Riddle Reveals Randy Orton Wanted To Ride A Camel At WWE Crown Jewel
Knowing Orton, he probably would have RKO’d it
One of the highlights of this year’s Crown jewel event was seeing RK-Bro’s Riddle ecstatically riding a camel to the ring, as partner Randy Orton looked on with disdain.
Apparently the disdain was not aimed at Riddle, but rather because he couldn’t ride one too.
Speaking on the unique experience to The Metro, Riddle revealed that Orton pushed hard to have a go on a camel himself:
“The camel was a good time! I highly recommend, if you haven’t ridden a camel, get yourself a camel, get yourself the opportunity to ride one. Especially if you get the opportunity to ride one in Saudi, embrace the culture there and everything else – and the fans loved it. I’ll be honest – I loved it. You know who wasn’t happy about it though, because they didn’t get to ride a camel either? Randy. Randy wanted to ride a camel and Vince [McMahon] wouldn’t him.
“He goes, ‘Randy, that’s not your character, riding a camel.’ He’s like, ‘What does that mean man?! My character doesn’t ride a camel?!’ I’m like, ‘Randy, I’m sorry bro, sometimes you’re just not the dude that rides camels.’”
To be fair to McMahon, Orton riding a camel would have been a jarring sight, and the character of Orton would definitely not be galloping to the ring aboard a dromedary with reckless abandon.
