Logan Paul became one of WWE’s biggest surprises as his athletic ability helped him excel at a level no one thought was possible. His PRIME partnership with WWE has resulted in the PRIME logo being in the center of a WWE ring now. Paul has now reacted to fan outrage following this big move.

During Friday’s WWE SmackDown, Logan Paul made groundbreaking announcement: PRIME has become the first-ever center ring sponsor in WWE history. Starting from WrestleMania 40 onwards, all WWE Premium Live Events will prominently feature the PRIME logo at the center of the ring.

While speaking on Impaulsive, Logan Paul addressed the sponsorship and backlash and acknowledged that fans absolutely detest it. However, he defended the move and stated that it was a business opportunity.

“Getting that center ring spot is interesting. It’s more positive reviews, but I think the die hard wrestling fans are really upset. It’s never been done, and Vince [Vince McMahon] was always really protective of the mat and not putting any brands on it, but in this new era, which it is, no matter how you cut it. TKO is a publicly traded company, they have to meet a bottom line. That spot was going to be sold.”

”We saw an opportunity, and potentially an opportunity to make people hate me even more, because I am a heel, that’s kind of the angle I took. F*** y’all, I’m going to stamp everything about this with me so you’re reminded of just what my aim is; to takeover,” said Paul. “If we don’t have this spot forever, who knows, it’ll be somebody else. I promise, if you’re a die-hard WWE fan, you’ll forget about it. It’ll start to be standard practice and I don’t think it’ll be as distracting as y’all think.”

Logan Paul will likely do battle with Randy Orton at WrestleMania 40, so we will have to wait and see if he will win while he has his PRIME logo at the center of the ring at the Showcase of The Immortals.
