American Alpha to become the No. 1 Contenders to the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. They would follow this up by beating Heath Slater and Rhyno at WWE TLC, which won them the belts.
On Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown, Orton and Wyatt successfully retained the belts against Slater and Rhyno, so others will be on the way to step up as No. 1 Contenders. This is all while Orton and Harper have seemingly gotten on the same page.
Well, after 205 Live went off the air, a dark match would see the new Wyatt Family take on American Alpha and Dolph Ziggler. Afterward, Orton would tease an RKO on Harper before backing off as all three posed for the crowd (or whoever was remaining from 205 Live).

Orton and Harper had teased tension for a number of weeks, but after saving each other in matches, they seem to be on the same page. Their team chemistry should make this a long and successful run with the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on Tuesday nights.
Also, it should be noted that WWE is having the Wyatt Family defend the tag titles under the Freebird Rule. So, despite Harper not being involved in the TLC tag title match, he is still eligible to wrestle and defend the belts.
