WWE officially announces Reigns vs Paul for Undisputed WWE Universal title at Crown Jewel

Sep 17, 2022 - by Colin Vassallo

WWE held a press conference at the Dawg House Saloon and Sports Book located inside the Resorts World Las Vegas to officially announce Roman Reigns vs Logan Paul for the Undisputed WWE Universal title at the upcoming Crown Jewel premium live event in Saudi Arabia.

Michael Cole hosted the press conference and first invited Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, The Usos, Solo Sikoa, and Sami Zayn to the stage. Cole then invited Logan Paul to join them as well.

WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Paul Levesque, was the last man to come in to make the announcement of the match.

Triple H thanked all the fans and media who came in for the announcement. He mentioned that WWE is all about spectacles and events such as WrestleMania and Clash at the Castle and then mentioned next year’s Mania at SoFi Stadium.

Levesque said that speaking of spectacles, they cannot not mention Saudi Arabia and Crown Jewel and then announced “a match like no other, a spectacle like no other,” as Roman Reigns defends the Undisputed WWE Universal title against Logan Paul.

He called Paul a “culture phenomenal with 100 million social media followers” and said he earned his respect with what he did in the ring already.

Speaking about Reigns, he said there is no one in this industry even close that touches the level that Roman Reigns is in right now.

Both Reigns and Paul then took the podium for a few words.

“Everything Triple H said up here is true,” Reigns said as a kid in the audience yelled, “you suck!” That prompted Reigns to crack a smile and respond, “I’m the greatest of all time, kid!”

The champ said that he appreciates Paul and he could be the third match on any card he headlines but being in the main event is a big mistake.

“In Saudi Arabia, I’m gonna show you what God Mode really looks like,” Reigns said.

Paul took the podium next and thanked WWE and Triple H for trusting him that in his third match he’s wrestling Roman Reigns in the main event of a premium live event. He said that come Crown Jewel, he will deliver a performance like we’ve never seen before.

“Roman Reigns will acknowledge me on November 5,” Paul said.

The press conference ended with both Reigns and Paul coming face-to-face and Reigns pushing Paul away.

    While Paul does have some talent in the ring, it’s a shame they’re brining him in just to job out to Reigns. I guess at this point, that’s all they’ll be doing through Wrestlemania. At least guys will be getting paid to go against the champ, but fans know that the title isn’t going to be taken off him at least through spring time.

    WWE: releases a lot of good workers because of budget cuts (Yeah, I know this was when Vince was still in charge and Triple H rehired some of ’em)

    Also WWE: hires a social media clown and is handing him such a high profile match.

    What the hell, Triple H?

    “Hey! You know that giant ppv WWE hypes up hard where nothing ever happens??! A new one’s happening on November 5th!”

    I have ZERO interest in seeing that match. Predictably, we know who is winning, how he’ll win and we will get Reigns as champ until WM. Where, he won’t fight someone deserving like Cody or Seth, rather, a part time Rock that doesn’t need the money and no one cares if he’s around or not. So another words, the next 6 months are going to be BORING. And I was just starting to think Trips was really gonna change course on Roman. He’s stale, he doesn’t need the rub. He needs to do the job for Cody or Drew.

    I wonder how many of Logan Paul’s social media followers will tune in to watch him go for the title.
