Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul planned for WWE Crown Jewel

WWE will hold a press conference in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Update --

Dave Meltzer reports that 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.


Logan Paul is hyping up a big announcement for tonight's episode of SmackDown.

Ahead of appearing on SmackDown tonight, Paul sent out a tweet stating that there will be a "massive announcement" on the episode. Paul wrote: "MASSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT TONIGHT TUNE IN"

WWE looks to be building to a Roman Reigns vs. Paul match. If that does happen, November's Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia appears to be a possible destination. Neither Reigns nor Paul are advertised for October's Extreme Rules PPV.

Reigns is the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

Paul's appearance on tonight's SmackDown was set up by an exchange that happened on Twitter after Reigns was on Paul's Impaulsive podcast. After Reigns left the podcast, Paul said Reigns is the person in WWE who he wants to face.

"You put me against Roman Reigns right now, I think I would win," Paul said. "Me vs. Roman Reigns one-on-one, that's my match."

Reigns responded to Paul's comments by posting a tweet that told Paul Heyman to "handle" him.

Paul "Triple H" Levesque then invited Paul to appear on SmackDown tonight.

This will be Paul's first appearance on WWE television since he defeated The Miz at SummerSlam. It was announced this June that Paul has signed a contract with WWE.
