Roman Reigns vs Logan Paul: Youtuber-turned-wrestler exits WWE Crown Jewel in wheelchair
Youtuber-turned-wrestler Logan Paul‘s widely praised performance at WWE Crown Jewel was marred by severe knee injuries suffered during his match.
The social media star was only in his third WWE match; however, he came dangerously close to ending Roman Reigns‘ title reign on multiple occasions.
Even the presence of his brother, Jake Paul, to counteract any interference from The Bloodline was insufficient to secure him a stunning victory.
Paul gave it his all, but The Tribal Chief’s Superman punch and spear ensured the belts remained around Reigns’ waist.
Paul, a YouTube star who has dabbled in boxing and wrestling, revealed after his main event match in Saudi Arabia with Roman Reigns that he tore his meniscus and MCL, as well as possibly tearing his ACL. Paul stated, alongside a photo of him icing his right knee, that he was injured halfway through the 26-minute match.
Following the event, Paul updated his social media. The influencer tweeted that he had torn, “the meniscus, the MCL (medial collateral ligament), and probably the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament)”.

Paul, 27, received a lot of praise for his performance against Reigns in the match for the WWE Universal championship. The defending champion, Roman Reigns, eventually won, but Paul put on an impressive performance in only his third professional wrestling match.
An appearance by Logan’s brother, Jake Paul, ‘The Problem Child’, who recently defeated former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in professional boxing, was one of the match’s highlights.

Logan also demonstrated incredible athleticism on several occasions, including a move in which he jumped from the top rope onto Reigns, who was lying outside the ring on a table, all while filming the move on his cell phone.
Though Paul was seriously injured, he promised to keep his fans updated, but it may be months before he returns to the ring, and his brother Jake shared a video of him leaving Saudi Arabia in a wheelchair.
