Logan Paul’s rookie year in professional wrestling has been met with applause from many notable figures, including “The Hurricane” Shane Helms, Matt Cardona, and now, the President of UFC, Dana White.

White recently spoke with TMZ Sports about the possibility of integrating some of his athletes into the wrestling world now that UFC has merged with WWE. Although White previously stated his intentions to keep their businesses separate, he expressed openness to the idea of a competitor crossing over if they were “talented enough.”

White cited Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey as prime examples of successful crossover stars who bridged between UFC and WWE.

White also mentioned Logan Paul, who made his wrestling debut at WrestleMania 38, as another athlete who could potentially succeed in the WWE.


“I don’t know jack sht about wrestling, but let’s tell you what I do know. They hit a f**ing home run with that guy, an absolute home run. He is incredibly talented. He’s an amazing athlete. And yes, I was blown away by watching him. So obviously, if you have a scenario where somebody is that good and could go over to the WWE, it’s going to happen.”

Logan Paul’s latest WWE match was at WrestleMania 39, where he faced off against former WWE Champion Seth Rollins. Although he lost the contest, Paul received high praise from Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who echoed sentiments similar to White. “That was f***ing awesome,” Levesque texted Paul.

While Logan Paul’s WWE future remains uncertain, fans and pundits alike are eagerly anticipating what could be next for “The Maverick” in the world of professional wrestling.
