Randy Orton’s Presence in the WWE
Randy Orton hasn’t been as active of a wrestler in 2019. Corey Graves questioned him on After the Bell as to why he has had a lower presence in the WWE. Orton confirmed that this had been a mutual decision between himself and the wrestling league, allowing the ageing superstar to spend more time with his children and wife. He noted in the podcast that he never plans on leaving the WWE and will wrestle professional till he’s unwanted by the fans.
