And so it is set. Over the last few years, WWE has regularly traveled to Saudi Arabia for a series of shows. These events have received a mixed reaction to say the least but they certainly do get attention. WWE will present a unique selection of matches, often including names that do not appear for the company full time. Now they have a new main event set in a first time ever match.
WWE held a press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, officially announcing that Logan Paul will challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title in the main event of Crown Jewel on November 5. The match was set up over the course of the week, beginning with the two arguing on Twitter and leading up to a face to face segment between Paul and the Bloodline this week on SmackDown. This will be Paul’s first ever title shot.
Opinion: The match was all but made this week on SmackDown so the press conference and official announcement were little more than a formality. Paul is certainly going to be a unique challenger to Reigns, though I’m not sure how well it is going to be received. The good thing is that it is taking place at one of the Saudi Arabia shows, which have a tendency to be a bit outside of the main WWE storylines.
What do you think of the match? How do you see it going? Let us know in the comments below.
