Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul Set for WWE Crown Jewel
What to Know Regarding Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match
As the reigning Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, close to 750 days deep into his title reign as of this writing, Roman Reigns is arguably the top star in the promotion. During his record-setting reign, Reigns defended his title against such names as Braun Strowman, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Edge, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, and Brock Lesnar. Furthermore, Reigns has enjoyed the company and assistance of The Bloodline, which not only consists of Reigns but The Usos, Paul Heyman, Solo Sikoa, and “honorary” member Sami Zayn.
Known largely as a popular Internet media personality more so than strictly a WWE Superstar, Logan Paul’s status for the upcoming Crown Jewel event took many fans by surprise. However, throughout 2022, Paul took on the role of in-ring competitor, competing alongside The Miz at WrestleMania 38 in a winning effort against The Mysterios. This past June, it was announced that Paul signed a multi-event contract with WWE, starting with SummerSlam, where he picked up a victory against The Miz.
