Speaking on Impaulsive, Logan Paul addressed the sponsorship and backlash.

"Getting that center ring spot is interesting. It's more positive reviews, but I think the die hard wrestling fans are really upset. It's never been done, and Vince [Vince McMahon] was always really protective of the mat and not putting any brands on it, but in this new era, which it is, no matter how you cut it. TKO is a publicly traded company, they have to meet a bottom line. That spot was going to be sold. We saw an opportunity, and potentially an opportunity to make people hate me even more, because I am a heel, that's kind of the angle I took. Fuck y'all, I'm going to stamp everything about this with me so you're reminded of just what my aim is; to takeover," said Paul. "If we don't have this spot forever, who knows, it'll be somebody else. I promise, if you're a die-hard WWE fan, you'll forget about it. It'll start to be standard practice and I don't think it'll be as distracting as y'all think."

Paul said he did find the memes funny of fans photoshopping the PRIME logo on classic WWE moments.
