The Grayson Waller Effect with special guest Logan Paul
Logan Paul says he doesn’t know why the crowd is booing him because they’ve seen him hang with every current WWE Champion in the company right now. He said when he gets the briefcase tomorrow, he could get his revenge on Seth Rollins or finish what he started with Roman Reigns.
Paul continues by noting he might not cash it in at all and just smash LA Knight in the head with the case. LA Knight interrupts and gets a huge reaction. Knight says Paul has proven a lot with what he’s been given. But he emphasizes that he hasn’t been given anything, and while he respects the fact that Paul has made a name for himself outside of WWE, he’s standing in LA Knight’s ring.
Paul fires back by saying it’s funny that Knight keeps calling himself a megastar because all he sees is a guy who was supposed to be a manager in WWE after 20 years of a lackluster career. Paul then says Knight is lucky he’s even addressing him.
Knight responds by stating that Paul isn’t listening enough, so he asks the crowd whose game it is, and they say LA Knight. Paul proceeds to insult the crowd, which brings out Santos Escobar. He says he wants to get one thing straight, as Paul thinks that he’s already won the briefcase, but he needs to win.
Escobar vows that both Money in the Bank winners will be from the LWO. Butch comes out, and rather than talking, he goes straight for Paul as everyone brawls.
