Logan Paul calls out first opponent for crazy crossover match after winning WWE United States Championship
| Last updated
Logan Paul has called out his first opponent after winning the United States Championship from Rey Mysterio at WWE Crown Jewel.
Paul secured a pinfall victory over Mysterio in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, after using brass knuckles to knock down the WWE Hall of Famer.
And 'The Maverick' secured gold in what was just his eighth WWE match, having impressed fans with his incredible feats of athleticism and the speed at which he has learned the art of professional wrestling.
Attention now turns to who Paul will defend his title against, with a litany of potential match-ups on the horizon for the social media star.
While speaking to ESPN, Paul called out music sensation Bad Bunny for a match further down the line.
He explained: "I'm going to leave that up to Triple H, but I will say one thing: Mr Bunny don't want this smoke. I'm a maverick, we eat bunnies for breakfast.
"I don't know him personally. I do listen to his music. He is excellent, excellent musician. That's what he does.
"He is good, but he's scrawny. I'm pushing 250. That is the crazy thing.
"In WWE 2K23 [video game], he has the same rating as me. Maybe I don't know anything - maybe we are the same. Maybe let's settle this in the ring."
Just 8 matches into his career, @LoganPaul has cemented his place in the world of sports entertainment... and now, he’s got the hardware to prove it.— Triple H (@TripleH) November 4, 2023

Much like Paul, Bad Bunny - a lifelong wrestling fan - has wowed viewers with his incredible in-ring performances despite his lack of experience.
He beat Damian Priest in a San Juan Street Fight in Puerto Rico this May, in what was rated as a match of the year candidate.
Given his stardom in the music world, Bunny hasn't wrestled a match since then - but it appears likely that he will return to WWE when his commitments allow.
A championship match between Paul and Bad Bunny would be historic, given that both are currently 'part-time' performers and have other major roles outside of WWE.
In the meantime, though, he may have to deal with an enraged Mysterio after the pair exchanged tense words following his victory at Crown Jewel.
Who do you think should be Paul's first opponent for the United States Championship? Let us know in the comments.
