Ric Flair is full of praise for Logan Paul’s performance in WWE.
Logan Paul is no stranger to making waves wherever he goes, and the WWE is no exception. Since making his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38, the YouTube star might get booed, but he’s been impressive with his feats of athleticism.
Speaking to Scott Thompson for Fox News, WWE Hall of Famer made the bold claim that Paul is one of the few true athletes performing in the company. In fact, he believes Paul is better than the majority of the roster. Flair said:
“I can name three [true athletes]. I can’t name 10. I can name three: Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle and my daughter. I have a hard time thinking about who are great athletes. If [Logan Paul] committed himself to it, yeah. He’s better than — I think I said it — probably 70% of the full-time guys.”
“He’s Got Balls” – Ric Flair On Logan Paul
Continuing, Flair praised Paul for his willingness to go all in on professional wrestling, executing dangerous stunts despite having very few matches under his belt.
“A good athlete can do anything and pull off anything. What impressed me about him is he’s got balls. To never do it, to just start jumping off a ladder and s— like that and never done that you’re whole life, it’s a little different.”
Paul recently opened up about coming into wrestling with some training under his belt when he compared his in-ring success to that of fellow celebrity wrestler Bad Bunny.
Logan Paul was last in action when he failed to capture the Money in the Bank briefcase inside the O2 Arena in London. He’s set to face Ricochet at the upcoming SummerSlam PLE in Detroit, MI on August 5th.
