Logan Paul might have started celebrity life as a YouTuber, but he has proved since then that he can turn his hand to just about anything and make a success of it. The latest entry on his resume is that of a WWE Superstar, and The Miz, who has worked with Paul on that plane more than anyone up until this point, has nothing but glowing praise for the internet celeb.
The former WWE Champion was a guest on MackMania this week, just days after he battled and lost against Paul at SummerSlam. Despite suffering what feels like a pretty embarrassing defeat on the surface – it was only Paul's second official match after all – The Miz had nothing but good things to say about Paul (thanks, Dexerto).
“I’m not lying to you, he was the fastest natural talent I have ever seen take to being a professional wrestler,” Miz said. “I’ve been doing this for like 23 years now. [He is] the fastest out of anyone. I’m talking celebrity or WWE superstar.” That's some praise considering what The Miz has achieved during his run in WWE. The A-Lister has main evented WrestleMania, won the WWE Title twice, and is the only two-time Grand Slam Champion in the company's history.
Hall of Famer and new WWE head of creative Triple H has also been impressed with what he has seen from Paul so far. However, during an appearance on Paul's own Impaulsive podcast, The Game admitted when he first heard the YouTuber-turned-boxer-turned-wrestler might be coming in for a match at WrestleMania, he had no idea who he was. Everyone on the show found that rather amusing as Paul exclaimed the 53-year-old WWE EVP isn't his target demographic.
Paul has competed in two matches in WWE so far, signing a deal with the company between the two. There's currently no word on when he will wrestle again, but he did share a video after SummerSlam telling fans he'll be popping up in some unexpected places. Outside of wrestling, Paul has a penchant for Pokemon cards, recently spending $5 million on a single card and breaking a world record in the process.
