Following the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, people have been calling on WWE to reevaluate their relationship with Saudi Arabia.
However, the company is still moving forward with Crown Jewel as planned, and former WWE Champion JBL recently shared his thoughts on why he thinks the company should move forward with the event.
TMZ caught up with Randy Orton and when The Viper was asked about Crown Jewel he said that he doesn’t think WWE should cancel the show.
“I think we should go,” Orton said via Wrestling Inc. “I think the only way to help with change over there is to go and 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, and I think us not going, doesn’t help. Going helps.”
Orton also responded by saying “100%” when asked if he thinks the women of WWE will eventually be able to perform in Saudi Arabia.
