Last year, John Cena made headlines in wrestling fandom when he divorced his wife of three years. The breakup was even used as part of a storyline in his feud with The Rock.
Now, another WWE superstar is in the news for the end of his marriage. According to TMZ, Randy Orton and Samantha Speno have called it quits. The two tied the knot in 2007, but separated in 2012. In March, Speno filed for divorce, and now the couple has officially broken up.
In the settlement, Speno was awarded a bank account worth $654,317, her jewelry and one house. Orton was able to hold onto several bank accounts, his gun collection, several cars, another house and the entirety of his WWE contract. TMZ reports that the wrestler makes approximately $3.5 million per year. Orton also agreed to pay his ex-wife $4,500 a month to help support their 4-year-old daughter.
The split appears to be amicable, unlike Cena’s, which played out in the media and included accusations of infidelity. When Speno filed for divorce she claimed that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
Below are pictures of Speno and Orton, who got engaged in 2005. Speno also gets to keep her engagement ring, which cost $99,000.
