At WWE Crown Jewel 2022 Logan Paul walked into the biggest match of his short WWE career as he took on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Despite only competing in two matches prior to his match in Saudi Arabia, Paul had impressed fans and critics alike with his performances at WrestleMania 38 and SummerSlam.
That’s not to say that the star swaggered into battle on his own. The YouTube star had brought backup in the form of his brother Jake Paul, although the latter was absent from ringside as the match began. As were Jimmy and Jey Uso.

For much of the match, Logan Paul more than held his own against his illustrious opponent, pulling off a series of impressive high-flying moves in the process. At various intervals, Paul pulled out a standing Moonsault, top rope cross-body, and even a Buckshot Lariat.
However, the true high-point came when he hit a stunning Frog Splash from the top rope through Reigns and the announce table below while recording the move on his phone. In the aftermath of the leap, The Usos finally made their presence felt by attacking Paul’s entourage. This brought Jake Paul to the ring who quickly dispatched Jimmy and Jey with one punch each. However, not everyone was happy to see Jake.
Posting on Twitter, YouTube star KSI wrote that the match which had been enjoying, was ruined by his involvement.

KSI has history with the Paul family having battled Logan to a draw in an amateur white-collar boxing match in 2018, before beating his rival in a professional fight a year later via split decision.
Back at Crown Jewel it was Roman Reigns who picked up the win after delivering a huge Superman Punch followed up by a Spear. The Bloodline stood tall at the top of the ramp to close the show.
