Roman Reigns, the undisputed WWE Universal Champion, will defend his title against Logan Paul at the upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, November 5.
After Paul confronted the Bloodline on SmackDown, the match was set during a massive press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, (September 17).
Reigns spoke alongside the members of the Bloodline (Jay and Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa, Sami Zayn, and Paul Heyman) during the press conference, while Paul spoke solo.
Paul 'Triple H' Levesque, WWE's Content Officer, spoke out, claiming that WWE is all about'spectacle and being bigger than life,' before revealing that Reigns will face Paul at Crown Jewel.
"Logan Paul is a cultural phenomenon, with over 100 million social media followers," according to him and his crew. He is the number one podcast in the world, according to Levesque.

Logan Paul is on a God tier level in many ways. "His dedication, his passion for this, everything he has done in his short time with us, he has my respect, and I don't give up easily."
Before revealing that Reigns would be his greatest challenge yet, Levesque continued to talk about Paul's boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.
"This is about God tier in our business at a whole different level," Levesque said. "There is no one in our industry that is even close to reaching the level that Roman Reigns is at right now.
"He's been a champion for more than two years, something that's rare in this era." "He's a multigenerational gifted individual, so I can say this, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, at Crown Jewel, I cannot wait for this opportunity."
After Levesque had attempted to break them, Reigns and Paul met face-to-face.
WWE Crown Jewel will be broadcast live on the WWE Network in the United Kingdom and on Peacock in the United States on Saturday, November 5.
