During a press conference in Las Vegas, WWE officially announced that Logan Paul will challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. 

Michael Cole kicked off the press conference and said that the press conference came about at the last minute after Logan Paul's appearance last night on Friday Night SmackDown.

Cole introduced Reigns (with The Bloodline) and Logan Paul and then Paul "Triple H" Levesque was introduced. He then announced the match for Crown Jewel. 

Hunter put over Paul's work ethic and said that Logan has earned his respect for going the distance with Floyd Mayweather. Hunter put over Reigns as someone who is on a God-tier level and is performing on a different stratosphere because he's been champion for over 2 years.

Reigns said he plans on smashing Paul at the pay-per-view and he won't go easy on him and he plans on showing him what God mode really looks like. Paul spoke on the podium and said he is a disruptor and he welcomes any challenge. He mentioned that his brother Jake will face Anderson Silva a week before Crown Jewel and this is "simply what we do." Paul said that wrestling is "my sport, my industry" because WWE is his home and that is why he called out the GOAT. 

The press conference closed with some questions and some comments from Paul Heyman talking about Logan Paul only fighting people who are over the hill. Logan took offense to what Heyman said and then a fight almost broke out between Roman and Logan put Triple H stepped in between them.
