Logan Paul noted that the injury happened halfway through his Crown Jewel match with the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns defeated Paul in a five-star match to cap the premium live event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The fact that he wrestled with torn ligaments for more than 10 minutes makes his match all the more impressive and something we won’t forget in the coming time. Numerous analysts praised Logan’s efforts and sheer will. Jake Paul, Logan’s brother, made a surprise appearance during the fight.

Paul signed a multi-year deal with WWE on June 30. His first WWE match was before he signed with the promotion, it was at WrestleMania 38. He and The Miz defeated Rey and Dominik Mysterio, though, after the match, The Miz hit Paul with the Skull Crushing Finale. For his second match, Paul got his revenge against The Miz at SummerSlam after he pinned Miz with his own move, the Skull Crushing Finale.
Paul and Reigns ultimately put on an incredible show. In the end, the Tribal Chief stayed as champion and extended his time with the belt to 797 straight days.
Also on the cards was a match between WWE superstar Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley, in which Lesnar was the crowned winner. The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship was won by Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky, who defeated Alex Bliss and Asuka.
There was also a match between Drew McIntyre and Karrion Kross where McIntyre took the win, while Braun Strowman defeated Omos, The Usos beat The Brawling Brutes in a tag team championship, and Bianca Belair defeated Bayley in the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.
The WWE has been holding events in Saudi Arabia since 2014. In 2019, the US organization signed an expanded agreement with the Kingdom’s General Entertainment Authority (GEA) to have two major events held in the country every year.
The WWE said at the time that the agreement “demonstrates WWE and GEA’s commitment to bring sports entertainment to the region and supports Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”
