TMZ recently caught up with Randy Orton as he was heading to depart from Washington, DC and they asked him his thoughts on if WWE should go ahead and hold the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, to which Orton responded:
“I think we should go. I think the only way to help with change over there is to go and not to cancel the trip,”
He added, “That’s the goal is to make things better everywhere and I think us NOT going doesn’t help. Going helps.”
Orton also added that he believes women will be allowed to wrestle in Saudi one day.
WWE is still believed to be monitoring the situation but does have a backup plan in place if they have to pull the event.
