Even with the Technician boost, Rapid Spin is still very weak. It's not meant to be used as an attacking move; it's meant to be used as a support move. You'll have to replace it with Close Combat for a more powerful STAB, or go for the standard defensive Hitmontop:
-Rapid Spin
-Hi Jump Kick/Close Combat
-Sucker Punch/Stone Edge
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate

For Swampert, this EV spread is better to help out its physical bulk a bit: 240 HP/216 Def/52 SDef.

Oh and please give Nidoking Earth Power. It has plenty of good coverage and the set should look something like this:
-Earth Power
-Sludge Wave
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt/Fire Blast/Focus Blast
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Sheer Force
