Logan Paul exceeded all my expectations in his first two WWE matches.

Am I the only one that thinks Logan Paul Vs. Roman Reigns is a brilliant idea?

Dave Meltzer teased a huge story and gave a lot of people some nerves.
Roman Reigns vs Logan Paul is a pretty cool, quirky thing to do, but Dave had me refreshing this app thinking the company got sold or some shit lmfao

Crown Jewel is a largely non-cannon show. A special attraction between Roman Reigns and Logan Paul is such a good idea. It allows WWE to get even more eyeballs onto Reigns and the product. A good call by Triple H for a one-off show.

Idc what anybody says, I’m excited for Roman Reigns vs Logan Paul
This has potential to be one of the best feuds all year in wrestling

This is typical for the big-time Saudi events, where the extra money means WWE pulls out all the stops for the show.
Roman Reigns has beat everyone in the WWE. He stands atop a pile of foes, the Head of the Table and the Acknowledged Tribal Chief. As rumors persist that Reigns is gearing up to (finally) take on The Rock at WrestleMania next year in Los Angeles, the question remains if anyone can take him down. But assuming he holds the title until April, he will need to defend the title in the meantime, even if he is not on TV regularly.
So who will be that challenger? It appears that celebrity wrestler and YouTube icon Logan Paul is up next.
Logan Paul called out Reigns on his ImPaulsive podcast.
This all began after Roman Reigns joined Impulsive to talk with Paul and whoever those two other dudes are.
— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) September 13, 2022
The interview was good. Roman Reigns did an intense but light-hearted call-out of Paul.
— Impaulsive (@impaulsive) September 14, 2022
Paul and his cronies decided to run their mouths at the show’s end. Following the interview, Paul said he could take Reigns in the ring, citing his match at SummerSlam and that he took on Floyd Mayweather in only his second ever boxing match.
Of course, Reigns didn’t take this lightly, and the Tribal Chief responded.
I bless the world and bring the Island of Relevancy to your show. You and your boys acknowledge me and as soon as I’m gone you run your mouth?!.
Wiseman, handle him. @HeymanHustle https://t.co/vbWgX74ZAW
— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) September 14, 2022
Heyman responded and issued a vague threat, calling the situation “handled.”
I am in receipt of your command, and I shall indeed bestow upon @LoganPaul the wisdom he so desperately lacks.
— Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) September 15, 2022
Logan Paul responded to Heyman’s vague threat.
Exactly how do you plan on handling me? https://t.co/cUuh1cWHvB
— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) September 15, 2022
Triple H chimed in, inviting Paul to come on SmackDown this Friday on Fox.
…It just so happens I have a globally televised platform to allow our Superstars to “handle” their issues with one another … consider this an invite for #Smackdown tomorrow night! https://t.co/99Rh9SJY4a
— Triple H (@TripleH) September 15, 2022
And (finally) now Logan Paul will be appearing on this week’s SmackDown.

And WWE is full-on promoting it.
Interesting comments from @LoganPaul on his podcast…
— WWE (@WWE) September 14, 2022
Can Logan Paul Take On Roman Reigns?
Sure. The question is, should he?
I think this is what happens when you have a limited roster that you already cycled through. With Cody Rhodes out of the picture until Royal Rumble at the earliest, someone has to challenge Reigns that hasn’t already. Why not Logan Paul? He’s one of the country’s biggest celebrities and will bring many eyes to the match.
Plus, he can wrestle.
