WWE has confirmed that Roman Reines will defend his undisputed WWE Universal Championship against social media personality Logan Paul at the Crown Jewel Award event on Saturday, November 5, which is being held in Saudi Arabia. The announcement was made by Triple H at the WWE press conference in Las Vegas.
Logan Paul has been in WWE for a little over a year. When he first joined the company, Paul joined villainous wrestlers like Sami Zane and Happy Corbin in their feud against Kevin Owens. Paul appeared at WrestleMania 37 and ended up taking a Stunner from Owens for his troubles. The next time Paul appeared in WWE, he teamed up with the Miz to feud with Rey and Dominic Mysterio, defeating the father-son duo at WrestleMania 38 in his first WWE match.
After Paul and The Miz defeated The Mysterios at WreslteMania 38, the Miz turned Paul into a skull-crushing finale. Paul will sign a contract with WWE and then take revenge on the Miz at the SummerSlam event last year in a critically acclaimed match. Paul’s match with Roman Reines will be his biggest test to date, as Reines has not been captured for more than 1,000 days and has held the championship for more than two years.
The match between Logan Paul and Roman Reines is likely to be the main event of Crown Jewel, an annual event in Saudi Arabia that is known for its big money, WrestleMania-level matches. The rest of the map has not been announced at the time of this writing, but it will definitely be interesting to see what other matches will be added to the map between now and when the event takes place on November 5th.
