Logan Paul made his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38 teaming with The Miz to defeat Rey & Dominik Mysterio. He would return to the ring at SummerSlam to defeat The Miz.
Paul, who rose to fame through digital media and YouTube videos, has been praised by fans, critics, and peers for his in-ring performances and credited for picking things up quickly.
Despite how quickly he's seemingly picked things up, Paul admits that things are hard and there is plenty of work to be done.
"I'm having trouble with it. It is hard," Paul said on his Impaulsive podcast with guest Roman Reigns. "I feel I'm trying to learn those things. I'm watching guys like you [Roman Reigns], I'm watching Brock (Lesnar), a lot of John Cena, Stone Cold, doing my research and trying to get as versed as I can in this industry, but it is hard. I don't have the luxury of time on my side. I'm here. I watched a video of John Cena watching an old match of his and it's really interesting now, in hindsight, that he has the knowledge that he has, to critique his performance. It was his first performance ever. He was just watching the crowd, he was barely watching the moves, the physicality. It's all about the crowd. I just came to the realization, I think WWE is harder than boxing. It's a mental torment to consider the crowd, the moves, everything all at once. It's absurd."
Paul has shared the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr, going to a draw in an exhibition bout.
Paul is set to be part of Friday's WWE SmackDown after an invite from Triple H.
