Ex-WWE Star Says Logan Paul Would Fall “Flat On His Face” Without Shawn Michaels
An ex-WWE Superstar thinks Logan Paul would have failed badly had it not been for all the help he received including practicing matches with Shawn Michaels.
Logan Paul has taken the wrestling world by storm despite only competing in three matches so far. He made his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38 when he and The Miz defeated The Mysterios. The Miz turned on Paul after the match leading to a one-on-one bout between the two stars at SummerSlam which Logan Paul won.
Paul’s third match was his biggest as he challenged Roman Reigns – unsuccessfully – for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel. But not everybody is a fan.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast, John Morrison had a lot to say about Logan Paul and thinks he’s acting like he’s doing more work than he really is given the level of support he has been given, including rehearsing one match for weeks with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels:
“Here’s what I think of Logan Paul. Man, remember when he had that match, and he said he completely blew out his knee? All three ligaments, his ACL, PCL, MCL, and then come to find out like, he just kind of had a sore knee. Oh, man, poor guy.”
“I feel like he’s had three matches, he’s acting like, and a lot of people are acting like he’s God’s gift. And if he wanted to have, I’ve had close to 4000 matches. And I’ve torn both these for real like no MCL partially torn scope, scope, scope, partial ACL. If he wants to stay in the business and do it for real. Why doesn’t he talk about wrestling then? Because right now I think he’s getting a lot of help from the best minds in the business and pretending like he’s doing more of it than he is.”
“Because without the help of the people surrounding I think Logan Paul falls flat on his face. I don’t know if anyone’s had their first three matches rehearsed as much as he’s rehearsed his three matches either, especially like working one on one with Shawn Michaels. Who in the business can say that they worked for a month on one match with Shawn Michaels before they had that match? It’s no wonder it was a great match. He’s working with one of the best minds, best in-ring technicians, and performers in the history of the business individually for a month for one match.”
