As noted earlier, Randy Orton has signed a multi-year deal with WWE. This takes him off the list of names that could potentially sign with All Elite Wrestling.
Orton sent out a cryptic post a few weeks ago suggesting that he might go elsewhere when his WWE deal expired. Many people speculated that Orton was just playing the game and leveraging himself into a better money deal with WWE.
In a Twitter post, Orton confirmed his signing and added that his deal is for 5 years.
Orton tweeted: “The 3 most dangerous letters in sports entertainment- #RKO just re-signed with the 3 most dominant letters in sports entertainment- #WWE
Looking forward to pi$$ing off the #WWEUNIVERSE for at least 5 more years #WWEBACKSTAGE @FS1 @WWE”
The tweet was sent out before WWE Backstage went on the air.
