Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com revealed Orton was interested in talking with AEW, but this does NOT mean that any contract has been signed or anything like that.
What was said:
“What I was told this afternoon, was that Randy Orton has been openly discussing his willingness to speak with All Elite Wrestling. “
Sapp said that he doesn’t know exactly if AEW offered him a contract but when reached out to AEW they told him that they are not tampering with WWE talent or their contracts. This could just be an attempt from Orton’s agent to get him more money from WWE.
Sean Ross also said that he's not saying Orton got an offer, or that Randy is talking with AEW. A source that has given Sean good news in the past said that he'd be WILLING to talk to AEW.
"Ehh, I'd talk to em, why not?" is the way people backstage have seen the way Randy Orton has been speaking about AEW.
Head up: if you search "Randy Orton AEW" on Twitter, virtually none of that is actually what I said on the podcast.— Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com (@SeanRossSapp) February 6, 2019
