Logan Paul has been holding the coveted title of United States Champion for two months now and it was then confirmed on SmackDown that Kevin Owens will be his first challenger. Owens decked him with a punch and now Paul showed off his bruised face after SmackDown.
The Maverick has been making headlines both inside and outside the ring. His provocative actions, including showering with his championship belt, have sparked a range of responses from fans and critics. Despite the controversy, it’s clear that he’s relishing his time as the current champion.
In the opening bout of SmackDown’s New Year’s Revolution, Kevin Owens clashed with Santos Escobar in a hard-fought battle. The victor earned a shot at the US Title in the upcoming Royal Rumble event.
Owens would win the match and earn the right to challenge Paul for his title at the Royal Rumble. When Paul came to the ring to confront Owens, Kevin Owens punched him right in the face.
The Maverick took to his Instagram story and uploaded a photo of himself after the punch, revealing that the right side of his face was bruised due to Kevin Owens’ attack.

We will have to wait and see whether Logan Paul will end up defeating Kevin Owens and successfully retain his United States Championship at the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event on January 27th.
