Logan Paul has his eyes on the prize on the other titles as well

The red brand is the home to quite a few title holders from the WWE roster. Apart from Seth Rollins, Gunther is someone who has been holding on to his title for a very long time. With being the reigning Intercontinental Champion for almost 500 days now, The Ring General has proven to be a formidable foe to anyone who came in his way. But as Rey Mysterio has pointed out, there is a possibility that Paul is feeling confident about his in-ring capabilities, especially after the boxing match. Due to this, Paul might have set his eyes on the Intercontinental Championship title now.

The 28-year-old star might challenge Gunther ahead of the Survivor Series. After all, defeating Gunther will make Logan Paul the Intercontinental Champion of WWE. Besides that, he might have eyes on another title as well. When the internet celebrity faced off against Dominik Mysterio last time, the member of The Judgment Day did not have the title on him. After seeing him grow, maybe Paul wants to challenge him as well to win the title. Defeating both father and son will make him even more formidable.

With that being said, the possibility of him challenging either of them is low, but not zero. But still, the star might have another agenda on his list.

Logan Paul could look to form alliances

Everybody knows that Rey Mysterio has the backing of the whole Latino World Order. With Carmelo’s return, the faction has grown stronger. Paul does not have any alliances as of now. To level up the playing field, he might enlist the help of another stable, Judgment Day. Dominik Mysterio had turned heel on his father and they two were at odds since then. He could prove to be a worthy ally to Logan Paul.

Now whether Dominik Mysterio and Judgment Day will right away consider joining him is still doubtful. Chances are that Mysterio might join him as they both have a common enemy, Rey Mysterio. Along with that, the stable is proficient with interrupting fights and making the person they like secure the win. So, it is obvious he might enlist their help. But what the faction asks in return will be something interesting for the viewers. Let us know in the comment section why you think Logan Paul is coming on Raw.
