Below are a couple of top WWE & AEW news stories of the day, involving Randy Orton and Christian Cage.

• Randy Orton has been a cornerstone of WWE for over two decades, with his career reaching a pinnacle when he clinched the World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam 2004.

This victory not only marked his first World Championship but also made him the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history at just 24 years old.

Recently, Orton was asked about the possibility of this record being broken in today’s WWE. The Viper expressed skepticism, citing the unique circumstances that led to his achievement and noting the lack of anyone young enough on the current roster to surpass his record.

However, Orton’s comments have sparked interest from one of WWE’s rising stars, NXT’s Je’Von Evans. At just 20 years old, Evans has already made significant strides in NXT, most recently being featured in a main event alongside NXT Champion Trick Williams and popular rapper Sexyy Red.

Inspired by Orton’s legacy, Evans took to social media to express his respect and eagerness to take on the challenge of breaking Orton’s record.

“All Respect To You @RandyOrton But I Love A Challenge OG #TheYoungOG #NXTYoungBlood #WWENXT #WWE,” Evans tweeted.

With 4 years left to match Orton’s age record, it will be interesting to see if Je’Von Evans can achieve the unthinkable and dethrone The Viper as the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history.

• During an interview on Chris Van Vliet’s Insight podcast, Christian Cage was asked about his retirement plans and how much time is left on his AEW contract.

Here’s what the former TNT Champion said:

“I always said that I would do it till it wasn’t fun, that was my barometer on it. How can I not be having fun right now? I have no timeline, I signed a contract. I think I have another 3 years left on this contract. So we’ll get to the end of that, and then see what happens.

But you know, I feel like I have a lot of knowledge. I feel like I don’t know everything, but I know a lot. And I feel like I think the business differently and I layout matches and I see matches differently than other people do.

I would like to, at some point, when the time is right obviously to give back to the business that has done what it’s done for me.”
