After weeks of speculation, it’s now official. Jake Paul will be in the corner of his brother Logan when he takes on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel 2022.
The confirmation came from Jake Paul himself as he appeared at the WWE Crown Jewel press conference. Jake hyped up his brother and tipped him to defeat Reigns, especially now that he has backup. However, not to be outdone, Roman Reigns and Special Counsel Paul Heyman countered by bringing out The Usos and Solo Sikoa.
The Usos are scheduled to defend their Unified WWE Tag Team Titles at the same event against Ridge Holland and Butch of the Brawling Brutes.
Jake Paul Flying High
The younger Paul brother is currently flying high after defeating MMA legend Anderson Silva in a boxing bout on October 29th. The star earned the win via unanimous decision.
It had long been rumoured that Jake would be following in his brothers footsteps and heading to WWE, with the match at Crown Jewel seen as the ideal opportunity.
Speaking during a recent interview, Paul Heyman revealed that he tried to get Logan Paul involved with WWE more than two years ago while he was Executive Director of Monday Night Raw. The former ECW boss explained that he pitched a scenario that would have ended in a match at the Royal Rumble, Survivor Series or SummerSlam.
