Logan Paul has claimed that he might “wear a speedo” at WrestleMania after a fan campaign on social media.
At WrestleMania 38 Logan Paul will step into a WWE ring as a competitor for the first time. The YouTube star will be teaming with The Miz to take on The Mysterios.
Heading into the match, Paul has spoken about wanting to jump from the top rope, and even wrestling on a regular basis should his debut go to plan.
Speaking in a new interview with DAZN, Paul has given a fresh update on his ring-gear. He said that after asking his fans what they would like to see him wear, it looks like he’s going to end up in a speedo. The star added that he’s looking forward to immersing himself in the artform of professional wrestling.
“There’s gonna be 100,000 people watching me wrestle in a speedo. I asked my fans on Instagram. They want me to wear a speedo, so I think I’m gonna try to get that done. I’ve never done it before professionally. I’m with legends in the ring. These guys have been doing it forever; The Miz and The Mysterios. It’s just another one of those things (where) I’m just gonna close my eyes, work as hard as I can, dive in and immerse myself into this art form.”
Paul also admitted that while he’s having fun in the lead up to the show, there are also moments where the nerves kick in and he becomes very aware of the scale of what he’s about to do.
“Sometimes I go in there, and it’s — I never don’t have fun, but sometimes I’m really nervous,” Paul said. “Sometimes I go in there like 100 percent and just (be) like, ‘F— it’, (and be) carefree. But just like anything, it’s a new thing that I’m doing that I’m not accustomed to in front of a ton of people. There’s a learning curve with it. I’m in it, you’re watching it, and we’ll see how it develops.”
Logan Paul has history with The Miz, with the star appearing on Miz TV on Raw back in August. His in-ring debut will be the second-straight year that he will be involved. At WrestleMania 37, the star was ringside as Kevin Owens defeated Sami Zayn. After the match Paul was given a Stunner by Owens.
