Randy Orton's response

Randy Orton proceeded to request Matt Jackson to say 'hi' to some former WWE Superstars for him

As can be seen in the picture above, Orton proceeded to tell Jackson to say 'hi' to a bunch of former WWE Superstars, including Chris Jericho, Matt Hardy, FTR, Jack Swagger, and Cody.

It isn't a secret that Randy Orton has several friends working in AEW. Cody and Orton were once a part of The Legacy and the stable wreaked havoc on the RAW roster back in 2009-10.

Orton also had a short-lived stint with FTR during their final days in WWE as active competitors. Orton and FTR formed an alliance following SummerSlam 2019 and the trio targeted The New Day. While Orton failed to capture the WWE title from Kofi Kingston, FTR managed to win the SmackDown Tag Team titles by defeating Xavier Woods and Big E.

Randy Orton has previously engaged with AEW stars on social media. He teased a move to AEW back in 2019, but it was later revealed that Orton had signed a new contract with WWE.
