Randy Orton On Why He's Going To Saudi Arabia: "I've Got 5 Kids. I Gotta Go Make That Dollar"

Randy Orton comments once again on WWE going to Saudi Arabia.

Earlier this month, Orton, speaking to TMZ, defended WWE's decision to go to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel by saying, "The only way to help with the change over there and to not cancel the trip. Our girls performed in Abu Dhabi not too long ago and I think we'll be there eventually with Saudi and Crown Jewel. That's the goal to make things better everywhere. Not going, doesn't help. Going helps."

TMZ caught up with Orton once more as he was boarding his plane to head to Saudi Arabia. After commenting about the "long flight" and "shitty airplane food," Orton revealed why he decided to make the trip over to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel.

"I've got five kids. I gotta go make that dollar. They want me in Saudi, I'm going to Saudi."

When asked about John Cena and his decision to pull out of the event, Orton was unaware that Cena had done so. 

"Does he still wrestle? I didn't know he pulled out."

Cena was originally scheduled to compete alongside Orton in the WWE World Cup. However, due to his refusal to go, Cena was taken out of the tournament and replaced by Bobby Lashley. Orton will face Rey Mysterio in the first round of the WWE World Cup this Friday at Crown Jewel.
