After an inspired performance against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, Logan Paul gained a lot of notoriety from the greater wrestling community. Even with no real expectations that he would have defeated Roman Reigns, the consensus is Logan Paul stepped up to the moment in Saudi Arabia.
The performance would have catapulted Logan Paul into something big for Survivor Series, the Royal Rumble or even WrestleMania 39. Unfortunately, it was initially reported that the WWE superstar had torn his ACL, MCL and meniscus during the match with Roman Reigns.

However, Jake Paul revealed during an interview with DAZN Boxing that Logan’s injury is not as bad as it was originally disclosed after Crown Jewel. According to Jake, his brother is “doing better than expected” and is “rehabbing the injury in Los Angeles.
The report details that Logan Paul did not severely injury his ACL. The injury is still significant for his MCL and meniscus, but that’s an easier healing process than a major ACL injury. Obviously, there’s a great deal of interest from WWE officials to have Logan Paul back as a performer as soon as possible, but it’s still a serious injury to return from in a contact sport.

It was recently reported that Logan Paul had asked HHH for a WrestleMania match with John Cena following the match in Saudi Arabia.

The first step is Logan’s health, which could easily force him to miss WrestleMania. However, we’ve seen tougher roads to the grandest stage of them all. Stay tuned with us to get the latest updates on Logan Paul’s status as the year comes to an end and the Royal Rumble comes into play.
