Logan Paul has named the WWE legend that he wants to face if he becomes the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
The matchup between Logan Paul and Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel was officially announced on September 16th and for nearly two months, WWE has been building up the possibility that Logan could win with “one lucky punch” on Reigns.
On the October 21st episode of Smackdown, Logan knocked out Roman’s cousin Jey Uso with that same “one lucky punch” while Paul Heyman has repeatedly mentioned that Logan has a metal rod in one of his fingers while Logan confirmed it as well.
During an interview with SportBible, Logan named the legendary Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the man he would want to defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against at WrestleMania 39 next April.
“Dwayne ‘The Rock Johnson’ baby. It has to be because we have so much history. We go way back and he’s larger than life man. I like taking on those types of personalities. So it has to be Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson at WrestleMania.”
It is currently known if The Rock plans to wrestle at next year’s WrestleMania Hollywood, but if he does the rumor is that Rock would face Roman Reigns.
