One simple photo on Instagram posted by Randy Orton got both AEW and WWE fans on high alert over the weekend.
Orton took to Instagram with a photo that teases possible interest into jumping ship from WWE to AEW. He also captioned the photo with “tick tock tick tock.” Those paying close attention will notice that he also tagged Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder, Elias and Luke Harper, who also reportedly have interest in leaving WWE for AEW. In addition, Orton tagged Cody Rhodes and AEW Champion Chris Jericho.
Jericho commented on the post – “Send in a tape and some pix and I’ll see what I Can do….?”
Needless to say, Orton leaving WWE for AEW would send shock waves throughout the pro wrestling fandoms. After all, Orton has claimed WWE championship gold 13 times – nine as WWE Champion, four as World Heavyweight Champ – and at 24 year old became the youngest world champion in WWE history.
