– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show starts with the pyros erupting then the commentators welcome us. Logan Paul then enters. Once in the ring, he tells us that he had Roman Reigns on his podcast this week, during which he said that if he wrestled him, that would be his match. He issued a challenge to Roman Reigns and will hold a press conference tomorrow in Las Vegas. So if he has balls, Roman Reigns will just have to come and face him.
We hear Paul Heyman arriving on the scene with the Usos, Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn. Heyman introduces himself and Bloodline stays ringside as he steps into the ring and shakes Logan Paul’s hand. Paul Heyman says if there’s anyone outside of WWE who could be a Paul Heyman Guy, it would be Logan Paul! He is an athlete, he fought against the greatest boxer of all time: Floyd Mayweather.
Logan Paul asks where he is coming from. Paul Heyman replies that he doesn’t care about his sporting background. All he cares about now is that Logan Paul makes the smart decision to face another person. Logan Paul says it’s just a press conference. Is Paul Heyman afraid that Logan Paul will challenge Roman Reigns and it will be for the title?
Paul Heyman brings Solo Sikoa to the ring apron, but Sami Zayn gets in the ring and tells Sikoa and Paul Heyman to take care of it. He approaches Logan Paul who punches him, the Bloodline enters the ring but Logan Paul leaves the ring! Ricochet enters and goes to challenge Sami Zayn.
