MAJOR Title change takes place at WWE Crown Jewel 2023

Last updated

In a surprising turn of events at WWE Crown Jewel 2023, the wrestling world witnessed a significant title change that has sent shockwaves throughout the industry.

Rey Mysterio, a seasoned wrestler and a stalwart of the WWE, put his United States Championship on the line against the social media sensation, Logan Paul.

This wasn’t just any match; it was a contest between a seasoned professional and a rising star looking to cement his place in the wrestling world.

Logan Paul: Journey to the Title win at WWE Crown Jewel 2023

Logan Paul’s journey in WWE has been nothing short of dramatic. After facing setbacks in major matches, including the 2023 Money in the Bank and his bout against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 39, many were sceptical about his chances against Mysterio.

His previous year’s attempt at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns also ended in disappointment. However, the match at Crown Jewel was set to be a defining moment in his career.

The Match: A Rollercoaster of Emotions

The contest between Mysterio and Paul was predictably thrilling. Paul, in his typical style, tried various tactics to put Mysterio away.

However, the Hall of Famer proved to be a tough nut to crack. In a desperate move, Paul’s entourage handed him a pair of brass knuckles, reminiscent of his win over Ricochet at SummerSlam. But this time, LWO member Santos Escobar intervened, thwarting Paul’s initial plan.

Yet, in a dramatic twist, Paul managed to retrieve the brass knuckles and delivered a decisive blow to Mysterio as he was gearing up for a springboard after executing his signature 619 move.

This allowed Paul to pin Mysterio and clinch the United States Championship.
