Logan Paul sets his sights on WWE championship glory at WWE Crown Jewel. Following his victory over Dillon Danis in a boxing match at MF x DAZN X Series 10, Paul declared his intention to challenge Rey Mysterio for the WWE United States Championship. On the October 20, 2023, episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Paul confronted the audience, emphasizing his prior victory over Mysterio at WrestleMania 38 alongside The Miz.
Expressing disdain for Mysterio’s respect and legacy, Paul asserted his need for the WWE United States Championship. In a bold proclamation, he declared his intent to become another “deadbeat dad” conqueror at WWE Crown Jewel on November 4. Responding to the challenge, Mysterio acknowledged the resemblance between Paul and his son, Dominik, but accepted the challenge, vowing to humble Paul despite the challenges of facing family in the ring. In a surprising turn, the two competitors shook hands before parting ways.
