Social media star and sometimes boxer Jake Paul has hit back at Paul Heyman after Heyman namedropped him on Friday Night SmackDown.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that WWE will be holding a press conference in Las Vegas to announce the main event for its upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Crown Jewel is due to take place on November 5th and will reportedly be headlined by Roman Reigns and Logan Paul.
The news comes after Logan Paul claimed on a recent episode of his Impaulsive podcast that if he was put in the ring with the Tribal Chief today he would win.
“When I watch [Roman Reigns] on TV and in the ring, I just wanna f***ing wrestle the guy,
That’s what I do … I did it with Floyd Mayweather. My second opponent [in boxing] was Floyd f***ing Mayweather … I love competing at the highest level as soon as I get into the thing.”
“You’re not gonna like this. You put me against Roman Reigns right now, I think I win.”
Logan Paul was confronted by Paul Heyman on SmackDown on Friday night for his comments and during Heyman’s soliloquy, he referenced Paul’s brother Jake Paul’s upcoming bout with MMA legend Anderson Silva.
Jake Paul replied in kind on social media noting that his brother could “KO” Reigns easily:
“No disrespect Heyman but Logan would KO your boy Roman Reigns easy …@WWERomanReigns”
No disrespect Heyman but Logan would KO your boy Roman Reigns easy …@WWERomanReigns
