With the slew of WWE releases today speculation was amounting that Randy Orton was among the talents released today.
Orton's profile on WWE.com was inactive for a short time earlier today, which led to the speculation of him being released along with the other eight talents that were released today. Several sites picked up on the speculation but there doesn't seem to be any truth to it.
Wrestlezone.com is reporting that this was indeed just speculation and no reliable sources have said Orton has been released.
Among the names WWE released today are:
Damien Sandow, Santino Marella, Hornswoggle, El Torito, Cameron, Zeb Colter, Alex Riley and King Barrett.
