WWE Crown Jewel 2022 took place on November 5th and was headlined by the clash between Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Logan Paul.
While the show, and especially the main event were received well by fans, it appears that it was also deemed a success by the company.

The main event clash between Roman Reigns and Logan Paul captured the imagination of fans, with the YouTube star again impressing in-ring. Despite the bout being only his third match in WWE, Paul pushed Reigns all of the way, although he was eventually pinned following a Superman Punch and a Spear. His performance was even more impressive given he tore his ACL and MCL during the clash.
Elsewhere, Brock Lesnar defeated Bobby Lashley via a somewhat fortune pin after being trapped into the Hurt Lock and unable to escape. Damage CTRL also regained the Women’s Tag Team Titles just five days after losing the gold to Alexa Bliss and Asuka on Raw
