Randy Orton To Go To AEW?

Randy Orton has a pretty sweet deal with the WWE nowadays. He’s one of the WWE’s highest paid superstars, despite the fact that he’s working what is almost a part-time schedule.

Orton signed his latest WWE contract at the start of 2010 and it’s a 10 year contract so that means he’s with the WWE till at least the beginning of 2020. Once his contract ends, however, some reports are saying that he could go to AEW.

According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, Randy has been open about his willingness to talk with AEW. Given as AEW is funded by a billionaire and will reportedly have a TV deal, their quite likely to have both the funds and the motivation to hire a star of Orton’s caliber when his WWE contract does end.

Undertaker Looking At Potentially Leaving WWE?

As reported by SEScoops.com, The Undertaker has shown signs of potentially leaving the WWE.

The Undertaker is reported to have joined Twitter last November and has since removed mentions of the WWE from his bio. He also now lists an email address that is linked to Get Engaged Media for those who are seeking to book him.

Aside from that, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer has reported that the Undertaker has no major WrestleMania match yet.

Meltzer also noted that his willingness to be booked for public appearances goes against the grain for Undertaker who tends to avoid such things to protect the air of mystery that is so important to his “Deadman” gimmick.

John Cena’s WrestleMania 35 Opponent Revealed?

Ringside News is reporting that John Cena could be facing Drew McIntyre during the biggest pay-per-view of the year.

The report states that there are currently people who are backstage and actively pulling to have McIntyre be Cena’s opponent for WrestleMania 35 on April 7.

While Cena isn’t expected to appear very often in the months leading up to WrestleMania, he and the WWE have stated that he will be at the show. Given the fact that the WWE will need to build up to his appearance though, there is a chance that Cena will show up in one or two shows in order to buildup to his match against McIntyre.

What Will Triple H’s Role Be In WrestleMania 35?

Triple H doesn’t wrestle much anymore, but when he does it’s usually during the bigger pay-per-views such as WrestleMania.

It has been rumored that a match between Triple H and his former Evolution stablemate turned movie star Batista was being thought of for WrestleMania 35, but according to Sports Illustrated those plans are on hold.

Triple H had torn his pectoral muscle late last year and has been out of action for three months. While The Game revealed last month that he was cleared to train again, a torn pectoral muscle usually needs about six months to recover. Given that, it’s likely that Triple H will stay out of the ring during WrestleMania and show up in his “authority” persona as the COO of the company.
