Logan Paul Wants To Open WWE SummerSlam – Here’s Why

Logan Paul and his $5m Pokemon Card

Logan Paul has attempted to pick his spot on the card for WWE SummerSlam.

After starring at WrestleMania 39 in defeat to Seth Rollins, Logan Paul returned to WWE to take part in the men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. During the match, Paul was launched through two tables by Ricochet who delivered a remarkable Spanish Fly from the ropes to the floor.

Naturally, Paul didn’t take this well and a full-blown feud with Ricochet is in full swing. Although the match is yet to be formally announced, it’s believed that the pair will meet one-on-one at SummerSlam in Detroit on August 5th.

That date just so happens to clash with Paul’s brother Jake’s next fight with Nate Diaz. As such, Paul revealed on his Impaulsive podcast that he’s asked to open the show so he can fly to Dallas to be on hand to watch his brother in action.

“After SummerSlam, my brother who is fighting on the same night in Dallas, as soon as my match ends, I’m going to hop on a PJ [private jet], fly to Dallas in my gear, walk in the ring with my brother for his fight against Nate Diaz.

I’m going to try to. I don’t know if I’m going to make it, but I think if I do, it’ll be minutes. Like, I walk into the venue, round one Jake Paul/Nate Diaz starts.

I requested first match. We did the math, it’s barely doable.”

Logan Paul Channeling His Inner Brock Lesnar

Logan Paul isn’t the first person to try and pick their spot on the card, although in 2019, Brock Lesnar did so in much more dramatic style. At WrestleMania 35, Lesnar was set to take on Seth Rollins in the semi-main event.

However, less than impressed at having to be at the incredibly long show all night when not topping the card, Lesnar forced WWE management to change the match order so he went on first, and as a result got to go home early.
