JBL has named Jake and Logan Paul the best heels in the world after it was announced that Logan Paul will fight Floyd Mayweather on June 6th.
For the uninitiated, the Paul brothers are extremely successful YouTube and podcast personalities. Their YouTube channels combined have been viewed over twelve billion times.
Recently Jake Paul defeated Ben Askren in his third professional boxing bout, remaining undefeated in the process. The fight reportedly netted an incredible 1.3 million pay-per-view buys and generated $65 million.
His elder brother Logan recently appeared on Night 2 of WrestleMania 37 by the side of Sami Zayn for his match with Kevin Owens. After Owens had put Zayn away, Zayn argued with Paul who appeared to be applauding Owens. After raising Owens arm in victory, Owens then greeted Paul with a Stunner, to the delight of the crowd inside Raymond James Stadium.
JBL is no stranger to a crowd baying for his blood, and on social media, he says it’s that reaction that is making the Paul brothers plenty of money.
The WWE Hall Of Famer posted:
“Who says you can’t get heat these days? Best heels in the world-the Paul brothers, and they both are getting paid. Heat sells-it ALWAYS has.”
The fight with Mayweather is scheduled for June 6th to take place inside the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. Mayweather is widely considered the greatest boxer ever with a record of fifty wins and zero losses. The latest of those wins came in August 2017. Mayweather stopped former dual UFC Champion Connor McGregor in the tenth round. Reports suggest that Mayweather’s purse for that fight was around $280 million.
Mayweather is no stranger to the wrestling world either. The Olympic bronze medallist competed at WrestleMania 24 in 2008 against The Big Show. Mayweather defeated Show after using brass knucks to KO his giant opponent.
JBL recently discussed on a YouTube Q and A his thoughts on possibly running for elected office now his wrestling days are behind him.
