Controversial former WWE star, Randy Orton, has caused a stir in the wrestling world with his recent announcement to “OFFICIALLY RETIRE” from pro wrestling if his real-life foe, CM Punk, makes his WWE return at Survivor Series WarGames.
Orton, who is known for his outspoken and often controversial opinions, took to social media to make the bold declaration, stating that he has no interest in continuing his wrestling career if Punk is brought back to the WWE.
The animosity between Orton and Punk dates back to their time in the WWE, where they were known for their intense rivalry both inside and outside the ring. Their real-life feud has been well-documented, with both wrestlers engaging in public spats and trading barbs in interviews.
While Punk has been vocal about his disdain for the WWE and has been critical of the company in the past, there have been rumors circulating about a possible return for the former wrestler at the upcoming Survivor Series WarGames event.
Fans and fellow wrestlers have been quick to react to Orton’s announcement, with many expressing shock and disbelief at the idea of the veteran wrestler retiring over Punk’s potential return. Some have speculated that Orton’s statement may be a negotiating tactic or a way to drum up interest in a potential match between the two.
Regardless of the motivations behind Orton’s announcement, it has certainly added an extra layer of intrigue to the upcoming event. Whether Punk will make his much-anticipated return to the WWE remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain: if he does, it could mean the end of an era for one of the wrestling world’s most iconic figures.
