Logan Paul became one of WWE’s biggest surprises as his athletic ability immediately made him worth talking about in the company. His matches against Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and others further raised his stock to a level that he is well-liked by many people now. That said, it appears Paul felt fans disrespected him at WWE Money In The Bank.
The Maverick was one of the participants in the Money In The Bank ladder match and proved why he belongs in Vince McMahon’s company due to his various athletic feats. This includes some dangerous spots, including a splash onto Damian Priest. Despite his best efforts, Logan Paul couldn’t pull off the win.
Logan Paul and Ricochet created a great moment at the Royal Rumble as they collided in midair, but the ‘viral moment’ turned out to be major botch as they narrowly avoided danger. WWE got people talking about the spot, but not in the way they had intended.
While speaking on his IMPAULSIVE podcast, Logan Paul addressed fans booing him throughout the match. Paul stated that fans simply disrespected him despite all the efforts he made to entertain them.
“These fans go so hard. They have no respect for what I do. I’m sacrificing my body out there. I jumped onto Damian Priest on a ladder, frog-splashed him, and bounced off this human like a trampoline. I felt his rib cage crush under the weight of my 60-inch box jump. They started chanting, ‘You still suck. You still suck.”
WWE also made a last-minute change to Logan Paul’s storyline due to the botched spot. It remains to be seen how WWE will book Logan Paul and Ricochet’s feud, as their feud has been slowly building up ever since the Royal Rumble match back in January of this year.
