LA Knight vs Logan Paul: The Showdown Brewing on SmackDown

One big thing: LA Knight challenges Logan Paul to face-off on SmackDown

LA Knight is ramping up his feud with United States Champion Logan Paul, calling him out to appear on tonight’s SmackDown in Chicago.

• Knight has been calling out Paul for weeks on SmackDown
• Paul has been absent from WWE programming, taunting Knight about staying in the mid-card
• Knight showed up at Paul’s Puerto Rico home to play mind games
• Knight tweeted: “Let’s see if @LoganPaul shows up to work tonight… #SmackDown”

Why it matters

This potential face-off could set the stage for a high-profile United States Championship match, pitting the rising star Knight against the celebrity crossover Paul.

By the numbers

• Paul has held the United States Championship for 213 days as of June 21, 2023
• Knight has yet to win a championship on the main roster

The bigger picture

This feud represents WWE’s ongoing strategy of blending homegrown talent with crossover celebrities to attract mainstream attention.

What they’re saying

LA Knight has been on fire lately, and a program with Logan Paul could be just what he needs to break into the upper echelon of WWE,” says Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

What’s next

If Paul appears on SmackDown, expect fireworks as these two charismatic personalities clash in the ring. A match at SummerSlam could be on the horizon if the tension continues to build.
