WWE superstar Randy Orton is now divorced from his wife Samantha and according to reports, he was able to keep most of his sports entertainment earnings.

The divorce became official last month after a little over six years of marriage, TMZ reported. The couple separated in in 2012 and the divorce was in filed in March. Together they have a 4-year-old daughter.

Samantha said the marriage was "irretrievably broken," according to TMZ, but the two seem to be on amicable terms.

Court documents list how their properties and accounts will be divided, and it appears both parties are satisfied with the outcome.

Orton keeps his 2012 Range Rover, 2011 Bentley, and 2009 Harley Davidson along with his gun and jewelry collection, one house, and his bank accounts. Most importantly, he maintains all rights to his WWE personality and contract.

He reportedly makes $291,666 a month, and will pay $4,500 in child support to Samantha, who has sole custody of their daughter, leaving Orton with visitation rights.

Samantha will receive $654,317 along with all jewelry, a house, and her $99,000 engagement and wedding rings.

Last year fellow wrestling superstar John Cena went through a very public and ugly divorce that was even used as a storyline on the program.

The 33-year-old Orton is a third-generation wrestler following in the footsteps of his grandfather Bob Orton Sr., father "Cowboy" Bob Orton, and his uncle Barry O.

He has been World Heavyweight Champion three times, WWE Champions six times, Intercontinental Champion and Tag Team Champion once.

Orton joined the Marines in 1998, but was released on a bad conduct discharge for going AWOL two times and disobeying a commanding officer. After these incidents he joined pro wrestling and signed with WWE in 2001.
