After a triumphant victory against a mixed martial art legend, Anderson Silva, Jake Paul is also stepping into the world of professional wrestling just like his brother, Logan Paul, in the WWE.
World wrestling entertainment produces an exciting night in Saudi Arabia titled "Crown Jewel" on Saturday, 5 November 2022, at the Mrsool Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The event features predetermined professional wrestling bouts, showcasing the talent tied with ongoing storylines leading up to the event. Logan Paul was one of the marquee attractions in the event, as well as former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the opening bout of the card. In his third professional wrestling match, Paul demonstrated he could compete with the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Logan's pre-match plot stated that he was hoping for "one lucky shot" against The Tribal Chief. On a recent episode of SmackDown, he knocked out Jey Uso with one punch.
The Bloodline and Jake Paul made appearances in the over 25-minute bout before Reigns won with a Superman punch and a Spear. The match was filled with high-intense drama and entertainment featuring insane talent and athleticism from Paul, an excellent performance by Reigns, and a tease for Jake Paul facing off against one of the members of the Roman Reign stable "The Bloodline."
To begin the match, the fans got under Roman's skin. Logan landed a Buckshot Lariat-style technique, but Reigns kicked out. Logan also did an Eddie Guerrero-styled frog splash with a camera phone through the announce table, followed by a superman punch to take Reigns down. A lot of interference deterred Paul's victory against Reigns, but that's where the fun starts.
Jake Paul made his way to the ring with music while the Usos attacked the Impaulsive people in the front row. Logan attacked Reigns with a Frog Splash after Jake knocked The Usos out of the ring, but the Tribal Chief kicked out at two.
Solo Sikoa made his way to the ring, but security interrupted him. Logan connected with a flying Crossbody on Solo but was met with a Superman Punch and a Spear when he returned to the ring. Reigns won by pinfall against Logan and retained the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Roman Reigns posted a video from his private jet with the belts alongside him shortly after WWE Crown Jewel. He boasted about the triumph, claiming Logan wasn't "fortunate enough" at the VIP live event. Logan also took to social media but had a different message for fans. Logan revealed that he tore his meniscus, MCL, and perhaps ACL midway through the match but finished it.
"torn meniscus, MCL & potentially ACL happened halfway through the match. keep y'all updated."
While professional wrestling is scripted, the injuries and skills necessary to entertain a sold-out capacity arena are more visceral than what a combat sports athlete endures. Logan Paul deserves every praise for stepping in with one of the best professional wrestlers today, but his injuries will hinder a quick return to the world of combat sports.
