Logan Paul talks intense springboard clothesline at Royal Rumble: ‘I can’t believe this was possible’

Logan Paul made a stunning return to the WWE ring on Saturday when he appeared in the 30-man Royal Rumble match in hopes of getting a shot to headline WrestleMania.

Paul appeared recovered from a knee injury he suffered in a title match against Roman Reigns a few months back, and he showed just how well he would move in the ring when he and fellow wrestler Ricochet pulled off an incredible spot during the match as the both bounced off the top of the rope and collided with each other in the middle of the squared circle.

The YouTube star talked about the spot in the latest episode of “IMPAULSIVE.”

“The move was, we both do what’s called a springboard, which is where you jump and put your foot on the top rope and use it as a trampoline bounce,” he explained. “I can’t believe this was possible. 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, it’s incredible. I don’t think it’s been done before. The wrestling purists will perhaps come down on for me for this one, 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 innovative and create that social media buzz.

“So, midair, trampoline bounce off the top rope, and me and Ricochet clothesline the s— out of each other at a thousand miles an hour. When we landed, because were also falling from, gotta be 7, 8 feet, man, I crawled out of the ring. I had some time there to sit on the edge. I had some Prime, shout-out to that person. I was refueled, I got back in the ring and managed to finish. But wow this sport is hard, and it hurts, and it’s so much fun, and I love it. Yesterday was amazing.”
