Jake Paul set to make WWE debut this weekend

This Saturday, a week after improving to 6-0 as a professional boxer, Jake Paul will make his WWE debut.

Paul defeated UFC superstar Anderson Silva in an eight-round boxing match in Glendale, Arizona, by unanimous decision. Later he called out both Nate Diaz and Saul Canelo Alvarez as his desired next opponents.

Paul will now transfer his focus to the wrestling arena, though. He will reportedly take part in WWE’s Crown Jewel pay-per-view, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.

Logan Paul will compete in the main event on November 5 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The 27-year-old competes against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title in only his third encounter with the organization.

Reigns, who has held the title for more than 800 days, is surrounded by “The Bloodline.” This consists of his real-life cousins, Jimmy, Jey, and Solo Sikoa, as well as “Honorary Uce” Sami Zayn.

Paul Heyman is also working for him as “special counsel.” However, it seems that the presence of the older Paul’s family will provide him with a significant advantage.

Jake’s presence was alluded to in a recent WWE investors call, and it now seems that he will have some significance at Mrsool Park.

The 25-year-old appeared as a guest on the Wrestlemania 38 pre-show and seemed at ease speaking in front of the camera.

Before his brother’s major event, Paul spoke to Sports Illustrated and said:

“It’s crazy, so crazy Logan has this match. I’m so proud of him. It’s surreal he has this opportunity, and it’s serendipitous that his event and my event are happening on back-to-back weekends. We’re taking over the world. We’re the next Kardashians.”

Paul made his WWE in-ring debut at Wrestlemania 38 when he partnered with The Miz to take on Rey and Dominick Mysterio. After the A-Lister turned on him, Paul came back at Summerslam and delivered a surprising victory and performance.

For the match against Reigns, he had made suggestions that he could enlist the assistance of his brother, business partner KSI, and Impaulsive podcast co-hosts. Logan told SPORTbible: “I gotta pay my people to show up and have my back.”
