Logan Paul shocked fans after his match with The Miz at SummerSlam, where he made them realize he could actually wrestle. He only gained more popularity as time went on, especially during his feud with Roman Reigns. Paul was viewed as an outsider when he came to WWE, and that’s why Paul Heyman explained how WWE found success with The Maverick and avoided a David Arquette situation.

Logan Paul took Roman Reigns to the absolute limit in their Crown Jewel match. Fans were instantly in love with Paul after his performance there and now they simply can’t get enough of him.

While speaking on WWE’s After The Bell with Corey Graves, Paul Heyman explained how WWE managed to avoid a David Arquette situation with Logan Paul. For those who don’t know, David Arquette became the WCW Champion back in WCW, and this was seen as the nail in the coffin for the company.

“You know, the entire concept would be, who really fits with our product? Who has product knowledge, who can speak eloquently about what we do, and what will they say after their experience here?


It does us no good to bring somebody in, and we spend all this time and money and network television time, and put our promotional machine behind somebody, and then they go and write a book and say, ‘What a sh*t time I had in WWE.’ That doesn’t do us any good.

The idea is to find people that will have some sort of appreciation of the art form that is being displayed here on a nightly basis.

Look at his match with The Miz. He came to play. This wasn’t just a matter of someone saying, ‘Okay, what can I get away with doing?’ This was someone who wanted to put on a show.

This is someone who wanted his match judged against all other matches on the show. And the show was SummerSlam so it was a pretty damn big event.

And he was competitive. Competitive with everyone else on the show, trying to have the best match of the night, trying to entertain the audience more than any other of the featured attractions.

It says a lot. It’s not someone who’s going, ‘Okay, okay just tell me what I need to know and okay, I won’t — I’ll try not to screw it up.’ This was someone who came to compete with everybody else on the roster. That’s really impressive. That’s someone who wants it. That’s someone who takes this seriously.

That’s the one who can go to WWE and say, ‘If I hit that one lucky punch, I become the champion. You got me 365 days a year to promote this thing. Because I’ll be someone that will not be’ – he wouldn’t be a David Arquette with the title. He wouldn’t be. He wouldn’t be a disgrace. He takes it very seriously.”

Logan Paul is currently out of action due to Injury. Logan Paul could also be returning before WrestleMania 39. We will have to wait and see whether Logan Paul will end up with a huge WrestleMania match next month or not.
