Logan Paul will be main eventing an upcoming WWE premium live event and challenging for WWE’s top prize in just his third wrestling match when he steps into the ring with Undisputed WWE Champion Roman Reigns on November 5 in Saudi Arabia at the Crown Jewel event.
WWE signed Paul to a deal that will see him wrestle several times a year and now is looking to get a return on its investment by booking the YouTuber/boxing star in a headlining position with its top star.
However, Drew McIntyre disagrees with the booking decision, although he understands why it's being done. While speaking with MySanAntonio, McIntyre stated that he believes Paul will get smashed by Reigns in a spectacle.
“Maybe Logan Paul will be champion. I doubt it. I understand why it is happening and I get celebrity involvement, especially the ones that give their all – and we have had a few. Logan Paul has done a great job, but I don’t know about fighting for the titles. I think the titles should be reserved for people who worked up the card and put the time in. It will be a spectacle and Roman will smash him and people will talk about it. That is what it is all about, I guess. I just have a different view of the titles as I talked about leading into the match with Roman. The elders sent someone to take me out, they sent the entire Bloodline, but I guess I have to take out Kross first and work my way back up the card again because that is what Drew always does. I am glad my fans see that.
They know how hard I work and would do the championship schedule while Roman does the part-time schedule. They know I am there when I am sick and hurt. The food poisoning I had last week is all over the internet. I am showing up to TV, getting an IV and still performing. That is who I am, and I will get a shot at the title. I will go around to the entire Bloodline family knock on their door, then apologize and then beat them up. Then I will go to the Rock’s do and say, ‘I am so sorry. You are such a great guy. Your mother is awesome. She looked after my wife at WrestleMania all those years ago, but I am going to have to beat you up because you might show up while I am fighting Roman. I have to take out the whole family. I am sorry.’”
McIntyre will wrestle Karrion Kross in a strap match at next Saturday’s Extreme Rules event.
