Logan Paul shocked fans after his match with The Miz at SummerSlam, where he proved his mettle to fans all over the world. His stock only rose after his feud with Roman Reigns. In fact, even Chris Jericho believes Logan Paul is good for business.
Logan Paul took Roman Reigns to the absolute limit in their Crown Jewel match. In fact, there were instances where fans believed Paul actually could beat Reigns. However, that didn’t happen in the end as Paul lost.
The Maverick certainly managed to win over fans and pro wrestlers alike. While speaking with Howie Mandel, Chris Jericho stated that he believes Logan Paul is good for business.
“I think it’s great. I think it’s awesome. Anytime you can get somebody from the outside world coming into wrestling and put a spotlight on it, it’s great. Logan Paul is good for the business because it gets more eyeballs onto the show for people who might not watch wrestling or boxing. It’s smart.
If [other wrestlers] aren’t happy with it, they don’t understand business. The most important thing is selling tickets. That’s the most important thing. I don’t care if it’s Logan Paul, Howie Mandel, or the return of Steve Austin or whatever it may be. It’s stuntcasting. If it works, it’s fine with me. There are always going to be people who are going to be angry that Logan Paul is in wrestling but if it works, you can’t worry about the people who are getting angry because they probably don’t understand. They’re probably younger guys. For me, I understand what it’s like to travel between worlds and the animosity you get from that from some people who will never get it. That’s fine, you just deal with that. You can’t worry about people that don’t like you. All I worry about is people that do like me and making new fans.”
Logan Paul also got a crazy number of searches ahead of WWE Crown Jewel. We’ll have to wait and see when The Maverick will return to WWE television.
