Logan Paul, after listening to this, said, “It will be incredibly exciting. Where it gets difficult is I got famous from being me. I don’t have a character. Do we really know who Hulk Hogan is? You know Hulk Hogan. I can be overly performative in my approach because I am not playing a character.”

He added, “I don’t know how many wrestlers play a character when they hop in that ring or just being themselves. So I’ll be just a f**king a**hole and turn the volume up”

Logan Paul received a loud ovation when he performed moves of the legendary late Eddie Guerrero. He performed Frog Splash and Three Amigos smoothly during his tag team match with The Mysterios at WrestleMania 38.
