Logan Paul Details Botched Move With Ricochet – Logan Paul competed in the Men’s Money in the Bank Match at WWE Money in the Bank in London, England, on July 1. Damian Priest emerged victorious, but Paul was involved in a viral moment, as he and Ricochet crashed through a table in a scary moment during the match.
Speaking on Impaulsive, Paul reflected on his experience at WWE Money in the Bank.
“Guys, I’m a little tired. We’re in London, I literally just got done doing Money in the Bank. Ima little beat up. Money in the Bank ruined my life, I lost, and I’m a wanker, I guess. 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,” Paul said.
Paul then highlighted the way fans were creative with their chants at WWE Money in the Bank. He shared his belief that being called a “wanker” was the equivalent of a kid calling someone a wiener. When asked whether he gets mad when the fans chant that he’s a “wanker”, Paul noted that he didn’t.
“I don’t. I think they’re having fun. I think they’re having fun making fun of me, and that makes me have fun,” he said.
The viral spot where Paul and Ricochet crashed through a table came up in the conversation. Paul noted that he walked away relatively unscathed before he detailed how the move went wrong. He also admitted that he’s still new to the business so he didn’t know how to improv.
“There was a botched move with a dangerous landing. I walked away this time relatively unscathed. I got some scrapes and bruises, but no major tweaks or pulls. But Ricochet and I were supposed to do what’s called a Spanish fly off the top rope. So one of our legs is on the rope, one of our legs is on the ladder, and we are supposed to hit it at the same time. When hit that rope, it was before me. So he moved it, so I slipped down, all the way to the bottom. Keep in mind, I’m a noob, I don’t really know what I’m doing out there. So when stuff goes wrong, I don’t really know how to improv. So in my head, I’m like, ‘This is fucked. We fucked this up. How is this gonna do this? Is he even gonna do this?’ Our legs are all twisted like this. I’m looking at him like, ‘Oh, this motherfucker is still trying to send this shit.’ I’m not even ready, his feet aren’t even planted off the second rope, just hucks a backup. I’m like, alright. Went crashing through the tables, scraped my shoulder, I hit my head on the thing. I’m fine, no concussions or anything. It’s just a wild sport. I don’t know what I’m doing,” Paul said.
Paul also brought up his backstage brawl with Ricochet, which was shown on the July 3 episode of WWE Raw. He stated that the botched spot blew the match for him, which is why he and Ricochet “got into it” after the bout.
“I’m gonna be honest, he blew the fucking match for me. That’s why we got into it backstage. I got into a little tussle with him. I felt like he was a little unprofessional,” Paul said.
The rivalry between Paul and Ricochet is set to continue as Ricochet challenged Paul to meet him in the ring on the July 10 episode of WWE Raw.
