In a surprising turn of events, Logan Paul, the controversial YouTube sensation turned WWE superstar, will be noticeably absent from this year’s WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. Paul, who made waves in the professional wrestling world with his rookie year in WWE, had previously headlined last year’s Crown Jewel event in a match against Roman Reigns, earning praise from the Saudi audience for his performance.
However, it seems that Paul’s wrestling journey has hit a temporary roadblock as he won’t be part of the upcoming Crown Jewel show, scheduled for November 4th. This development comes after his absence from the Night of Champions event earlier this year in May, which was also held in Saudi Arabia.
Instead of focusing on WWE, Logan Paul is currently gearing up for a different kind of showdown. He’s set to face off against MMA fighter Dillon Danis in a boxing match scheduled for October 14th at the AO Arena in Manchester, England. This fight has taken precedence in Paul’s career, with WWE Crown Jewel taking place just 20 days after the boxing contest.
Despite Paul’s controversial presence in WWE and his use of brass knuckles to secure a victory over Ricochet at SummerSlam, the Maverick has expressed his desire to win a championship in the Stamford-based promotion. Whether his absence from Crown Jewel is a strategic move or a sign of his priorities shifting towards the world of boxing remains to be seen.
Ricochet’s Loss to Logan Paul: WWE Announcer Raises Questions
The fallout from Logan Paul’s victory over Ricochet at SummerSlam continues to reverberate within WWE. Samantha Irvin, WWE ring announcer and fiancée of Ricochet, recently spoke out about her partner’s controversial loss to the Maverick.
In the highly-anticipated opening match of SummerSlam, Logan Paul resorted to using brass knuckles to knock out Ricochet and secure the victory. Following the win, Paul didn’t miss the opportunity to taunt Ricochet and the WWE Universe, further fueling the controversy surrounding his wrestling career.
This victory was part of Logan Paul’s ongoing quest to capture a championship within WWE, as he previously disclosed earlier this year. However, despite his undeniable in-ring abilities, the Maverick has yet to claim a title in the Stamford-based promotion.
As the wrestling world continues to speculate about Logan Paul’s future in WWE, his absence from the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event has only added to the intrigue. Wrestling fans around the world are left wondering if Paul’s foray into boxing is a temporary detour or a sign of his shifting priorities away from the squared circle.
