Logan Paul has helped set new standards for celebrity wrestlers in WWE, and he’s already got his eye on getting back in the spotlight.
The YouTube star hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 39, putting an end to their rivalry that had spanned the first part of 2023.
Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Paul revealed what he’s been doing while he’s been away, commenting that he’s excited to get back. The star explained that he’s been watching WWE as a fan, something that has given him a new perspective.
“I am so hungry to get back in there dude. I am so hungry to get back in there and I just got cable. I just got cable down here in Puerto Rico so I’ve been watching Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and the big events. Night of Champions just happened. As a fan, and for the first time, I’m watching the consumer angle. I didn’t always do that.
As a YouTuber, I got to go and be a YouTuber because I knew what people are looking for, what they wanted and what made a good video and kept the audience retained. Now, as a WWE fan, I can see how the performance translates from what it feels like from my perspective to on TV and I think this angle and these last three months I’ve had off in this sport will lead to an amazing next couple of years in the WWE… I’ll really excited to get back.”
