Logan Paul is seated atop a ladder underneath the Money in the Bank briefcases in the ring. The crowd loudly boos him. Paul says it’s great to be back in Ohio. Paul says he was walking down the aisle looking at so many kids full of ambition like he was. The best people in the world come from Cleveland. You’ve got LeBron James, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and Logan Paul. When he looks back on his life in Cleveland, he thinks about the moments that made him great. His greatest moment was leaving. When he left Cleveland, he got to pursue his dreams in Hollywood. They all stayed to freeze their asses off in the winter. Paul came back, and it smells like industrial steel. Also, the Browns still suck. Paul is the best that the people have. Their people cannot stop losing. His brother, Jake Paul, lost a boxing match. He lost to Seth “Freakin” Rollins. Hell, the Miz lost tonight.
Today is the day Clevelanders stop losing. Paul is bringing respect back. Paul called the WWE executives because he can and got an invitation. Paul will be competing in the Men’s Money in the Bank contract. Paul will win and cash in on whoever he wants whenever he wants. Then he’s coming back to Cleveland and going crazy.
Ricochet, who is also in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, comes out to the stage. Ricochet says he just wants to congratulate Paul on getting into Money in the Bank. They all understand that Logan Paul has a big social media presence, but Ricochet wants him to understand something. The only reason Paul got added is that Ricochet made Paul go viral at the Royal Rumble. It doesn’t change the fact that Ricochet will leave London as Mr. Money in the Bank.
Shinsuke Nakamura interrupts. Nakamura asks if this is a done deal. Nakamura cannot believe Ricochet doesn’t care because he does. The King of Strong Style is going to be Money in the Bank.
LA Knight comes out to a HUGE ovation. Knight says, “Lemme talk to ya!” Knight sees Ricochet and Nakamura as two guys as useless as basketball cleats. Then he sees a guy that makes videos for 14-year-old girls and pretending to be a megastar. Knight has a map for Paul that has directions for where he can stick it. That briefcase has his name on it.
