Not too long ago, Paul appeared for WWE in the build-up to and at WrestleMania 37 itself. He appeared as a third party to the feud between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens and decided to support the latter after seeing Zayn’s unstable condition.

However, he ended up getting stunned by Owens in an extremely satisfying moment for the fans. Coming off that, Logan Paul actually wants to work with WWE 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. 

Logan Paul plans on improvising against Floyd Mayweather

WWE’s connection to celebrities in its main events proves that Logan Paul does stand a chance of returning in the future. However, for now, he is focused on his bout with Floyd Mayweather. 

“I fully plan on walking in there and after, like, maybe two rounds, three rounds going ‘oh this guy moves different,’ right? This guy’s really calculated in the sport and then adjust the game plan accordingly,” he said, talking about his preparations.

Undoubtedly, the underdog heading into the fight, Paul argues that he doesn’t need the support of fans. He does, however, believe they would like to see him beat the unbeatable odds. 

“I’d like for them to want me to achieve the impossible. I think it’s cool. I think that’s the thing,” he said.

Even though the fight will have no official judges or winner for that matter, Paul is sure the fans will crown him the champion.

“Victory for me. Even though there’s no official judges, but everyone will know that I won. Everyone expects Floyd to win, but the moment that you remember for the rest of your life is if I beat Floyd Mayweather. And that’s what I think most people are probably rooting for,” he concluded.
