Logan Paul – Undisputed WWE Champion. That’s what you see in front of you. What do you think? What’s your immediate reaction?
As you know by now, Logan Paul will challenge current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on November 5th at the Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
Roman Reigns is an amazing champion. Logan Paul is an internet sensation. He was also involved in boxing and martial arts. But does that qualify him to fight for Roman’s honor? As “Stone Cold” Steve Austin would probably reply, “Hell no!”
Jerry “The King” Lawler seems to agree.
“There’s no way Logan Paul is going to win – no way,” Lawler told me. “Logan Paul’s victory is just as likely as Andy Kaufman’s return after his supposed death. I’ll tell you what. Everyone knows I’m an avid Coca-Cola collector and it’s my favorite drink (the King added that he’s never tasted an alcoholic drink). If Logan beats Paul Roman Reigns – and I’m so sure he won’t – I’ll switch from Coke to Pepsi! You heard me right. This is an ultimate sacrifice for me. So serious I am about the outcome of this game.”
You never know what’s going to happen in the world of professional wrestling. However, nobody seems to be on Logan Paul’s train.
A lot of people I spoke to thought it was going to be a good game but can’t believe Logan is the winner. I ran this past the WWE Hall of Famer Booker T. His words came out without hesitation.
“Willie, all I can say is OMG! I won’t beat Logan Paul, but he won’t win this Crown Jewel match. He won’t beat Roman Reigns. He will put in a decent performance but he will not win. Maybe he can become a champion down the line if he keeps wrestling – but that line isn’t right now. Roman Reigns retains – point at the end!”
Jerry Williams was a columnist for a British wrestling publication that I worked for many, many years ago. I asked him if Logan wins, what happens next?
“I’m going to paraphrase Triple H and say it’s best for business,” he said. “Can you imagine the tremendous publicity this would generate for WWE around the world? It will earn them Logan Paul’s millions of social media followers. I don’t see anything wrong with that in the short term, but Roman needs to get that title back pretty quickly. That’s for sure.”
I have my own theory about this game. It’s kind of “freaky” but creative and controversial. It’s a way for Logan Paul to win but not take the title. What happened if …
The Usos’ interference in favor of Reigns kind of backfires. It ends with Roman getting pinned.
At this point, Reigns is furious that the well-planned interference has backfired terribly. While arguing with the ref and maybe the Usos, Logan Paul is caught off guard and KO’d with the Money in the Bank briefcase and quickly pinned. Yes – Austin Theory is the new undisputed WWE Universal Champion!
Neither the champion who came to defend the title – Roman Reigns – nor the unlikely challenger – Logan Paul have the gold!
Austin Theory is the new WWE Undisputed Champion!
What a “theory” right?
