Logan Paul will face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in only his third WWE bout. Paul created his image through social media and has dabbled in boxing, drawing an exhibition match with Floyd Mayweather. However, Triple H recently talked about Paul’s future potential and how much he’s already accomplished.
Triple H recently appeared in an interview with ESPN, where he talked about Paul receiving a championship opportunity so early in his WWE career. He also stated that Paul is actually creating opportunities for others as well.
“If you look at it and you say, ‘Well, Logan Paul gets that opportunity, I don’t get that opportunity,’ you have very small, myopic thinking … When Logan gets this opportunity, eventually he goes away or whatever. He is creating bigger opportunities for others. … It’s the bigger-picture thinking. I understand why people think that way ’cause your concern is your career. But the truth is in the overall picture, this is better for everybody.”
Logan Paul has also talked about receiving so many opportunities on TimboSugarShow with Tim Welch & Sean O’Malley. He said that receiving the chances at such a rapid rate is “ridiculous.”
“If you’re just in and out like a lot of celebrities — they do it once and they get their recognition and then they’re done. But I wanna be more than that ’cause I think I can be, I know I can be. The only thing that’s preventing me from being potentially one of the greatest in this sport is the time and energy that I put into it, which is the one thing I’m good at. So if I do that, I don’t see why I can’t get there. There’s a lot of s— I can do. But something about wrestling is so exciting, right? It’s entertaining. I get to be a showman. I get to be physical. I get to get highlight-reel clips on my social media. Pays well. WWE is very generous.”
Though Paul is only competing in his third match, Paul Heyman claimed that he lobbied to add Paul to WWE during his tenure as WWE Raw Executive Director, which went from June 2019 to June 2020. Keep an eye on Ringside News to get the latest updates.
