Wholesome moment fans missed when Logan Paul wrestled Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel


Back for more in Saudi Arabia, YouTube sensation Logan Paul is trading gloves for spandex.

Paul embarrassed MMA fighter Dillon Danis in a boxing fight in Manchester, and will now once again be one of the main events at Crown Jewel, having made a memorable splash in 2022.

Taking on Rey Mysterio in Riyadh, fans will be hoping for just as much excitement from the 28-year-old American as he provided last time in the Middle East.

The event in November 2022 saw Paul frog splash Roman Reigns onto a table from the top rope whilst he videoed it on his phone, making sure the moment went viral.

Thrilling fans with his display, the former Disney star went through extraordinary lengths, reportedly tearing his ACL and MCL but carrying on to entertain anyway.

The frog splash was undoubtedly the highlight of the fight, and a moment that left hearts in mouths as he flew onto Reigns, reeling in pain as his opponent laid seemingly knocked out.

However, some fans spotted a wholesome moment in the immediate aftermath, with Reigns not knocked out at all.

Knowing his inexperienced opponent had just pulled off a move that would terrify any mere mortal, ‘Leakee’ gave Paul a gentle rub on the arm to check he was OK.

Realising what was happening, Paul then made sure to brush his hand in response, showing a huge amount of respect between the two fighters.

Reigns won the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship bout in 25 minutes, and Paul was left with defeat.

He clearly didn’t depart Saudi empty handed, though, gaining the respect of his opponent and the crowd that turned out to watch.
