Unexpected No-Show: WWE Star’s Foiled Plan to Confront Logan Paul

Logan Paul upset Rey Mysterio to secure the WWE United States Championship at Crown Jewel 2023, using brass knuckles to defeat the Hall of Famer and score the most significant victory of his career to date.

Possibly, Karrion Kross could emerge as Paul’s next rival in the WWE. During the SmackDown preparations last week, the former NXT Champion was set to make his return. However, those plans were reportedly scrapped at the eleventh hour.

Having last appeared on the blue brand on August 11, 2023, when he lost to AJ Styles, Kross has been out of the spotlight. He recently shared a video of himself stealthily observing Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes from the shadows.

Karrion Kross was a significant project for Triple H during his NXT run. He was portrayed as an unstoppable antagonist. Kross claimed his first NXT Championship by defeating Keith Lee at TakeOver XXX but had to vacate the title due to injury.

It remains uncertain whether Kross will be Logan Paul’s initial challenger for the United States Championship on WWE SmackDown this week. Sportskeeda will offer complete coverage of the show as it unfolds.

Will Logan Paul make an appearance on WWE SmackDown tonight?

As of now, it has not been confirmed if Logan Paul will feature on WWE SmackDown tonight. Following his momentous victory over Rey Mysterio at Crown Jewel 2023, Paul posted several explicit photos of himself with the championship.

Please note, Rey Mysterio is anticipated to second Carlito in his clash against Bobby Lashley tonight on SmackDown. Several weeks ago, Lashley and The Street Profits assaulted Carlito during SmackDown. Whether Carlito will emerge victorious over his long-standing rival remains to be seen.

Do you think Maverick is showing up tonight on SmackDown? Sound off in the comments section below.
