Ex-WWE Writer Credits Logan Paul For Being “Pretty Damn Good”

Logan Paul has won plaudits from across the wrestling world for how well he has taken to the sport.

Since joining WWE in 2022, the YouTube star has only had seven bouts, but has been widely praised for those matches, which included a title match against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel.

Most recently, Paul took on Ricochet at SummerSlam in a bout that showcased both men’s high-flying abilities but ended with a classic heel move when the star knocked Ricochet out cold with a set of brass knuckles.

On the latest edition of his Wrestling With Freddie podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. praised Paul’s work despite admitting he didn’t like all of the controversial star’s “life choices.”

“It was a good match man, and I’ve got to give it up to him. I’m not the biggest fan of all his life choices, but they’re his choices and they’re not mine,” he said on “Wrestling With Freddie.” “I’m just a man and it’s not my place to criticize as long as he’s not hurting people … But his work in WWE in the ring has been really, really good and his promo work has been okay. Not good, not bad, just in the middle.”

Prinze Jr. went on to say Paul’s work in WWE has been “pretty damn good”, especially when he’s portraying a heel.

“Irrespective of the way you feel about him, his work in WWE has been better than average, I think is the conservative way to say it, and pretty damn good is the more liberal way to say it, I think if we’re throwing compliments around. I don’t think he’s as good as a heel when he’s trying to be a heel as he is when he’s just trying to be himself and be a babyface and get over. He leaned into it too much, it feels a little bit forced.”

What’s next for Logan Paul?

Soon after SummerSlam, Paul announced that he will be taking a break from wrestling as he returns to the world of boxing. The star will face MMA fighter Dillon Danis on October 14th as part of ‘The PRIME Card.’
