During a recent press conference held in Las Vegas on Saturday, WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H made a huge announcement for the main event of WWE Crown Jewel in November pitting the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns against Internet sensation Logan Paul.
The Game had massive praise for both competitors while also revealing that he wasn’t initially impressed by Logan Paul until he saw him wrestle in the ring and earned his respect:
“This is the guy as I said earlier earned my respect. In this business, I do not give my respect very easily. He has earned that and its why he is here.”
Logan Paul has wrestled two matches so far in the WWE, so it would be interesting to see how he does stepping against the caliber of a superstar of the The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns who has dominated the landscape for more than two years.

The re-emerged Prizefighter Kevin Owens cut a fiery promo against the Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre, even to the point of calling him a dumba**. He appeared on the recent episode of WWE’s The Bump and gave explanation for his comments:
“What I told Drew that night, I felt that way about Drew for a long time. I think he’s incredible in the ring, but to me, it seemed like he always tried to be something he’s not. I told him that right to his face and obviously, that did something to him.”
Owens has been exceptional ever since he main evented this year’s Wrestlemania 38 Night One with Stone Cole Steve Austin and bringing back his PrizeFighter gimmick. Drew on the other hand is coming off a crushing defeat at WWE Clash at the Castle against Roman Reigns.
Booker T features on the WWE Extreme Rules 2022 news roundup today
WWE Legend Booker T recently spoke on his Hall of Fame Podcast, talking about returning to WrestleMania for a match against WWE Hall of Famer Edge if the WWE asked him to:
“If they were to ask me to do a WrestleMania match with Edge, of course I would do it. I don’t think there’s anything on their radar or anything like that. I don’t have any itch to scratch as far as getting back in the ring or anything.”
Booker T last wrestled for the company more than a decade ago, but looks to be in great shape and most recently returned to wrestling for Reality of Wrestling promotion. Edge on the other hand was written off WWE TV programming during his feud with Dominik Mysterio and the rest of Judgment Day.
