Logan Paul Reveals Dangerously Performed Move on Rey Mysterio at WWE Crown Jewel
Logan Paul, the controversial social media star and YouTuber, has made waves in the wrestling world after opening up about a dangerous move he performed on Rey Mysterio at WWE Crown Jewel. This revelation has sparked discussions among fans and critics about Logan’s role in the WWE and his potential future in the company.
Despite only having a few matches under his belt, Logan has showcased significant growth as a performer in the ring since his debut in the WWE. He has proven himself to be a formidable athlete, capable of holding his own against some of the best wrestlers in the business. His efforts and dedication to his craft earned him a United States Championship opportunity against Rey Mysterio at Crown Jewel, where he emerged victorious and secured his first title in the WWE.
During the match, Logan performed a springboard moonsault on Mysterio, a move that was widely regarded as dangerous and risky. However, Logan appeared unfazed by the potential consequences of the move. In a recent episode of his podcast, “Impaulsive,” he reflected on the experience, describing the springboard moonsault as one of the craziest moves he had ever attempted in his life.
“I knew this was going to be a life moment for me. Rey Mysterio — the greatest luchador of all time — is in my arms, and I’m about to send a backflip that I’ve never done before… I’ve never done that before, ever. We just sent it, and thank God it was okay,” Logan shared.
Despite the success of the match, Logan expressed a desire to continue honing his skills and training at the WWE Performance Center. He also expressed his eagerness to make more appearances on “Monday Night RAW” and “SmackDown,” highlighting his willingness to take on risky and daring maneuvers in the ring.
“I’d like to go to the PC and start training, maybe make some more appearances on ‘Monday Night RAW’ and ‘SmackDown,’ so I can get that respect, and maybe get that experience. The one thing I can do, and I’m excited to do, is anything risky. I’m ba**sy, I don’t give a f***. I’ll send it,” he stated.
The discussion surrounding Logan’s performances in the WWE took a more serious turn when he addressed a botched move that occurred during his match with Rey Mysterio at Crown Jewel. While the match itself was met with praise from fans and critics, one particular moment stood out due to the potential danger it posed to Mysterio.
During a springboard moonsault attempt by Mysterio, the move appeared to go awry, putting Mysterio at risk of a potentially fatal injury. In a display of quick thinking, Logan managed to intervene and turn the situation into a powerslam, potentially preventing a catastrophic accident in the ring.
Reflecting on the botched move during his podcast, Logan took responsibility for the incident and acknowledged the gravity of the situation.
“Upon assessing my performance, while I think I did save Rey Mysterio, I think I also almost killed Rey Mysterio. I think I was too far back for the move, and I think he didn’t clear enough ground for the move. That is what happened. I was too far back, and he didn’t clear enough ground. We both, I think, made a mistake, and I had to catch him. I had to catch him. And I wasn’t going to not catch him, so like, truthfully, while I like the headlines, and I like being gassed up like this, I was just doing my job,” he admitted.
The revelation of the potential danger faced by Mysterio during the match has ignited discussions about the responsibilities of performers in ensuring the safety of their opponents in the ring. It has also raised questions about the level of experience and training required for individuals transitioning from other forms of entertainment into the world of professional wrestling.
