Ex-WWE Star Calls Out Logan Paul, Claims He’d Fall “Flat On His Face” Without Legend’s Help

Logan Paul makes his entrance at WWE Crown Jewel 2022

Logan Paul has certainly impressed since making his debut in WWE, but one former United States Champion believes he’d “fall flat on his face” without consistent help from WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.

Speaking on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, John Morrison was asked what he thought of the YouTube sensation, and called out Paul for exaggerating the severity of the knee injury he suffered in his match against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel back in October.

“Here’s what I think of Logan Paul. Man, remember when he had that match, and he said he completely blew out his knee. All three ligaments, his ACL, PCL, MCL, and then come to find out like, he just kind of had a sore knee. Oh, man, poor guy. “I feel like he’s had three matches, he’s acting like, and a lot of people are acting like he’s God’s gift. And if he wanted to have, I’ve had close to 4000 matches. And I’ve torn both these for real like no MCL partially torn scope, scope, scope, partial ACL.”

Continuing, Morrison questioned whether Paul truly loves professional wrestling and says that he’s only been so impressive because he’s gotten help from WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.

“If he wants to stay in the business and do it for real. Why doesn’t he talk about wrestling then? Because right now I think he’s getting a lot of help from the best minds in the business and pretending like he’s doing more of it than he is. Because without the help of the people surrounding I think Logan Paul falls flat on his face.

“I don’t know if anyone’s had their first three matches rehearsed as much as he’s rehearsed his three matches either, especially like working one on one with Shawn Michaels. Who in the business can say that they worked for a month on one match with Shawn Michaels before they had that match. It’s no wonder it was a great match. He’s working with one of the best minds, best in-ring technicians and performers in the history of the business individually for a month for one match.”

Logan Paul Returned To WWE At The Royal Rumble

After suffering his knee injury at Crown Jewel, Logan Paul was off WWE television until making a sensational return in the men’s Royal Rumble match on January 28th. The YouTube sensation entered at number 29 and had one of the highlights of the night when he and Ricochet collided in the middle of the ring in a double splash after springboarding from ropes opposite one another.

To the surprise of many, Logan Paul eliminated Seth Rollins from the match before eventually being eliminated himself by Cody Rhodes, who went on to win the entire match and secure a title bout with Roman Reigns at the upcoming WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, CA.
