Logan Paul shocked fans with his incredible athleticism during his SummerSlam match against The Miz. The Maverick got a lot of praise for his dedication to professional wrestling.
After a couple of months of waiting, WWE pretty much made it clear they want The Maverick to square off against Roman Reigns for the titles. They confirmed the match during a recent press conference.
So far, Paul has cut a few promos in WWE but they have not been anything to write home about. While speaking to Ryan Satin of FOX, Paul was asked what he’s been doing to prepare for his fight with Roman Reigns. Paul then admitted that he is not comfortable cutting promos.
“I’m doing a lot of sit-ups. I need my six-pack. No one likes a WWE superstar without a six-pack. I’m getting in the ring a lot. WWE was nice enough to actually build a ring in Puerto Rico, where I live, so I can train. At the end of the day, ring generalship and comfortability in the squared circle is the most important. I’m finding, the more I can do my bumps, bounce off the ropes, practice my flips, practice makes perfect and the better I’m getting. I can feel it too, every single day I get in the ring and practice my slams, it’s just a little bit better. The physicality comes easy. Truly, what I need to work on is my mic skills. I’m not comfortable on the mic.
I’ll be on the mic at a show, Madison Square Garden, 18,000 people watching, all heckling me live and talking their smack while I’m trying to deliver a story. It’s very difficult. Doing WWE promos is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do and I have so much respect for the superstars who get in there every Monday and Friday and rattle off this stuff to perfection. I’m just not there yet. The physicality, let’s go.”
Shawn Michaels has also been training Logan Paul ahead of his match against Roman Reigns. We’ll have to see if Paul has any chance against Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5th.
