Roman Reigns v Logan Paul: More details on plans for shock WWE title feud

Roman Reigns and Logan Paul could be set to feud in WWE

Logan Paul is set to face Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5, if reports are to be believed.

Paul interviewed the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion on his IMPAULSIVE podcast this week, which will be used as a catalyst for the feud between the two.

A match between the two, according to reports, will be taking place in Saudi Arabia at WWE Crown Jewel in November.

WWE’s plans for Logan Paul v Roman Reigns

Over the last few days, it has become clear that WWE is planning on having Logan Paul feud with The Bloodline in some capacity.

However, hours before SmackDown last night, the Wrestling Observer reported that WWE is actually planning for a huge match between Reigns and Logan at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Meltzer reported that the match will take place on November 5, with a press conference, which is set to take place in Las Vegas later on today, being used to announce it.

WWE is holding a press conference in Las Vegas this Saturday regarding the main event for its November 5 Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia. Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul is planned to headline the PPV.

The aforementioned reports were essentially confirmed by WWE during last night’s episode of SmackDown, with Logan Paul showing up to address the live crowd.

While Reigns missed the show, now that he’s signed a new contract to work fewer dates, Logan started his feud with the ‘Tribal Chief’ by mixing it up with The Bloodline.

The 27-year-old YouTube megastar also used the time to announce that the press conference is taking place tomorrow, where he is expected to formally challenge Roman.

Logan Paul & Roman Reigns press conference

WWE holding a presser to formally announce Logan v Roman is pretty unusual, and seems to be just the latest way Triple H is attempting to use the media in different ways now that he’s running creative.

Fightful Select has provided some additional information on the press conference, including details on where it’s taking place, and potentially also the reasons why it’s happening.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported that the press conference, which will be open to the public, will take place at the Resorts World Las Vegas, which WWE confirmed hours later on SmackDown.

Sapp also notes that combat sports media will already be in Las Vegas for the Canelo Alvarez v Gennady Golovkin III, and will therefore be able to attend the presser.

In addition, Fightful Select has learned the presser will take place at the Resorts World Las Vegas on Saturday, and be open to the public. There is already a ton of media in town for the Canelo-GGG trilogy fight.

How to watch Logan Paul and Roman Reigns’ press conference

It was announced during SmackDown last night that you can watch the press conference live at across all of WWE’s social media platforms at 3:30pm EST (12:30pm PST/8:30pm BST).

If you are unable to catch the press conference, GiveMeSport will keep you updated with all the biggest talking points.

It’s worth noting that, as of right now, there’s no word on if the match between Logan and Roman will be for Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal title, but that could be confirmed during the conference tonight.
