Fans still remember the special appearance of Logan at WrestleMania 37. For a little context, Sami Zayn went on a tirade against WWE over the lack of opportunities and a longstanding conspiracy against him.

He once tweeted ‘The Maverick‘ for the screening of his Exposé against WWE. Logan found the thought interesting and actually showed up on SmackDown, but this interaction ended up in Kevin Owens attacking Sami Zayn.

Still hopeful, Zayn invited Logan to his match at WrestleMania against KO. Logan showed up this time as well, but his ‘friendship’ with Sami seemed tarnished after Logan celebrated Kevin’s win over Sami. Meanwhile, Logan got a stunner from Kevin in turn.

But proving all the haters wrong, Sami proclaimed he was happy for his ‘friend’ after the latter stood firmly in the history bout. Zayn revealed his influence on Logan, helped the YouTuber survive those eight rounds against ‘The Money‘.

The ‘Great Liberatorwrote, “I’ll say this, @LoganPaul no doubt worked his ass off and proved a lot of people wrong, but if he never meets Sami Zayn, he never realigns his perspective, and no chance he goes 8 rounds with Floyd Mayweather. I’m glad to have played my part in this historic bout.”

His last interaction with the sports entertainment giants was unfinished. Despite his support for Kevin Owens, the latter attacked Logan with the stunner.

Following the WrestleMania appearance, Logan revealed that he will be happy to return in the future. “I mean it’s amazing. I hope to do more with them in the future. Yeah just being in front of the crowd, getting my ass dropped by Kevin Owens….” Paul joked, speaking to Kayla Braxton and Matt Camp on an exclusive feature of WWE’s the Bump.
