American YouTuber Darren Jason Watkins Jr, popular as IShowSpeed, recently attended the WWE WrestleMania 40 to promote Logan Paul and ended up getting an RKO from Randy Ortan, injuring his neck.

He arrived in a Prime suit as he helped his pal beat Orton and Owens to win the triple threat showdown.

The viral video shows IShowSpeed suddenly emerging in front of Orton. Wrapped in Prime Energy drink packaging cover, Speed tried to save Paul from Ortan — who was about to perform a finishing move—and pulled him outside the ring. Irked Orton went to see the man behind the rap and gave an RKO.

Meanwhile, Speed reacted to Orton's attack and wrote. "WWE is real" with a broken heart.

Orton hit Owens with an RKO and seemed on course to win the match but Paul ran in just in time to send him out so he could hit the frog splash to score the pinfall to defend his title.

Speaking after the match, Triple H hailed Paul's showing in the ring at WrestleMania 40.

"I congratulate Logan Paul on another epic outing," he said.

"You get in the ring with Randy Orton and Kevin Owens, and you put on that kind of performance, whether you walk out as champion or you don't what a performance.

"[He's] just a guy that every time he goes out there, he proves why his choice to be here in the WWE and not be doing the other things he was before have sort of cemented him as a WWE superstar. He's so good."

Produced by WWE, WrestleMania XL was the 40th annual WrestleMania and took place from April 6 to 7 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
