In a high-voltage main event, Roman Reigns defeated Logan Paul at Crown Jewel 2022 to retain his undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The match ended when Reigns knocked out his opponent with a Superman Punch and then a Spear.
Logan’s performance is being widely praised by the WWE Universe. His athleticism was top-notch and the underdog was able to give Reigns some big bumps in his title defense. The Romans emerged victorious for the ninth time in a row as a distraction from The Bloodline.
After the showdown, Logan Paul revealed on Twitter that he had torn his ACL and meniscus during his fight with The Tribal Chief. The injury occurred in the middle of a 25-minute-long match – an incredible feat considering that he flew some high.
It usually takes six to eight months for a torn ACL to heal. Meanwhile, the time it takes for a torn meniscus to heal ranges from six weeks to three months, depending on the severity. The case of Seth Rollins can be taken as an example. The multi-time champion suffered a similar injury during a match against Kane at a live event in Dublin, Ireland, on 4 November 2015.
The injury required surgery and it was estimated that Rollins would be out of action for about six to nine months. He recovered quickly and returned to Extreme Rules in May of the following year.
Logan Paul is expected to make a full recovery by the start of SummerSlam 2023. He has played three high-profile matches in his WWE career, all of them played in premium live events. The YouTuber has a way with the crowd and the company would like to use that for its mega-event.
