Logan Paul Reflects On Springboard Spot With Ricochet At WWE Royal Rumble

There were plenty of memorable moments at WWE Royal Rumble, but one that stuck out to many fans was Ricochet and Logan Paul colliding in mid-air.

Ricochet and Paul stood on opposite sides of the apron and then both used the top rope to springboard across the ring, colliding in mid-air with a double clothesline.

Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Logan looked back on the spot.

"The move, we both do a springboard...when this move was pitched to me, I was like, 'is that possible?' Generally, when I have that reaction, it's a good thing because if it is (possible), it's incredible. I don't think it's been done before. The wrestling purists will perhaps come down on me for this, but I don't think it's been done before, which is what I like to do. I like to chase those moments that are really fresh and create that social media buzz. Mid-air, me and Ricochet clothesline the shit out of each other at 1000 miles an hour and then, when we landed, because we're falling from seven, eight feet, I crawl out of the ring, I have some time there to sit on the edge. Someone gave me PRIME, shoutout to that person. Got back in the ring and managed to finish it," he said.

Logan managed to be one of the final three in the match before he was eliminated by Cody Rhodes.

Backstage, Paul's girlfriend Nina Agdal was worried about him, especially coming off a Grade 3 MCL tear that he suffered at WWE Crown Jewel.

"I told her in the room, 'I just have to tuck my chin.' Every wrestler I passed on the way out was like, 'tuck your chin.' She's like, 'this is a thing, you knew it was a thing, and you didn't do it? You moron.' Look, I'm learning as I go. It's hard. I'll be honest, none of it matters because I eliminated Seth Rollins," said Logan with a laugh.

Roman Reigns also told Logan's co-host Mike backstage that Logan would one day learn to tuck his chin.

Cody Rhodes would go on to win the WWE Royal Rumble, last eliminating Gunther. He will now challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 39.
