Randy Orton just divorced his wife Samantha. I feel bad for their daughter. She’s the one that’s going to get the worst of it.

4. Randy Orton’s Got the Guns … And the Money
— Chris Uño (@CRS_One) July 10, 2013
According to divorce documents, Randy gets his Range Rover, Bentley, and Harley Davidson, while Samantha gets her new Infiniti. Randy also gets several six-figure bank accounts, his jewelry, one of their homes, and … his gun collection. Which, if you’re a Randy Orton fan, you know he has plenty of “guns”.
In addition, Randy gets 100% of all rights, title, and interest in his WWE contract, which is a ton of money ($291,666 a month in earnings).
So, what does Samantha get? She gets a bank account with $654,317, her $99,000 engagement ring, all her other jewelry, one house, and sole custody of their daughter. Randy, however, does get visitation and he agreed to pay Samantha $4,500 each month for child support.
5. Their Daughter Alanna is the Love of Their Lives
Daughter 4-year-old Alanna is the light of their lives and she is very close to both of them. This will surely be a difficult adjustment for her. On the other hand, Daddy is on the road at times for the WWE, so she may be used to him not being around all the time.
