On the December 1st edition of Friday Night SmackDown Logan Paul makes an appearance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The first thing Logan Paul did is address all of his haters and friends that betrayed him where they were. He goes on to say the more hate he gets motivates him to work harder.
He also says “a champion is only as good as his challengers”. Paul explains that he and SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis have come to an agreement to find the next competitor.
Starting next week a tournament will be held to find the number one contender for the United States Championship. The competitors include Austin Theory, Bobby Lashley, Dragon Lee, Grayson Waller, Karrion Kross, Kevin Owens, Santos Escobar, and an unnamed superstar from WWE NXT.
AS Paul continues Kevin Owens interrupts and makes his way down to the ring. He tells Paul he is a nightmare in the ring and reminisces about seeing him on Vine over ten years ago. Owens said “it only took six seconds to figure out you were unbearable”.
Owens also called Prime Energy Drink junk, and tells Paul his days are numbered. As Owens goes to continue Austin Theory and Grayson Waller make their way to the ring. They says that they have a lot in common.
Theory then went on to say that Owens likes to punch people, while he is in the ring with someone who likes knocking out people. By this time Kevin Owens was over it and delivered a hard right hand to Theory.
This sent him to the outside of the ring. Who is the next number one contender for the WWE United States Championship?
