The appearance from Jake Paul at Crown Jewel came as no surprise to most fans, as Logan Paul spoke prior about the potential of Jake Paul following his footsteps and getting into World Wrestling Entertainment.
“Truthfully, I think it’s inevitable. I’m biased, but I think what we’re doing is incredibly exciting, at least for me, personally, it is incredibly exciting … If I were watching two brothers take over, and I use that word intentionally, take over two highly entertaining sports, boxing and wrestling in a way that has never been done before, my curiosity would be piqued. We’re making history as we speak, and I think Jake’s crossover into WWE is inevitable, and bro, I need a bloodline. Roman [Reigns] got his.”
At Crown Jewel during the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, Logan Paul and Roman Reigns would clash, with The Bloodline eventually coming out to attack the friends of Paul. Shortly after, Jake Paul made his debut and would get into a confrontation with the Samoan Mafia. The “Tribal Chief” would retain his title when the smoke cleared.
