| Last updated
Logan Paul saved Rey Mysterio from what could have been a broken neck during Saturday's WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Paul beat the American to win the United States Championship after using his signature brass knuckles to deliver a knockout punch and take home his first WWE title.
However, the YouTuber-turned-wrestler had to have his wits about him when Mysterio attempted a backwards flip off the ropes.
Paul quickly noticed that his opponent had misjudged the landing and heroically leapt to catch Mysterio mid-air and smoothly turn it into his own move.

Fans have been quick to praise Paul for stepping in and saving what could have been a disaster.
Talking to social media, one fan tweeted: "Wow @LoganPaul legit saved Rey, not going to lie he's born to do WWE I wouldn't even complain if he's their guy after Roman."
While another wrote: "Logan Paul, our unexpected hero, swooped in to rescue Rey from impending doom – it's like he out-entertained the disaster, showing that in the WWE, even chaos has its comedic moments!"
A third added: "So close to Rey having a broken neck. Logan likely forgot and wasn't positioned close enough at the moment to catch a vertical body but good thing he recovered."
"Thats why Logan’s a pro," a fourth chimed in.
