During his podcast, Logan commented on the matter…
“Look, I’m going to come clean, because I’ve seen all these positive headlines right, ‘Logan saves Rey Mysterio’, the mexican community going crazy, they’re praising me, saying I’m sort of a hero & so I’m like dang I’m being recognized for doing something cool I’ll take it but then I looked at the clip.
Upon assessing my performance, while I did think I saved Rey Mysterio, I think I also almost killed Rey Mysterio, I think I was too far back for the move & I think he didn’t clear enough ground for the move, that’s what happened like… I was too far back & he didn’t clear enough ground we both made a mistake & I had to catch him & I wasn’t gonna not catch him so like truthfully while I like the headlines & I like being gassed up like this, I was just doing my job.” (quote courtesy of @WrestleOps on Twitter/X)
