Dillon Danis wants to continue his rivalry with Logan Paul by making an appearance in AEW.
Dillon Danis will face Logan Paul at The Prime Card on October 14. The match will mark Paul's return to boxing for the first time since 2021. In recent years, Paul has been a part-time star in WWE, and he re-signed with the company earlier in 2023.
Speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Danis claimed that Helwani took Grayson Waller to take down his picture with him. He then asked Helwani if he knew anyone from AEW and stated that he wanted to make an appearance "against MJF" there.
"Do you know anybody from AEW? Well, I want to do the rival because he [Logan Paul] is in WWE. I want to make an appearance against MJF. We’ve been trying to work on it. It might happen, but I don’t know. But now with the time, we’ve been trying to work on it. Me and him, imagine? That would be great," Danis said.
Danis then noted that he doesn't know Tony Khan or anyone in AEW, so making an appearance happen has not been easy. When Helwani asked him why he wanted to go against WWE, he stated that he did not. He made it clear that he loves the Attitude Era.
"I don’t know Tony Khan. I don’t know anybody there. I would love to do that. It’s perfect because it’s AEW, WWE. I don’t want to against [WWE]. I love wrestling. I love the Attitude Era," Danis said.
Helwani asked Danis why he doesn't want to go to WWE. He stated that Paul is in the "Karen" era, and he likes the old-school guys. Danis claimed that Rey Mysterio and other veterans loved him when he was backstage. He also claimed that they told him that Paul gets swirlies in the back.
"Fucking Logan’s part of the Karen era. I like the old-school guys. Like Rey Mysterio and those guys, they loved me. They were all back there like, ‘Fucking Logan, no one likes him, we give him swirlies in the back.’ Triple H even said that to me," Danis said.
It's important to note that Helwani had a "Dillon Lie" counter up on the screen, and it went off multiple times throughout the interview. The counter went off when Danis made his claim about the swirlies.
Danis is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion, and has fought in Bellator MMA.
