It looks like Randy Orton isn't going anywhere.
Randy Orton had been teasing possibly leaving WWE when his contract comes due next year, but PWInsider reports that won't be happening. According to the site, the legendary 13-time World Champion has signed a new multi-year deal that will keep him with WWE for several years. Fightful was able to confirm the re-signing, but not any length of time associated with it.
Orton took to social media, confirming the new contract and revealing the new deal is for five years.

Fightful and Fightful Select had reported recently that Orton made a personal push to Vince McMahon to align himself with Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder of the Revival recently, both of whom have contracts coming due in the spring of 2020. The faction ended up not staying together for any extended period of time and Orton and The Revival ended up going to separate brands in the 2019 WWE Draft.
Fightful keeps a running list of confirmed contract expiration dates in our resources section.
