Logan Paul first appeared on WWW television as part of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens’ feud ahead of WrestleMania 37. He did not make much of an impression around that time. He won over critics after his first two matches in WWE, and Jim Cornette also has a high opinion of The Maverick.
Logan Paul officially signed a contract with WWE back in June. He immediately went after The Miz after getting betrayed by him at WrestleMania 38 after their match against The Mysterios.
Logan Paul exacted his revenge on The Miz at WWE SummerSlam, as he went on to defeat The A-Lister in a surprisingly solid match. Logan Paul’s performance certainly won over many people as well.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, Jim Cornette gave huge props to Logan Paul for his performance. In fact, Cornette stated that he believes Paul is a better performer than half the AEW roster.
“Have you noticed that the celebrities and folks from other sports on SummerSlam were more accomplished professional wrestlers than half the roster in AEW?
Logan Paul, he looks better physically than Miz, and I’ve been hard on Miz but I’ll give credit to him here. Because Logan Paul is taking this seriously, he’s obviously working hard and has obviously trained hard and he does moves well, but he’s still green. And Miz is putting up with a lot to put him where he needs to be, to put up with the stiffness – I’m not talking about a stiff potato punch, I’m talking about a stiff… when you want to take an arm it’s like a table leg. You wanna turn a guy, he doesn’t know instinctively or intuitively which way to go or how to flow with it so you’re having to move him around. So herky-jerky body movements. That’s what Miz is putting up with and he shepherded this (match) obviously in the ring.
But Logan Paul, he gets it, and he seems to get selling. He wasn’t just going down and laying there with his face down, he was screaming in pain or he was looking up with facials. Obviously he’s not Jack Briscoe after two matches, but excellent job, and great potential to do more, to get better, if he’s gonna be around for a while with this contract.”
The Maverick also believes he has found his calling in WWE. Paul signed a multi-year contract with WWE, so fans will be seeing a lot more of him in the future. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
