The Faceoff turned out to be surprisingly rather uneventful during the start. However, things changed when Ariel Helwani went over to interview Jake ‘ The Problem Child’ Paul. Jake talks to Helwani while eating a box of Raising Cane’s chicken fingers. “Chicken fingers, Tyron’s a chicken,” Paul told Helwani.

Woodley, ready with his own comeback, brought over DudeWipes to give Paul. DudeWipes are baby wipes for men. Paul smacked it out of his hand and a scuffle broke out on stage when Paul went towards Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley and tried to grab his hat to recreate the infamous ‘gotcha hat’ moment.

After the press conference, Woodley went live on his Instagram and boasted about how Jake couldn’t grab his hat. “Not my Hat! He tried to get mine, Floyd would’ve been happy coz, Whoop, pull. Everything he tried to do got shattered, every shenanigan he tried to play was not even entertained.” 

What is the infamous Jake Paul Gotcha Hat moment? 

Jake Paul injected himself into some serious trouble during his brother Logan’s press conference. Logan Paul and Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather went face to face in a press conference on May 6 earlier this year. The press conference, meant to be just one-liners and insults thrown at each other, quickly escalated after both fighters got off stage.

All thanks to Logan Paul’s younger brother Jake Paul. Jake confronted Floyd Mayweather and his entourage and called Mayweather out to fight him in the ring. After a few heated words, Jake said, “Gotcha hat”, grabbed Mayweather’s hat, and tried to make a break for it.

Floyd and his entourage of bodyguards are not to be messed with, as Jake quickly found out. Within seconds Floyd’s guards grabbed the ‘Problem Child’ and gave him a few problems of their own. Photos after the brawl reveal Jake with a black eye and a torn shirt.
