Logan Paul Admits He's Not Comfortable On The Mic, Enjoys The Physical Aspect Of Wrestling

Logan Paul has only wrestled two matches in the WWE, but he's made a fast impression on fans and his peers and is now set to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel.

Paul impressed at WrestleMania in a tag team match against The Mysterios (Rey & Dominik Mysterio) and at WWE SummerSlam against his WrestleMania partner The Miz.

Speaking to Ryan Satin of FOX, Paul was asked what he's been doing to prepare for his showdown with Reigns.

"I'm doing a lot of sit-ups. I need my six-pack. No one likes a WWE superstar without a six-pack. I'm getting in the ring a lot. WWE was nice enough to actually build a ring in Puerto Rico, where I live, so I can train. At the end of the day, ring generalship and comfortability in the squared circle is the most important. I'm finding, the more I can do my bumps, bounce off the ropes, practice my flips, practice makes perfect and the better I'm getting. I can feel it too, every single day I get in the ring and practice my slams, it's just a little bit better. The physicality comes easy. Truly, what I need to work on is my mic skills. I'm not comfortable on the mic. I'll be on the mic at a show, Madison Square Garden, 18,000 people watching, all heckling me live and talking their smack while I'm trying to deliver a story. It's very difficult. Doing WWE promos is one of the hardest things I've had to do and I have so much respect for the superstars who get in there every Monday and Friday and rattle off this stuff to perfection. I'm just not there yet. The physicality, let's go," he said.

Paul confirmed he's been working with Drew Gulak and Shane Helms in preparation for the bout.

"He's [Gulak] one of them, it's him and Hurricane Shane Helms. Drew has been the body I've been maneuvering and navigating with. He's incredibly knowledgeable as well. Him and Shane have been coaching me. I don't have this luxury of having a learning curve like a lot of these wrestlers do. I need to get incredible now. I need to get incredible yesterday. I'm taking on the best the WWE has to offer at Crown Jewel. Send everyone you got and every resource you have to make me good now," he said.

On Thursday, WWE posted photos of Paul training with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.

Paul is set to appear on Friday's WWE SmackDown.

Elsewhere during the interview, Paul discussed his "I am the table" line at the WWE Crown jewel press conference. Fans can read his full comments by clicking here.
