A legendary WWE superstar had some very nice things to say about Logan Paul in a recent interview.
During his first two full years of having matches in WWE in 2022 and 2023, the current WWE United States Champion Logan Paul has only wrestled in eight matches total. Five of those matches were singles matches. While Paul failed to beat main eventers like Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins, he picked up big wins over The Miz and Rey Mysterio.
That match with Rey Mysterio was at WWE Crown Jewel on November 4th when Logan Paul left as the United States Champion. It wasn’t clean, but for a heel like Paul, it was fitting to get the win controversially thanks to some brass knuckles.
When he’s not wrestling, Logan Paul is doing other things like promoting his Prime energy drink and hosting his podcast. The 16-time former WWE World Champion and future Hall of Famer John Cena was on the podcast recently with Paul.
While on Paul’s IMPAULSIVE podcast, Cena admitted that maybe in the past he would have been skeptical of an outsider like Paul in WWE, but the times have changed. Cena went on to praise Paul for his performances in WWE.
“Me, ten years ago would have been very skeptical, but the business has changed, and because the business has changed and we have better distribution and we’re in more places, the perception of what we can offer has changed. Now, people come to us seeing opportunity and not just what can I take from this place.”
“Right away, with what you were willing to sacrifice in terms of your health and well-being with the moves that you do, I can tell that you give a s**t. That means a lot. You’re not here to just do the thing once. You went from special guest to full-time superstar in five minutes. That’s very refreshing. I think it speaks volumes to you understanding what the WWE can offer and how the WWE has changed.”
