After further assessment, Jake Paul has given an insight on how serious the injury Logan Paul suffered at Crown Jewel is.
Logan Paul, in only his third professional wrestling match, battled Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel. Although he came up short in the contest, he made many memorable moments and was even joined at ringside by ‘The Problem Child’ Jake Paul.
Taking to social media after the event, Logan Paul revealed that he had suffered an injury midway through the match which he had carried on through, but would need assessment and likely have quite a substantial recovery period.
However, Jake Paul has revealed in an interview with DAZN that the prognosis for his brother may not be quite as bad as first feared.
He’s doing better than expected. They thought it was [an ACL injury], but it just turned out to be the MCL and Meniscus, which is better. He’s rehabbing it in LA and hoping for the best.
Continuing on, ‘The Problem Child’ commented on the possibility of a WrestleMania match for himself against John Cena.
After the Crown Jewel event, John Cena posted about me on his Instagram. And then I saw an article saying he’s looking for an opponent at WrestleMania. I favorited it, responded with “the eyes”. I mean, truthfully, I think me vs. John Cena would break the internet. I texted Triple H right away, ‘do you want to break the internet again?’ That’s a dream matchup, dude: at WrestleMania, in LA, on my birthday. Triple H, throw me a bone, give me a birthday present, let me take out John Cena. And that’d be crazy.
I think that’s the model I’m going to pitch to WWE, to give you an insight into what our meetings look like” he added. “This week, we’re meeting with them, I’m just going to be like, ‘Hey, this works for me. Put me up against the best y’all have, I’m gonna f****** deliver. You know that for a fact. Not only to put on an amazing match, but I’m going to put asses in seats and eyeballs glued to the television.
