In preparation for his title match at Crown Jewel, only the third since joining the company, Logan Paul trained with none other than the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels and it is rumored that Paul may well become a protégé of Michaels.
Paul has an extensive athletic background, despite being more well-known as a YouTube star, he was an All-Star linebacker on the football team in 2012 at Westlake High School and qualified for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association 2013 Division I Wrestling Individual Championships.
The match between Reigns and Paul was explosive, with Reigns being unable to take down the much younger Paul as he continued to hold his own against the champion. Paul managed to land a few “lucky” punches but failed to take down the Tribal Chief.
During the match Paul had his moments where he dominated Reigns, giving him time to stop for a sip and to take a video of his daring jump onto Reigns as he lay on the announcer’s table.
WWE’s Head of Creative, Triple H, is looking at the future of Logan Paul in the promotion and was unapologetic about giving Paul the opportunity to win the biggest belt in the wrestling world. Triple H is ready to have Paul join WWE for a long time to come.
