• Reason Behind Randy Orton Rejecting AEW’s Offer

13 Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton recently signed a new 5 year deal with WWE.

Prior to that, Orton was offered a contract by All Elite Wrestling, according to the Wrestling Observer.

However, Orton wasn’t happy with the amount AEW offered him. The amount was reportedly less than what AEW is paying to their current World Champion, Chris Jericho, and Orton wanted at least as much as Jericho’s pay.

AEW officials weren’t interested in giving Orton what he wanted, so Orton ended up signing a new deal with WWE.
