Logan Paul called the possibility of a WrestleMania match against John Cena a “dream” and revealed his intention to pitch the idea to Triple H and WWE.

During the latest episode of IMPAULSIVE, Logan Paul opened up about his early success in WWE, discussing how his matchups against “top tier” competitors are a pattern he hopes can continue to move forward.

“I’ve proven the model twice now. I’ve proven the model of a stubborn and capable internet kid versus a GOAT… When I’m paired with a top industry leader, the model works.

And while his match against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel received massive praise from industry insiders and the public, Paul seems to have his sights set on an even bigger opportunity and an even bigger opponent.

“So after the Crown Jewel event, John Cena posted me on his Instagram, then I saw a post that said he was looking for an opponent for Wrestlemania and I favorited him and replied with the eyes [emoji] because I mean honestly, I think me versus John Cena would break the internet.

The replay drew massive attention, with many commenting on their desire to see Paul take on Cena.

Paul then went on to say that he against Cena at WrestleMania would be a “dream” and that he has already messaged Triple H about the potential matchup. “It’s a dream game. At Wrestlemania, in LA next year on my birthday. Triple H, throw me a bone, give me a birthday present and let me out John Cena.

Paul then revealed that he had a meeting with WWE later this week and planned to pitch the match to them.

“This week we meet them and I’m just going to say hey, it works for me. Put me against the best you all have, I’m gonna f**king deliver, you know that for a fact. Not only will I do amazing game but i’ll put asses in seats eyeballs glued to tv that’s what i do, that’s what i know and i can promise you i’ll do it every time.

However, Paul acknowledged that – if he were to get a WrestleMania match against one of the biggest in the business – it’s likely some people would be upset.

“Since I’m an underdog, I think they have to treat my WWE career a little differently than they have with the rest of the wrestlers. The only caveat to that is that I could see how other wrestlers and other wrestling fans would throw their arms in the air.

WWE has yet to comment on the possibility of a match between Paul and Cena. However, time will tell if the two end up meeting in the ring at WrestleMania or another big PPV in the future.

YouTube star Jake Paul has taken on controversial internet personality Andrew Tate in a viral video – but will they face off in the boxing ring? Here’s everything we know so far about this shocking showdown.

Jake Paul is arguably the biggest face in the influencer boxing world right now. While he’s not credited with starting the movement (that accolade goes to KSI, Logan Paul, and Joe Weller), he certainly took the reins to make it one of the hottest fashions.

Boasting a 6-0 record after his last win over Anderson Silva, Paul is already looking forward to his next game…and many fans believe he could face Andrew Tate in the near future.

On November 10, Paul uploaded a video to Twitter that showed him confronting inflammatory online commentator Andrew Tate. The video instantly racked up thousands of views and sparked rumors that Tate could be Jake’s next opponent.

Is Jake Paul fighting Andrew Tate?

so far, nothing has been confirmed regarding a possible fight between Jake and Tate.

In fact, Jake himself wasn’t sure Tate would accept a fight with him or his brother, saying in a past podcast episode that the former kickboxer was “scared to get in the ring with any of us.” .

That being said, Paul captioned his viral Twitter video with “negotiations,” seeming to imply that these two are in talks for a potential fight.

Jake’s video also comes as a bit of a surprise to fans, who instead had their eyes on a fight between Tate and Logan Paul.

Although Logan previously dismissed any idea of ​​a fight with Tate, he has since changed his tune and even appeared to be in talks with the controversial internet star in a viral tweet thread.

However, Logan suffered a few injuries after his WWE Universal match against Roman Reigns, claiming he suffered a torn meniscus, MCL, and possible torn ACL. Given that, it makes sense that Logan might not have been able to part ways with Tate and instead pass the opportunity on to his little brother.

As of now, it’s unclear when or if these two stars will touch gloves in the boxing ring – but judging by fan responses to Jake’s faceoff video, this potential match is sure to be one. for the ages.

  • PMI needs 90% stake for mandatory minority buyout
  • PMI believes the goal can eventually be achieved
  • PMI Says Swedish Match’s Top 10 Investors Tendered Stock

Nov 7 (Reuters) – Marlboro maker Philip Morris International (PMI) (PM.N) is pushing ahead with its takeover of Swedish Match (SWMA.ST) for $16 billion despite securing just less than the stake of 90% he wanted, as the United States the band continues its move away from cigarettes.

PMI said on Monday it had secured 82.59% of the Swedish company, below the 90% level at which it can begin a mandatory purchase of the remaining shares.

The US group, which had previously said it could drop its offer if it did not reach that threshold, said it believed that level could eventually be reached and Swedish Match’s 10 largest shareholders had accepted its offer. offer.

It would mean activist investor Elliott Management, which had built a 10.5% stake in Swedish Match and opposed PMI’s bid, had tendered its shares. Elliott declined to comment.

“Our intention is still to fully privatize the company, so it is better for (Swedish Match) shareholders that they tender their shares,” PMI chief executive Jacek Olczak told Reuters.

PMI said it extended its now unconditional offer until November 25 in hopes of further increasing its stake, and Olczak said that could lead to some index funds that have not yet tendered their shares to do so. , in addition to other recalcitrants.

PMI made an offer of 106 crowns per share to buy Swedish Match in May, then raised it to 116 crowns per share in October after some investors said the initial price was too low.

The purchase of Swedish Match, with its popular ‘snus’ wet snuff products and ‘ZYN’ tobacco-free nicotine pouches, will help PMI in its stated ambition to move away from harmful cigarettes and become term a smoke-free business.

The deal will also help pave the way for PMI in the US market, where Swedish Match has rapidly expanded its business and where PMI is currently absent.

“I see strong industry logic in the combination and I see Swedish Match being able to do things with PMI in both scenarios,” Swedish Match CEO Lars Dahlgren said, indicating whether the company is delisted or remains listed. with PMI as majority shareholder.

Asked about his future with the company, Dahlgren, who has been CEO since 2008, said that remained to be seen since there was no formal agreement in place, but added that he ” enjoyed working at Swedish Match”.

Jefferies analysts said in a note to clients that to gain Elliott’s approval, PMI could potentially have promised a special dividend or a seat on its board of directors to the investor.

PMI and Elliott did not immediately respond to requests for comment on this.

According to Reuters calculations, Elliott is expected to make a profit of more than $100 million, or a return of more than 6.4%, on its investment.

John Hempton, co-founder of Sydney-based Bronte Capital, also opposed the deal, but said on Sunday he would offer his shares if Elliott had done the same.

A new episode of WWE SmackDown is almost here, and fans are ready for a night full of hard-hitting matches on the eve of Crown Jewel. The Intercontinental Championship will be on the line as Gunther defends his much-vaunted title against legend Rey Mysterio, and it’s sure to be a physical match. So will Liv Morgan’s match against Sonya Deville, as it will be a no disqualification match after Morgan’s brutal attack on Deville last week. The last confirmed match on the card is what promises to be an exciting matchup between Ricochet and LA Knight, although the Bloodline is also expected to be a factor on tonight’s show.

Mysterio recently left Monday Night Raw after Dominik turned on him and joined Judgment Day, and Triple H convinced him to join SmackDown instead of leaving WWE altogether. It didn’t take long for him to earn a title shot, emerging victorious from a Fatal 4-Way to earn a shot at Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship, and that match will take place tonight.

Meanwhile, Morgan and Deville faced off last week, and Deville appeared to be in the driver’s seat for a moment, but his chatter backfired. Instead of keeping Morgan down, it sent her into an unbalanced space, and she would end up hitting a superplex on Deville on a stack of chairs. Morgan seemed to slip into this new persona more after the match ended, and now the two stars will meet in a No DQ match tonight on SmackDown.

As for LA Knight, he was talking about a big game backstage and was confronted by Ricochet, who took him to task and called him out. Knight was too happy to oblige, and now they will go head-to-head tonight. Is this the start of a bigger feud? We’ll just have to wait and see, but if so, it should be hugely entertaining.

Although not listed in the official recap, this is SmackDown, so you can expect some Bloodline action at some point during the show. We also may see the Brawling Brutes, Braun Strowman, Legado Del Fantasma, Hit Row, and more, and you can check out the episode when it airs on FOX tonight at 7:00 PM CST.

Are you excited for WWE SmackDown? Let us know in the comments or as always you can chat all things wrestling with me on Twitter @MattAguilarCB!

Flamengo went unbeaten towards a third Copa Libertadores title after beating Athletico-PR 1-0 in the all-Brazilian final on Saturday.

Gabriel Barbosa again starred in the final by scoring the only goal in a half-full Metropolitano Stadium in Ecuador.

– Stream on ESPN+: LaLiga, Bundesliga, MLS, more (US)

Flamengo have also won in 1981 and 2019, the latter with two goals from Barbosa in the 2-1 final win over Argentine side River Plate.

Barbosa, seen as having a slim chance of playing for Brazil at the World Cup, also scored the Rio de Janeiro club’s only goal in last year’s final in the loss to Brazilian rivals Palmeiras .

Barbosa’s last goal came in the 43rd minute when Athletico defender Pedro Henrique was booked for the second time after a harsh tackle. The incident gave Flamengo more room to attack, and the goal came in the dying seconds of the first half.

Everton Ribeiro sent in a low cross from the right and Barbosa only had to drive the ball into an empty net.

En route to the final, Flamengo knocked out Tolima from Colombia, Corinthians from Brazil and Velez Sarsfield from Argentina, winning all of their matches.

Flamengo striker Pedro, who is expected to be part of Brazil’s World Cup squad, was the Copa’s top scorer with 12 goals in 13 appearances.

Flamengo, with former Chelsea and Brazil centre-back David Luiz anchoring their defence, enjoyed 73 per cent possession and created 15 chances, albeit just four on target, in winning the South American equivalent of the European Champions League.

Athletico, chasing their maiden Copa Libertadores title, couldn’t deliver a perfect send off for coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. The former World Cup-winning coach has said he is stepping down at 73. He had already won the Copa with boyhood club Gremio in 1995 and with Palmeiras in 1999.

Local authorities in Ecuador struggled to sell the 60,000 tickets for the final. Guayaquil is about 6,000 kilometers (4,000 miles) from Rio and Curitiba.

The Phillies will be the underdogs of the World Series. Good luck convincing them.

They weren’t favored to beat the Cardinals, Braves or Padres to get to this point, but they’re so hot, so loose and so confident they feel like they can beat any team n anywhere right now.

The Astros have a few distinct advantages other than home court. For one thing, it’s the most complete team in the majors. They have won 106 games and are 7-0 in the playoffs after sweeping the Mariners and Yankees.

And Houston will be better prepared with the pitching in Game 4, if not Games 3 and 4.

The Astros will likely roll with Justin Verlander and Framber Valdez in the first two games in Houston on Friday and Saturday. Some would say Verlander’s 0-6 record and 5.68 ERA in seven World Series starts indicate he can’t hit the jackpot, but that’s nonsense. He’s been his typical dominant self in his other 160 playoff rounds and is a surefire Hall of Famer.

At 39, Verlander had the best season of his career, which is saying a lot as he won the AL MVP in 2011 with 24 wins and 251 innings pitched. He went 18-4 with a 1.75 ERA and 0.83 WHIP this season, leading the American League in all three categories and the Majors in the final two.

Verlander’s average start in 2022 was basically: 6 innings, 1 run, 5 base runners, 6 strikeouts.

He went five hitless innings with 10 strikeouts against the Phils on Oct. 4 in a game that meant nothing to either team.

Valdez, a left-handed lead who has improved dramatically over the past two seasons, set the major league record this year by making 25 consecutive quality starts. From April 25 to September 18, he went at least six innings in each start, allowing three runs or less. He had the lowest home run rate in the AL and led the league with 201⅓ innings.

Valdez struggled with control issues in the first two years of his major league career, but has cut his walk rate by nearly half since 2020. He has a Ranger Suarez-like ability to induce a key double play or a pop fly when needed.

The Phillies have Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola lined up to start the first two games, though they haven’t officially announced who will be in Game 1. Wheeler would be on normal rest, but it’s at least possible the Phils could return him with Nola to give him an extra day. Nola did, after all, win a perfect game in the seventh inning at Houston on Oct. 3, the last game the Astros lost.

The counter argument would be that the Astros have recently seen Nola, while none of Houston’s best hitters have ever faced Wheeler. The only three to have seen it are catchers Martin Maldonado and Christian Vazquez and DH Trey Mancini. They are combined 1 for 10 with a single.

As for the pitching game advantage the Astros should have after the series shift to Philadelphia, Lance McCullers Jr. and Cristian Javier are in line to pitch Games 3 and 4. The Phillies have used and will use Suarez as the No. 3 starter, but Game 4 will be a bullpen game as it was in the NLCS and NLDS. Noah Syndergaard started there against the Braves, while Bailey Falter faced the Padres. Syndergaard successfully crossed the lineout once, but Falter only recorded two outs before allowing four runs. The Phils won both games.

McCullers pitched well in the game against Nola when the Phils clinched a playoff spot. The Astros have appeared in the World Series four times in the last six seasons, so the 29-year-old right-hander already has a ton of playoff experience. He has played in 18 playoff games, started 11 and has a 2.77 ERA.

The Astros are also loaded with good to big hitters. Yordan Alvarez is just as dangerous as Bryce Harper. The left-handed slugger had a monster year, hitting .306/.406/.613 with 37 homers and 97 RBIs despite missing 27 games. He then had seven points in three games in Houston’s ALDS sweep against Seattle. The Yankees hovered around him more than the Mariners, and the Phillies would be wise to do the same if need be.

Kyle Tucker is another southpaw who can hurt you with power or speed. Rookie shortstop Jeremy Pena, the hitter 2 holes behind Jose Altuve, has three doubles and three homers in 33 at-bats this postseason. Alex Bregman is one of the most disciplined hitters at the majors and had two big streaks, going 5-for-15 with a double and a homer in each round.

The bottom of the Astros’ order can be sensitive with Mancini, Maldonado and Chas McCormick. Mancini is playoff hitless and the other two offer more defense than offense, although Maldonado and McCormick hurt Gerrit Cole in Game 3 of the ALCS with a two-run homer and a two-run homer , respectively.

Minute Maid Park in Houston is hitter-friendly, especially in left field where the Crawford Boxes jut out and turn pop flies into homers. It’s not hard to imagine Harper or Kyle Schwarber putting a short, easy hit on a ball to send one into the opposite court. If one of them can do it early Friday, the Phillies might be able to quiet down another crowd and steal another game down the road. They won Game 1 of all three series.
