Randy Orton is back in WWE and it doesn’t look like Hollywood or any other wrestling companies are going to get their hands on him.
Randy Orton returned to WWE at Survivor Series after eighteen months out of action in which Orton underwent serious back surgery. Randy Orton was told by doctors not to return to the WWE ring but return he has and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere.
Speaking on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, Orton explained that he feels he has been given a second chance with his career and he’s going to spend the rest of his life with WWE:
I’m going to be here for the rest of my life. This is me. I’m not moving on to Hollywood. I love what I do. I just had eighteen months off with spinal fusion. I was kind of faced with the fact that I wouldn’t be able to do this again, so it’s like I have a second lease on my career here and I’m not going to take a day for granted.
Randy Orton Set To Be WWE Lifer
In 2019, questions were asked about Orton’s status as he publicly flirted with free agency at a time when AEW was just beginning and WWE was signing up its stars to long-term deals.
It is believed Orton leveraged the situation to improve his deal with WWE and WWE could still add more time to Randy Orton’s contract for his time on the shelf.
