Paul Heyman wouldn’t be surprised if Shawn Michaels’ legendary finisher is used by Roman Reigns’ WWE Crown Jewel 2022 opponent Logan Paul.
On Saturday, the YouTube sensation will challenge Reigns for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship in Saudi Arabia. Michaels, a two-time Hall of Famer and NXT’s chief creative officer, recently trained with the 27-year-old in the ring and appeared on his IMPULSIVE podcast.
Heyman, Reigns’ special counsel, predicted on Corey Graves after the bell show that Paul could use Sweet Chin Music:
“Logan Paul’s practice with HBK, Shawn Michaels, which means, okay, he’s bringing Sweet Chin Music, he’s gonna do a kip-up, he’s gonna be even more flamboyant, and he’s gonna bounce off the ropes in using momentum and speed. And there’s a thing about boxing: speed kills, so speed is going to be very alluring to Logan Paul.”
Paul has used several legendary moves in his short WWE career so far, including Eddie Guerrero’s Three Amigos suplexes. He performed The Miz’s own finisher, the Skull-Crushing Finale, on The A-Lister to defeat his former tag team partner at SummerSlam in July.
Paul Heyman on whether Shawn Michaels’ help will be enough for Logan Paul
Although Paul Heyman sees Logan Paul as a future world champion, he still expects Roman Reigns to retain his titles at Crown Jewel 2022.
Reigns’ closest ally is confident that the undisputed WWE Universal Champion will defeat his latest opponent in style:
“The tribal leader is going to hold on and the tribal leader is going to look for an opening,” Heyman continued. “The tribal leader is going to entertain the people in Riyadh, and [fans] watch what’s happening in Riyadh, and he’s going to give you a show, a show that no other sports artist can give you.”
Reigns will be supported at Crown Jewel 2022 by Heyman, The Usos and Solo Sikoa. Logan Paul’s brother, YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, will accompany the challenger.
