Fresh from conquering the boxing arena, WWE Superstar Logan Paul is set to square off against Rey Mysterio in a high-stakes battle for the WWE United States Championship in the highly anticipated Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
This showdown comes on the heels of Paul's triumphant bout against Dillon Danis, post which, he wasted no time and openly challenged Mysterio during last Friday's riveting episode of "WWE SmackDown." Amid the electrifying atmosphere, Paul confidently strutted down to the ring, proudly touting his recent victory in the boxing sphere.
Addressing the throng of fans, he reminisced about his past conquest over Mysterio during WrestleMania 38, jesting how it seemed so distant, back when Roman Reigns was still a regular feature and LA Knight hadn't yet made his mark.
Although Paul stressed he had no personal vendetta against Mysterio, he openly covets Mysterio's coveted United States Championship belt.
