Report: Randy Orton’s WWE future uncertain



Vince McMahon is said to be livid at the suspended Randy Orton. Apparently the WWE boss had felt Orton had matured over the past few years.

Superluchas.net reports that Orton had a meeting with McMahon, Triple H and Kevin Dunn in Stamford, CT on Friday. The atmosphere at the meeting was described as “hostile.” Compounding the situation, according to the source, is that several company officials are said to be lobbying for Orton’s termination. Orton agreed to a lucrative ten year deal in 2010, and it is believed to be unjustifiable if he is relegated to a mid-level role, something that may well happen because a second suspension makes him at risk of firing if he violates the Wellness policy once more.

Orton reportedly tested positive for the anabolic steroid Dianabol, and is currently serving his 60-day suspension.

    His current deal has him signed until 2019…. They don’t do that for just anyone…

    I pray that the WWE keeps this guy, I would hate for him to spoil an already rotten TNA. He should be turned into a heel jobber which fits his skillset. Let him job every week to Christian, and other few other guys left with talent.

    Chris…. no.

    Half the guys I wrestle with cannot stand him, and very few are actually fans. Most of my friends don’t like the guy, and find him very bland and unimaginative as a character and performer.

    There are several other very hard workers in the company who can keep that spot, hold it, and make the company look good. Christian & Kofi would be the top two picks… followed by Dolph, Cody and Swagger.

    Orton has had the better part of 10 years to get his act together. He has a job where he is seen by millions a week, he is in a spot where he is one of the images to the company, and he has a family to support. His behavior and steroid use make him WORTHLESS.

    Name me ANY job, from ditch digger to Fortune 500 CEO, where ANYONE would put up with behavior like that over the course of a decade.

    If you can… the person in charge is completely pathetic.

    The reason why the WWE is doing this to Orton is because he’s not making enough moolah for Triple H and Vince.

    Guess I’ll jump on the smart mark bandwagon and say that this doesn’t really break my heart. Thought he had straightened himself out, but his recent behaviors suggest otherwise. Honestly, Orton being let go can only be GOOD for business. On the one hand, WWE loses one of their top guys, but they also lose a promo-killer and unprofessional pretty boy (a la Shawn Michaels back in his heyday). So what if he goes to TNA? I’m not saying it won’t make a difference for TNA – it might, but even if it does, big deal. WWE could use the competition, even though it might only last for a short while with Hogan and Bischoff at the helm. On top of all that, as many others have pointed out, it would help WWE as a company by legitimizing the point that no one is bigger than the business and the Wellness Policy, which is often mocked, applies universally.

    orton isnt worth the money they pay him…his promo work sucks and austin even said he needed work in that area, he seems to phone it in with his wrestling too. im not saying hes terrible, he just seemed to get lazy the last couple years. just let the guy go…sure it would help out other talent by him continously putting them over, but why pay a guy who is gonna be a jobber for a while main event money…let him go and throw that money into someone else who could use the push
