Logan Paul was seen backstage after his Crown Jewel victory, proudly posing with his trophy. Many WWE stars and fans, including Triple H, have lauded the YouTuber and shared images of themselves with him on social media. Surprisingly, even Logan’s biggest boxing rival put aside their feud to praise him for his title win.
Dillon Danis has recently complimented Logan Paul and looks to be shedding his bad-guy reputation. Danis retweeted a positive comment regarding Paul’s career in WWE despite their previous heated boxing encounter.
Dillon Danis praises Logan Paul’s WWE growth
The rapidity with which Logan Paul surpassed more established wrestling talents has been questioned by many. He fought the former U.S. champion to a close decision at the Crown Jewel tournament on November 4. Despite Mysterio’s best efforts, he was able to avoid being pinned on many occasions. They were both worn out, but an outsider managed to slip some brass knuckles for Logan Paul. With those, Paul knocked out Mysterio and took home the title belt.
Unexpectedly, after Logan Paul’s triumph, his old opponent Dillon Danis applauded him, stating, “Fair play. Congrats kid.”
The former Bellator fighter may be attempting an apology, but considering their earlier exchange, Paul may be unimpressed. Paul was hurt by Danis’ decision to share old images of his fiancée Nina Agdal from before they started dating. Agdal said that he was acting at Paul’s direction when she threatened to sue Danis and seek a restraining order against him. Paul has yet to tweet back to Danis after he praised him.

Paul gloated to ESPN about his win and credited his preparation for the match for his success. While Paul may not become a full-time WWE wrestler anytime soon, he did tell ESPN that he plans to feature more often for the company in the future. After all, he’s responsible for protecting his crown.
