Logan Paul has sent a message to The Miz for turning on him at WrestleMania comparing the moment to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.
WrestleMania 38 was a huge night for Logan Paul as the YouTube star made his WWE in-ring debut, teaming with The Miz to take on Dominik and Rey Mysterio.
During the match, Paul antagonised the crowd at every turn, even mocking the father and son duo by performing some of the signature moves of the late, great, Eddie Guerrero, who had been a close friend of the Mysterio family. Rey and Dominik retaliated by hitting a double 619 followed by two Frog Splashes, however, before they could get the win, The Miz tagged himself in and hit the Skull Crushing Finale on Rey Mysterio for the victory.
However, Logan Paul’s victory celebration was short-lived as his partner turned on him, dropping him with a Skull Crushing Finale out of nowhere before retreating up the ramp and blowing a kiss to his former ally.

Following the show, Logan Paul was interviewed backstage by WWE and spoke about how surreal getting the win was.
“This is surreal, I cannot believe I got to share a ring with The Mysterios and also won the match. You know, this is my first win. I can no longer say I’m the world’s highest-paid loser. That was my thing.”
He quickly turned his attention to The Miz’s betrayal, comparing it to the infamous Oscars moment which saw Will Smith slapping Chris Rock.
“I think it’s equivalent to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. I’m still processing why Miz betrayed me. To be honest with you, if I had to guess, he’s probably jealous. I was doing flips. I went off the top rope. I was doing cool shit. Quite simply, he’s obviously not capable of doing that. He’s older, he’s a little thicker. I’m nimble, I’m young, I’m spry. He just doesn’t have it like me and I think he got jealous and decided to turn on me.”
He finished with a short but simple message for The Miz.
“I mean, it’s bad. F**k you, Miz. F**k you so hard. Yeah, that’s it, f**k you.”
