Logan Paul returned to a WWE ring in the 2023 Men's Royal Rumble match and was involved in one of the bout's most memorable moments, when he and Ricochet went for simultaneous springboard moves and collided in midair. 

Reflecting on the spot during his Impaulsive podcast, the social media star said:
"The move, we both do a springboard...when this move was pitched to me, I was like, 'is that possible?'. Generally, when I have that reaction, it's a good thing because if it is (possible), it's incredible. I don't think it's been done before. The wrestling purists will perhaps come down on me for this, but I don't think it's been done before, which is what I like to do. 

"I like to chase those moments that are really fresh and create that social media buzz. Mid-air, me and Ricochet clothesline the sh*t out of each other at 1,000 miles an hour and then, when we landed, because we're falling from seven, eight feet, I crawl out of the ring, I have some time there to sit on the edge. Someone gave me PRIME, shoutout to that person. Got back in the ring and managed to finish it".
Though the spot was certainly spectacular, it is not the first time it has been attempted in a WWE ring. CM Punk and Kofi Kingston performed a very similar spot in the WWE Title match opener at Elimination Chamber 2012.
