Matt Riddle Reveals Why Randy Orton Wasn’t On A Camel At Crown Jewel

November 16, 2021

The WWE delivered yet another quality show to wrestling fans in Saudi Arabia with Crown Jewel 2021, and the event provided quite a few moments that viewers won’t forget for some time. Among them was a hilarious entrance in which Matt Riddle, one-half of the tag-team duo RK-Bro, rode to the ring on the back of a camel. Now, nearly a month after the event, we’re learning that his partner Randy Orton also wanted in on the camel-riding action, but CEO Vince McMahon had one of his silly notions and shut the idea down. 

While Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Riddle spoke on why Vince McMahon banned Randy from riding a camel to the ring at the recent WWE Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia.

“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.’”

Riddle was then asked who came up with the idea for him to ride a camel to the ring, to which he replied:

“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.”

Riddle and Orton will face The Usos in a Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series this coming Sunday but their partnership seems to be breaking down, but we will have to wait and see what happens Sunday.
