Fans say same thing after Logan Paul puts on wrestling masterclass at SummerSlam
LOGAN PAUL once again stole the show in WWE after he defeated The Miz at SummerSlam.
The YouTuber turned boxer initially added wrestling to his ever growing CV with his bow between the ropes in April.
The 27-year-old even managed to claim the victory on his big WrestleMania debut.
He teamed up with The Miz to take on the legendary Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik at WrestleMania and received a hot reception when nearly the entire 70,000-plus crowd jeered the much-maligned star before the bell.
Undeterred, he produced a great performance that included delivering the Three Amigos and a Frog Splash on his opponents.
Paul, with brother Jake Paul watching from the front row, then played a key role as The Miz secured the win for their team.
However, the man who lasted the distance last summer with Floyd Mayweather inside the boxing ring would suffer a painful end to the night.
But while he celebrated with his partner, Miz turned his back on Paul and struck him with a Skull Crushing Finale – which led to him returning to challenge his former friend at SummerSlam on Saturday.
Paul secured his revenge in style at the extravaganza as pulled off a move to remember when he took to the top rope to perform another Frog Splash on his foe through the announce desk.
And his performance captured the hearts of the WWE Universe as they took to Twitter afterwards to praise his display between the ropes.

One tweeted: “Logan Paul has no right to be this good at pro wrestling, but he is!”
Another said: “He’s the best in ring performer since late 90s Shawn Michaels, which is insane, and shows how bad the product has been since then.”
A fellow fan commented: “Logan Paul may be the best in ring, technically sound celebrity that WWE has ever had. He looked incredible in there with the Miz.
That may have been the best celebrity performance of ALL TIME.”
While another said: “Look at what my GOAT, LOGAN PAUL did to this freak. Finished him!”
Paul seemed to be as equally happy with his display, saying afterwards: “I have got to be honest this sport is insane, this is one of the craziest things I have ever done, I can not believe how quickly I have been thrown in at the highest level and expected to perform, but in the end that is what I do.
“I put Miz in his place, I told him exactly what I was going to do and I did it. He underestimated me, respect is respect but I beat my mentor.”
He added: “It is a moment I will remember for the rest of my life.”
