This weekend’s WWE show by Logan Paul, which was praised by many, came with a price.
Paul, a former YouTuber who has tried boxing and is now a professional wrestler, said on social media Saturday night that he tore his MCL, meniscus and possibly his ACL in his WWE main event match with Roman Reigns in Saudi Arabia earlier in the day.
The news came with a picture of Paul with his right knee propped up and iced.
After almost 25 minutes, Reigns, who already held the title, won the fight for the Undisputed WWE Universal championship. Paul wrote that he tore his knee halfway through the match.
His brother, Jake, a former YouTuber who beat former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a pro boxing match last week, also took part in the match.
Paul, who is 27, did a great job against Reigns even though it was only his third pro wrestling match. When he jumped from the top rope onto Reigns, who was lying on a table outside the ring, that was a risky move.
At the same time, Paul was taking a video on his phone with his left hand. Paul’s first match for WWE was at WrestleMania in April. He is signed with WWE but not as a full-time performer.
Paul fought Floyd Mayweather in a boxing exhibition in June 2021 but there was no winner.
