Logan Paul is now a wrestling champion, ’cause the dude just won a major WWE event in Saudi Arabia… which saw him raise a gold belt in glory.
The YouTuber-turned-athlete competed Saturday in WWE’s Crown Jewel over in Riyadh — and his match against Rey Mysterio was the main event … one that he ultimately emerged victorious from after taking a pummeling in the ring.
There was a lot of back and forth between and RM … and a lot of body slams. In the end, Logan won by “punching” Rey after he jumped toward him from the ropes — which knocked Rey out cold. The reason … LP had quickly/stealthily thrown on a pair of brass knuckles.
Once Rey was down, Logan went to pin him … and he successfully held him for 3 seconds.
It’s a big moment for Logan, especially considering he’s relatively new to the wrestling biz — remember, he only officially joined in 2022 … and now, he’s already a straight-up champ. Of course, all this WWE stuff is completely preordained/staged … so, impressive to a point.
Still, we’re sure Logan’s stoked about it … ’cause him winning big now means he’ll probably have a long, storied future in the promotion, assuming his body can hold up. All these storylines might be bogus — but the damage pro wrestlers endure is most certainly real.
FWIW, there’s also his boxing career that’s running parallel to all this … and there, too, he’s finding quite a bit of success. Remember, he’s fresh off a win against Dillon Danis.
Sounds like the deck is clear for Logan to focus on the WWE for now … WrestleMania is half a year away, and as of now — he doesn’t have any major fights scheduled in the near future
