Battered and bruised Logan Paul put through a table at WWE Royal Rumble after crowd left angry with the finish of his match against Kevin Owens

  • Logan Paul continues his reign as United States champion after winning by DQ
  • The 48,000-strong crowd was not happy there was not a definitive winner
  • Kevin Owens did not take it easy on Paul, his body told a story by the end! 

 WWE fans don’t like non-finishes on pay-per-view and it wasn’t any different in St. Petersburg, Florida for the Royal Rumble when Logan Paul managed to retain his United States title.

The YouTube megastar kept his title thanks to Kevin Owens being disqualified for using brass knuckles.

Of course, Paul was the one who brought them into the match in the first place, but Owens managed to wrestle them off of him and use them himself.

The 48,044-strong crowd voice their displeasure at the end result, but Owens made sure to give them something to cheer about as he set about dismantling the champion.

The part-time boxer already had blood streaming down his face, seemingly from his neck.

 The Canadian dragged Paul outside and powerbombed him through the announce table to placate a frustrated crowd.

 During the match itself, Paul had a lot of the action and made sure to take advantage of the challenger’s lingering injuries, despite having very visible welts of his own on his chest.

After an early onslaught, Paul recovered to slam Owens’ injured hand against the ring post and take control of the contest.

 A failed 619 gave KO and opening, but Paul managed to stop him in his tracks by getting his knees up and denying a senton and Paul managed to repeat that defence when KO attempted the same move from the top rope minutes later.

The result means Paul is still on course to head to WrestleMania with a title around his waist, virtually guaranteeing him a featured contest.
