It was reported last night by PWInsider that multi-time world Champion and king of the vintage move Randy Orton had signed a new 5-year contract with WWE.
This was soon confirmed by Orton on Twitter, who promised to piss off fans for many years to come.

Thank Vince for that, for a while I thought we were going to see him go to AEW and not care very much there either.
Long-time rival and current WWE COO Triple H also gave his thoughts on Randy re-signing.
“I’m glad to put the rumors to rest. For almost two decades, Randy Orton has been a cornerstone of WWE…and Randy Orton will remain a cornerstone of WWE for a long time!”
The rumours he mentions are that it was thought for some time that Randy was thinking of jumping to AEW, particularly after he posted the below image on his Instagram, tagging in a number of stars who are known to be looking to leave WWE.
