Logan Paul recently turned a lot of heads when he signed a long-term deal with WWE. Logan has some experience between the ropes but now will work for the company a lot more frequently. While he will attempt to take care of some unfinished business with The Miz at SummerSlam, there is another very interesting potential opponent for the influencer.
There is one huge name who also has a history with WWE that could get into the fray. Logan Paul’s brother, Jake Paul, has had a very public feud with the Fury family. Tyson Fury recently retired as boxing’s heavyweight champion of the world. His brother Tommy has repeatedly backed out of fights with Jake.
It could be the perfect storm for a pro wrestling feud. In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed the possibility of Logan Paul taking on Tyson Fury in WWE. It appears that Tyson wants to do the match. It won’t come without a huge price tag, however.
“It originally was an idea to try and make McIntyre more mainstream and garner pub for him outside of wrestling. Without McIntyre, the question would be who would he face. It would be a risk since both don’t have much experience, but given that Jake Paul and Tommy Fury (Tyson’s brother) have been linked of late for a fight, Logan Paul would have a storyline to it. It’s a real-life one but not necessarily one that a lot of wrestling fans would know, but they could tell it. There is a size difference and credibility in fighting difference, but pretty much anyone Fury would fight in WWE besides the few guys who are McIntyre’s size would have that.
They could go with Omos but that match could be brutally bad and they seem to not want to beat Omos Even with Paul, who has an aptitude for pro wrestling, it’s two guys with one match each against each other and Fury didn’t show an aptitude in-ring in his debut but does have the talking ability and presence. Jake vs. Tommy was scheduled for 8/6 in Madison Square Garden but a visa issue led to Jake fighting Hasim Rahman Jr.,on that show. Tyson vs. Logan would garner a ton of outside wrestling attention and WWE thrives on that. Within the company the belief was Fury wants to do it, but the price would be high and he question is whether WWE believes the price is worth it.”
WWE loves nothing more than big-name celebrities appearing on their shows. Getting two of them into a match together would be a huge deal in terms of mainstream attention. It won’t be cheap to put it together, but Logan Paul and Tyson Fury could be a huge draw for the company.
