Logan Paul became one of WWE’s biggest surprises as his athletic ability immediately made him worth talking about in the company. His matches against Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and others further raised his stock to a level that he is well respected by fans and peers alike. Now it appears some believe WWE is making him feel less special with his upcoming match with Ricochet.
Logan Paul returned at WWE Money in the Bank, where he competed in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. After failing to win the match, he began feuding with Ricochet on Monday Night RAW.
The two have been trading barbs on the microphone these past few weeks and are set to collide at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event. While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Cornette questioned why Vince McMahon did not stop Logan Paul’s match with Ricochet, adding that he believes WWE is making him feel less special with his upcoming match with Ricochet.
“I guess if he wants to do it, they want to make him happy. But I can’t believe Vince didn’t put his foot down and say ‘No we’re not. For the same reason, we’re not gonna book Brock Lesnar against Flop Dolla.’ We’re not gonna book a main event celebrity attraction that Saudi Arabia pays money for and that does ratings, against a mid-card guy because it takes some of the special away from Logan Paul.
I’m sure Logan Paul asked for it because why would you take a guy that’s that big a celebrity around the world, he’s wrestled Seth Rollins, he wrestled Roman Reigns in the big marquee matches. Why would you book a guy that level, that’s been presented as that level of a star against Ricochet? That’s not even an insult to the guy as far as his talent in the ring or whatever. That’s an honest assessment of the way he’s presented in the pecking order of their television.”
We will have to wait and see whether Logan Paul will be able to defeat Ricochet in their upcoming match at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event. After all, fans are invested in their feud.
