Although Randy Orton has said in the past that he is a ‘WWE lifer’ and wouldn’t sign with any rival promotion, he did surprise some fans of All Elite Wrestling and other fans of competing promotions to WWE recently. During an interview with WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle during a newly-released edition of ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, Orton told Conrad Thompson and Kurt that he is leaving his in-ring retirement in the hands of his wife, Kim Orton.

“My big thing and my wife Kim has promised me, that if she looks at me and she thinks I’m becoming kind of a parody of myself or if I’m unable to do the things that the fans need to be able to physically see me do, in order for them to believe, you know, that an RKO still has as much sting as it once did. You know, if I can’t do all those things, she has promised me that she is going to let me know that it’s time to hang up the boots, and until then, I’m putting my trust in her, and I’m just going to enjoy what I do because I got great kids. I got five wonderful children. I’ve got a beautiful home—a beautiful wife. Life is really good,” Randy Orton said.
