The YouTube superstar Logan Paul is set to face the renowned Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on November 5 at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event to be held in Saudi Arabia.
Dave Meltzer reported that WWE will be hosting a press conference this Saturday in Las Vegas to announce Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul to headline the November PPV.
Logan Paul had already hinted that this might happen, after being on the Impaulsive Podcast and stating: “You put me against Roman Reigns right now, I think I would win. Me vs. Roman Reigns one-on-one, that's my match.”
Champion Reigns' response was not long in coming. "The Tribal Chief" immediately launched a tweet where he asked his manager, Paul Heyman, to take care of Paul.
Paul made his WWE debut in April of this year, in a tag team match against Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio at Wrestlemania 38. Miz attacked his partner Paul after the match. Months later, the YouTuber and boxer from Ohio will have the opportunity to headline a PPV for the company, something truly great when it comes to a match against Roman Reigns, one of the best superstars of recent times.
You may not like them, but the Paul brothers are flying higher and higher. While Jake Paul is set to take on an MMA legend like Anderson Silva in the boxing ring, Logan will get all the spotlight at a major event like Crown Jewel.
All that remains is for the match to be confirmed and then for November to arrive. We'll see if Paul, who so far has shown a talent for wrestling, is up to the task against a veteran like Reigns, who is sure to make him look good in the ring.
