WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett has made the case for the unlikely scenario of Logan Paul defeating Roman Reigns for his championship at Crown Jewel.
Jeff Jarrett was infamously part of the match that saw Hollywood star David Arquette become WCW World Champion in 2000. The company got a lot of attention from the mainstream media but it was widely panned by wrestling fans and less than a year later WCW shut its doors.
Speaking on his My Way podcast, Jeff Jarrett suggested why WWE might be tempted to pull a similar trick at Crown Jewel and have Logan Paul hit his one lucky punch and defeat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship but ultimately he thinks they won’t:
“The audience, in general, whether it’s my 16-year-old son or daughter or whoever it may be, they’re consuming their content on their phones. YouTube. Twitter… That’s what the Paul brothers [have mastered.] They weren’t on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ or ‘The Voice’ or some kind of athletic [show.] They got over on social media, and now they’re bringing that to a televised product.”
“The Paul kid becoming champion, I think would work, in every kind of way. Do I think they’re going to do it? No. I just don’t think they’ll switch the title in Saudi [Arabia.] But look, online audiences are talking about it.”
