Riddle has a special entrance at WWE Crown Jewel, coming into the arena on the back of a camel.
While Riddle looked like he was having the time of his life on the camel, Randy Orton seemed bemused.
According to Riddle, Orton wanted to be part of the camel ride himself, but Vince McMahon wouldn't allow 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," Riddle recalled to Alistair McGeorge of Metro.
Recalling how the camel ride came together, Riddle said, "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."
RK-Bro (Riddle & Orton) successfully defended their Raw Tag Team Championships against AJ Styles & Omos at WWE Crown Jewel.
