In a stirring display of sportsmanship, WWE United States Champion Logan Paul has extended his thanks to the Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes following their intense encounter at the WWE King & Queen of the Ring in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Despite playing the antagonist in the ring as 'The Maverick,' Paul openly praised the exhilarating bout with Rhodes, affectionately known as 'The American Nightmare.' Through a heartfelt post on his X (formerly Twitter) account, Paul expressed his enjoyment of the match, stating, "I had so much fun tonight.

Thanks for the dance @CodyRhodes." This interaction highlights the respect between the two athletes, transcending their on-screen roles.

Title Defenses and Bids

The event marked Rhodes' second title defense at a Premium Live Event (PLE) this month, having previously secured his championship against AJ Styles at Backlash: France.

Conversely, this was Paul’s second bid for the world title, following an earlier challenge against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel 2022. The headline event saw both Cody Rhodes and Logan Paul deliver a memorable performance.

In a controversial twist, Paul utilized brass knuckles during the match despite earlier promises to abstain from using them. The drama escalated when Rhodes narrowly avoided a count-out victory, only to halt the referee's count, demonstrating his desire for a conclusive finish.

The climax of the match witnessed a remarkable intervention by guest ring announcer Ibrahim Al Hajjaj, who prevented Paul from employing the brass knuckles a second time. This pivotal distraction allowed Rhodes to execute three consecutive Cross Rhodes moves, ultimately securing his victory by pinfall.

Moving forward, Cody Rhodes is listed to appear at the next event, which is WWE Clash At The Castle: Scotland. This event will take place at Glasgow, Scotland, on June 15th at OVO Hydro Arena. The best of the event is that this has made him increase his validity as a top-notch athlete in the wrestling world, with fans waiting truly in anxiousness for his next defense of the championship.
