Logan Paul would be the best choice to win the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, according to one well-known wrestling observer.

This past Monday on the June 19th edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Logan Paul made his return to the company for the first time since losing to Seth “Freakin” Rollins at WrestleMania 39 over two months ago.

Despite losing that match to Rollins as well as the Crown Jewel 2022 match against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title, the company is rewarding Logan Paul with a spot in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match at the MITB Premium Live Event on July 1st in London, England.

Logan Paul announced that he has been put into the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match with LA Knight, Santos Escobar, Shinsuke Nakamura, Butch, Ricochet and Damian Priest. Those six men all won qualifying matches to get into the Ladder Match while Paul was just handed his spot.

The winner of that match gets a briefcase with a contract in it for a championship match against any champion at any time they want.

During a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained why he believes Logan Paul should win the coveted briefcase.

“I think Logan Paul should win the match. I don’t know that he’ll win, but I think he should. I think it would be a lot of publicity if he won. And the other thing about that is that I think the briefcase gets so annoying when it’s there week after week. But if it’s there every now and then, I think it’s pretty cool. They could have Logan Paul do it and even beat Seth [Rollins] at some point [for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship] and [then] come in and lose it or whatever.”

“I wouldn’t be embarrassed. It’s one thing, [but] it’s not like it’s David Arquette, where it was a total embarrassment putting the [WCW] title on him. This guy’s great. He can talk, he looks good, he can work, he’s great, and he’s a big celebrity. He’s a bigger celebrity than anyone they’ve got in the entire company. So, why not?”

You can watch WWE Money in the Bank on Saturday, July 1 at a special start time of 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT, streaming live exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
