Riddle Says Vince McMahon Wouldn’t Allow Randy Orton To Ride A Camel At WWE Crown Jewel


During a recent interview with Metro, Riddle revealed that Randy Orton wanted to ride a camel at WWE Crown Jewel but Vince McMahon wouldn’t allow it. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Randy Orton wanting to ride a camel at WWE Crown Jewel and Vince McMahon not allowing it: “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 wouldn’t let 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.”

On who pitched the idea for him to enter on a camel: “I have no idea who pitched it. All I know is that the morning of the show, seven o’clock in the morning, I was jetlagged so I didn’t get any sleep that night and I was still awake. I get a call and they’re like, ‘We need you at the show early to rehearse and stuff.’ I’m like, ‘Rehearse what?’ They go, ‘Rehearse riding a camel.’ I was like, ‘A real camel!’ They’re like, ‘Yeah!’ So, that’s what happened – it was great, I enjoyed it. The camel was great too.”
