Jim Cornette is ready to go for the match between Roman Reigns and Logan Paul!
On Saturday, the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns is set to defend his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship against Logan Paul in Saudi Arabia at World Wrestling Entertainment’s Crown Jewel Premium Live Event.
On episode 455 of his “The Jim Cornette Experience” podcast, the wrestling icon would talk about the bout.
Jim Cornette would say:
“It’s going to be good. Logan Paul takes this seriously and he’s a very prideful person.
He’s been training. We saw him do way better before than what he ought to of for his level of inexperience.
They’re not going to switch the belt but they’ve given Saudi Arabia for their 50 million dollars a big main event with somebody they can say, and truthfully so, is a big American celebrity.
It’s kind of a freak show match. In terms of a celebrity from YouTube who’s dabbled in other sports and now is in wrestling, but he can compete at a high level because he’s an athlete.
It doesn’t have to sell tickets because nobody thinks he’s going to win. They’ve tried to create the doubt, ‘well if I get one good shot’. Well, you know, but he’s not.
At least they are trying to create the doubt.”
