Logan Paul put on another great performance at SummerSlam this past Saturday. Paul defeated tag team partner-turned-rival The Miz with a Skull Crushing Finale, but it wasn’t the finisher that stood out the most. Paul gave a frog splash to the A-Lister from the top rope all the way to the announcer’s table. That was certainly a show-stealing moment, but Logan Paul was a bit uncertain he would make it out in one piece.
The Maverick talked about the spot during the latest edition of his Impaulsive podcast. He actually had Logan Paul’s new boss, Triple H, as the special guest. Paul told listeners he didn’t know if he would make it through the big SummerSlam moment without injuring himself.
Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to make it out of that without a broken arm or leg, I swear to God. That table jump, the first time I practiced it, the stunt guy goes, ‘You are going to break both femurs…’ well because I landed too close and dude, you know what’s funny? If you guys haven’t seen the clip, I’ve littered my Instagram with it. I’m amused — I don’t know if I can say this — I’m amused by watching me do the WWE. I cannot believe it’s me, do you know what I’m saying?
When I was jumping off of that pylon onto the table, I had one thought before I made the final leap, I swear to God. I’m looking around at this stadium and I’m like, this is it. This is a moment that can make or break a career. Is this what he can do? What is he capable of? And I go, my life’s been going so good. I did great in WrestleMania. I’m gonna jump and break both my femurs right now. I go, this is the end of my career, f*ck it and then just f*cking nailed it [Paul laughed]. I couldn’t believe it bro!
Paul also said he wants to do much more in WWE. It seems that he is “addicted” to the world that Vince McMahon built and recently departed from. The Raw superstar found his calling in the sports entertainment juggernaut. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for him.
