This week on “The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani,” Logan Paul stopped by to discuss how his WrestleMania match came about, growing up as a WWE fan, and the lengths he is going to train for the match.
Logan Paul on how his WrestleMania 38 match came about:
“I say yes to things that sound fun,” Paul answered.
“They wanted me to compete at WrestleMania.
I like The Miz. I’ve had him on our podcast. We’re both from Ohio.
We’ve always gotten along, so we’re teaming up against The Mysterios, who are a legendary WWE family.”
He continued, “I have one bucket list item I’ve wanted to do my whole life.
This was before I even considered doing WWE or even it being a possibility, and that is to jump off the top rope.
I want to jump off the top rope. I want to sail through the air like a fu**ing eagle and land on someone,” he laughed.
Logan said he grew up as a fan of WWE:
“I’ve been a wrestling fan of WWE my whole life and this is another dream come true,” he said.
“My life is a series of impossible things happening. I don’t know what to do anymore or how to comprehend it.”
On training for the match:
“I’m going to go to Orlando and get proper training there and just learn everything I need to know about taking hits and giving hits, and just fully immerse myself in the sport like I do everything that I end up doing.”
