WWE superstars headed to Saudi Arabia once again for a Crown Jewel premium live event, a part of the 10-year partnership between The Kingdom and WWE to boost tourism and entertainment in the country. WWE officials were quite pleased with the performances of two of its rising talents at this event.
Logan Paul’s first pro wrestling match in the Middle Eastern country saw him challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Despite interference from his Impaulsive co-hosts and brother Jake Paul, Logan lost the match after being hit with a Superman Punch, followed by a spear.
Omos, on the other hand, was no stranger to fighting in Saudi Arabia, after appearing at 2021’s Crown Jewel alongside AJ styles in a match for the RAW Tag Team Championship. On Saturday, Omos faced Braun Strowman after Strowman put out a challenge to Omos in the October 19th episode of Smackdown. Omos dominated the whole match against Strowman, but a quick turn of events saw Strowman pull his Signature Powerslam and end it.
Both Paul and Omos put out very exhilarating performances and received their due praises. PW Insider reported that WWE officials were said to be “really happy” with how the Premium Live Event went, particularly with Paul and Omos.
With Paul, WWE officials were said to be praising his work and poise backstage. Regarding Omos, management has been pleased with his work at Crown Jewel and, in general lately. The feeling backstage is that he’s making good progress.
It was revealed later that Logan Paul suffered a torn meniscus, MCL, and ACL following the match. It’s unsure how bad the injury is at this time, but Paul mentioned in a tweet that he will keep us updated.
