Logan Paul just had a taste of Roman Reigns, and now he wants a piece of 16-time world champion John Cena.
After his performance against the “Tribal Chief” at World Wrestling Entertainment’s Crown Jewel Premium Live Event in Saudi Arabia for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, Logan Paul has had praise rain down on him. He might have not gotten the victory in the bout, however, his performance earned the respect of many fans and pundits, and even the leader of Cenation himself noticed.
On his Instagram, Cena posted a photo of Paul with no caption, which resulted in Logan Paul commenting with an eyes emoji on his Twitter, with an article underneath reporting that Cena was looking for an opponent for next year’s WrestleMania.

Taking to his “ImPAULsive” podcast, Logan Paul spoke a possible match with John Cena.
“That’s my dream. I’ve proven the model twice now. I’ve proven the model of; headstrong capable internet kid vs. a GOAT, a top-tier industry leader. Floyd (Mayweather). That worked. Generated $65-70 million dollars. Reigns. Crown Jewel became the number one most-viewed international pay-per-view event WWE has ever had. I’ve done it twice. The reason is, when I’m paired with a legend, a top-tier industry leader, the model works.
After Crown Jewel, John Cena posted me on his Instagram and then I saw an article saying he’s looking for an opponent at WrestleMania. I favorited it, responded with the eyes. Truthfully, I think me vs. John Cena would break the internet. I texted Triple H right away, ‘do you want to break the internet again?’ That’s a dream match. WrestleMania, in LA, on my birthday. Triple H, throw me a bone, give me a birthday present, let me take out John Cena. That’d be crazy.
Logan Paul continued:
That’s the model I’m going to pitch to WWE. This week, we’re meeting with them, I’m going to be like, ‘Hey, this works for me. Put me up against the best y’all have. I’m gonna fucking deliver. You know that for a fact. Not only put on an amazing match, but I’m going to put asses in seats and eyeballs on the television.’ Since I’m an outsider, they have to treat my career in the WWE a little differently than they have with the rest of the roster.
The only caveat to this, is I could see how other wrestlers and fans would throw their arms in the air, ‘why is he getting a shot at Cena or Randy Orton?’ The answer is, I’m going to make fucking money.”
