After his fairly recent entry into professional wrestling, Logan Paul has emerged as a big name in WWE. Considering the nature of this sport, one must face brutal attacks in the ring, regardless of winning championship titles. During the Elimination Chamber on February 24 at Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia, Paul faced some major blows inside the pod. Though the brass knuckles were permitted this time around, it proved to be of little help for the YouTuber-turned-boxer.
