WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is a fan of both Logan and Jake Paul and thinks their ability to draw money could set them apart from some wrestling stars who compete full-time.
For years now Logan and Jake Paul have been social media sensations and while Jake has parlayed that into a successful exhibition boxing career, Logan Paul has made waves as part of WWE.
Logan Paul has competed in just four matches to date in WWE, making his debut at WrestleMania 38 when he teamed with The Miz to defeat The Mysterios. His most recent outing saw him take part in the men’s Royal Rumble match and he looks to be on a collision course with Seth Rollins for WrestleMania 39.
Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair commented on the possibility of Jake Paul joining his brother in WWE and thinks both Paul brothers are better than some full-time wrestling stars because of their ability to draw money:
“Oh, hell yeah. Yeah, because he’s good. He’s great. Both those kids are better than some of the guys that do it full-time for a living. I’ll stand by that comment all day long. You kidding me? And then, until you told me last week that Shawn [Michaels] was training Logan, which now makes sense. Yeah. I thought the guy has just got incredible natural ability. No, I think they’re big and they draw money. That’s all there is to it, draw money.”
Jake Paul recently lost the first boxing bout of his career in a split decision to Tommy Fury in Saudia Arabia. Paul had previously defeated former UFC stars such as Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva in the boxing ring.
It’s safe to say that not every WWE star might agree with Ric Flair’s assertions as Seth Rollins recently explained why he doesn’t see the long-term value of Logan Paul in the company.
