In an unexpected twist for wrestling fans, social media sensation and boxer, Logan Paul, is slated to go head-to-head with WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio for the much sought-after United States Championship. This electrifying match-up is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia during the highly anticipated Crown Jewel event on November 4th.
Logan Paul, who recently secured a boxing victory against Dillon Danis, is no stranger to the wrestling arena. Although he's primarily known for his online presence and boxing ventures, Paul has previously faced off against Rey Mysterio in the WWE ring.
Recalling their past encounter, Paul confidently stated, "I've already triumphed over Rey Mysterio once in my inaugural WWE match. A lot has shifted since then, but the memories remain." During the latest SmackDown episode, the atmosphere was thick with anticipation as both stars formally agreed to their upcoming bout.
This event marks a significant milestone for Paul as he continues his pursuit of a championship title in the wrestling domain. Not one to mince words, Logan further remarked on his journey, mentioning his recent engagement and his evolution as a bona fide WWE superstar.
"While Rey Mysterio carries a legacy of respect and a storied career, I have been carving out my own legacy," Paul asserted. He emphasized his aim for the US Championship, hinting at the respect and legacy it embodies. However, Mysterio, known for his iconic mask and unparalleled agility in the ring, didn't hold back in his response.
The wrestling legend acknowledged Paul's brash confidence, suggesting that he could benefit from a lesson in humility. "Logan might have a wide reach on social media, but in the WWE ring, he'll find that I won't hesitate to take him down," Mysterio warned.
