In a highly-anticipated showdown set to rock the WWE Crown Jewel 2023 event in Saudi Arabia on November 4, Logan Paul, the renowned social media sensation, is poised to challenge WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio for the coveted US Championship.
This electrifying clash comes on the heels of Paul's bold challenge to Mysterio following his recent boxing bout against Dillon Dennis, with WWE swiftly confirming the epic matchup. Veteran wrestling journalist Bill Apter, a seasoned observer of the squared circle, has weighed in on this intriguing contest, suggesting that Logan Paul could make history by clinching his first WWE championship.
Apter's rationale stems from the immense promotional potential that Paul brings to the WWE, given his status as a social media megastar with a massive following in the millions. Apter opined on The Wrestling Time Machine podcast, stating, "I believe that Logan Paul will win.
After merging with the new company, it can prove to be great from the promotional point of view for WWE because he is a social media star. Wherever he goes, he will show his championship to everyone. All this will be done through his social media.
Will be in the platforms."
