When Logan Paul unexpectedly returned to WWE, he entered into a rivalry with Rey Mysterio, the United States champion. After a heated exchange on SmackDown, the two will finally meet in person on November 4 at WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Riyadh.
Both Roman Reigns and John Cena will likely play pivotal roles at Crown Jewel. However, the legendary journalist Bill Apter has given his predictions for the night, including Rey Mysterio’s bout against Logan Paul for the United States Championship.
Wrestling Legend predicts Rey Mysterio vs Logan Paul
Logan Paul, a social media phenomenon, will battle WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio for the United States Championship at November 4’s WWE Crown Jewel 2023 in Saudi Arabia. Paul’s challenge after his fight with Dillon Dennis solidified the matchup.
This fight has a lot of people excited and has the potential to steal the event. Fans may be rooting for Mysterio, but Paul’s unpredictable style and media spotlight might lead to a shocking upset. WWE seems to be on board with Logan’s recent success, which includes victories over Ricochet and Rey Mysterio.
Bill Apter predicted that Logan Paul would leave Crown Jewel as the new US Champion on Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Time Machine podcast. Apter believes The Maverick will showcase his championship on social media, leveraging his large following to bring WWE attention.
In a podcast with Sportskeeda, the legend said, “I think if Logan Paul wins, which I think he will, the promotional aspect of WWE under the new company would be raised quite a bit because he’s a social [media] influencer, and he’ll be, ‘Look at this, I have this championship.’ It’ll be all on his social platforms.”
Logan Paul, Rey Mysterio to weigh-in on WWE SmackDown next week
United States Champion Rey Mysterio and Logan Paul will participate in a weigh-in before their highly anticipated U.S. title showdown at WWE Crown Jewel. Paul returned to WWE and challenged Mysterio, questioning Mysterio’s legitimacy as U.S. Champion.
After Paul’s assault on Mysterio on SmackDown on October 27, the weigh-in was announced. Their last encounter will take place on SmackDown on November 3. The weigh-in will offer the Hall of Famer a fitting chance to seek swift retribution for Paul’s unprovoked backstage assault. WWE has enthusiastically urged its audience not to miss this event.
