Logan Paul Named Third Most Influential Wrestling Star
Logan Paul has only had five matches in his short wrestling career but he has already caused quite a stir with his profile and performances.
The social media star made his in-ring debut for WWE at WrestleMania 38 when he teamed with The Miz to defeat Rey and Dominik Mysterio. However, following that bout, The Miz turned on his partner leading to a one-on-one match between the two men at SummerSlam in 2022 which Paul won.
Logan Paul returned to the ring for a third time in his most high-profile match when he challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel. Unsuccessful in that endeavor, Paul sought out another title shot when he entered the men’s 2023 Royal Rumble match but that only led to a feud with Seth Rollins.
Those two men met at WrestleMania 39 with Rollins picking up the victory despite interference from Paul’s energy drink business partner, KSI.
Now research by wrestling-world.com has shown that Logan Paul is the third most influential wrestling figure in the world. It was noted that the research carried out “analyzed social media followings, Wikipedia page views, and Google search volumes from current and former wrestlers to see who the most influential entries are.”
The research puts Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson way out in front as the most influential wrestling figure in the world with John Cena in a distant second and Logan Paul behind him.
Some press releases to the news room stand out more than others… for obvious reasons.
