Seth Rollins is not a fan of Logan Paul while claiming that the YouTube star is not a wrestler among other things in a lengthy statement on Instagram.
During the Men’s Royal Rumble match last Saturday, Seth “Freakin” Rollins entered the match at #15 while lasting an impressive 37:18 in the match with two eliminations. Rollins made it near the end of the match until he was eliminated by Logan Paul, who entered the match at #29. Rollins was the fourth last man in the match, Paul was third last while GUNTHER was the runner-up to the winner, Cody Rhodes.
As a former Royal Rumble winner in 2019, Seth Rollins knows what it’s like to win one of the toughest matches in all of WWE. As for Logan Paul, it was his first Royal Rumble match and only his fourth WWE match.
When Rollins was asked about Paul eliminating him in the Rumble match on the January 30th edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Rollins just walked away instead of talking about it.
During a live chat with fans on his Instagram account, Seth Rollins finally spoke about Logan Paul in a not-so-flattering way.
“Alright, look. I was going to avoid this topic but since I’ve seen a few of you guys asking so far about Logan Paul, I don’t know. I don’t know about Logan Paul. All I know is that I don’t really like Logan Paul. I’ll just say it. A lot of us don’t really like Logan Paul. We don’t. I don’t like Logan Paul, I don’t really need him in my locker room, in my space. Great, the guy is ultra talented as far as athletic ability is concerned.”
“He snuck up on me at the Rumble and dumped me, fine. Whatever. I took my eyes off the ball, that one’s on me, but don’t go bragging about it like you did something otherworldly. It’s probably the coolest thing Logan’s ever gonna do in his life. I just advise him to stay in his lane. He’s had what, three or four matches? Again, athletic freak, no doubt about it. But, at the end of the day, he’s just not a wrestler.”
While continuing to make his point, Seth Rollins claimed that Paul is only in WWE to try to be more famous.
“He doesn’t want to be a wrestler. He just wants to be famous, he doesn’t care about the industry. He’s not a wrestler. It’s best for him to just stay in his lane, whatever his lane is, I don’t know, buying counterfeit Pokémon cards. If that’s your lane, stay in that lane. Don’t come knocking on my door cause I’ll knock you out. You don’t have your brother for backup because he’s about to get cooked by this dude coming up in a couple weeks. He’s not gonna be around.”
“At some point, we’re gonna have to come face to face and I just really don’t think he wants none as they say I guess. That’s all I’m gonna say about LP, as they call him. Come in, do your thing, get your little claps and that. Have everybody hold your hand, great. But don’t be bragging about throwing me out of the Rumble. That’s just kinda… calling me a clown, look at this guy. That’s all.”
As we have pointed out already on TJRWrestling, Rollins facing Paul in a match at WrestleMania 39 is very likely. That’s why Paul eliminated Rollins from the Royal Rumble and why Rollins furthered the story with these comments about not liking Paul.
