A former WWE writer has stated that they are not a fan of Logan Paul wrestling, pointing to one particular moment at Crown Jewel that they did not like.
Logan Paul has been widely lauded for his performance in his three wrestling matches in WWE to date, including his Crown Jewel main event against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. However, not everyone was a fan.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast, former WWE writer and Hollywood star Freddie Prinze Jr. explained why he did not like what he saw during Paul’s match and why he’s not a fan of celebrities wrestling in general:
“Look, I get why they’re doing it, I wasn’t a big fan of it. I will say this. He did his thing, the dude can wrestle. He’s done I think three matches now, and I finally watched the Crown Jewel match, I was so proud of the fact that I didn’t watch it because I hate Crown Jewel. It’s just the goofiest.”
“So yeah, so it’s a tricky thing. I get why they did it, right? I get why they brought Mr. T to Wrestlemania. But I’m not a fan of it. Like I would rather see wrestlers wrestle. I didn’t like that he videoed himself doing a Frog Splash. How serious are you, this is the old school mentality, how serious are you about winning the WWE Championship if you’re going to hold a phone and video yourself doing a Frog Splash? It should be a singular [focus].”
“Again. It’s an old school mentality, and I’m not saying it’s right. I’m just saying it’s mine. How serious are you about winning, if you don’t have a singular focus on winning? […] This is like, I’m gonna bring everyone into my social media page and get even more followers while I do this.”
