“After this WrestleMania, when I walked away unscathed — like I’m telling you unscathed, the next day I could have ran a half marathon — I got a lot more confident in my longevity in this sport. There’s a way to do it. There’s a way to perform where you mitigate athletic risk, and I’m gonna find it, and I’m gonna go for the long haul,” Logan Paul said.
“So now I have to actually be really good at this and, and take it serious and get creative in how I can make these lifetime moments that people never forget over and over and over again,” Paul said. ” … So, while it is definitely harder to impress, and the WWE universe is gonna be watching me very carefully and scrutinizing how I perform and how I grow as an athlete, I am excited for the challenge.” [H/T – ESPN]
The 28-year-old star has made a name for himself in different fields of entertainment, including social media, the boxing ring, and the wrestling ring. WWE will likely look to utilize him to his fullest potential to push their product into new territories.
Logan Paul is aiming for a championship in WWE after signing a new contract
Fans have already seen Logan Paul challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at 2022 Crown Jewel. He was unsuccessful at defeating The Tribal Chief but did turn a few heads with his performance.
In an interview with ESPN, Logan stated that he wouldn’t have signed a multi-year extension with the company if he didn’t want to win a championship.
“The idea with this multiyear contract was to get really creative around the story that we’re telling as my professional wrestling career unfolds. Being the hyper-ambitious person that I am, I’m going for a belt. I wouldn’t have signed this contract if I didn’t think that I was capable of getting a WWE belt. I think it’d be the coolest thing ever. I’d love to have it on my résumé.”
