UPDATE: With the internet talking about Randy Orton’s “Elite” Instagram post, some people have been wondering when the WWE star’s contract expires. Fightful reports that Orton signed a ten-year deal in 2010, and his contract is up in summer of next year.

As noted, in the Instagram post Orton tagged AEW stars Cody and Chris Jericho. He also tagged Luke Harper, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder, all of whom have contacts expiring within the next year. Orton has been open about being willing to talk to AEW if he gets the opportunity.

Of course, it must also be noted that Orton enjoys riling people up on social media, so this could easily be just a troll job on his part.

ORIGINAL: Randy Orton was cryptic on social media last night, or perhaps just trolling, as he posted a photo on Instagram that got a lot of people talking. He posted a photo of himself standing next to a sign that said “ELITE LEVEL,” then tagged several other WWE stars like The Revival, Luke Harper, Elias and Riddick Moss. More importantly, he tagged AEW’s Cody and Chris Jericho.

Jericho ended up commenting on the post, writing: “Send in a tape and some pix and I’ll see what I Can do….??

It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Orton’s contract may be coming up soon, so he could simply be trying to get more money from WWE. However, AEW does have a more limited schedule than WWE and Orton recently praised AEW Dynamite, noting specifically that he’d like to work with Sammy Guevara.
