Seth Rollins speaks on Logan Paul.
Since coming into WWE in 2021, Logan Paul has drawn a mixed reception from both fans and wrestlers alike. Paul has seemingly gained more and more fanfare as time has went along, as he has been involved in multiple matches that have showcased his in-ring ability.
Paul shocked fans at the 2023 Royal Rumble premium live event, as he entered the Men's Royal Rumble match at the #29 spot, just three months after suffering multiple knee injuries in his match with Roman Reigns at the 2022 Crown Jewel event.
Fans were also shocked when Paul eliminated Seth Rollins from the Royal Rumble match. Up until that point, Rollins had been in the match for 37 minutes.
Rollins recently went live on Instagram and went off on Paul, saying that he while he is very athletic, he's not a real wrestler and he's only in the WWE to further his popularity.
“Alright, look. I was going to avoid this topic but since I’ve seen a few of you guys asking so far about Logan Paul, I don’t know. I don’t know about Logan Paul. All I know is that I don’t really like Logan Paul. I’ll just say it. A lot of us don’t really like Logan Paul. We don’t. I don’t like Logan Paul, I don’t really need him in my locker room, in my space. Great, the guy is ultra talented as far as athletic ability is concerned. He snuck up on me at the Rumble and dumped me, fine. Whatever. I took my eyes off the ball, that one's on me, but don’t go bragging about it like you did something otherworldly. It’s probably the coolest thing Logan’s ever gonna do in his life. I just advise him to stay in his lane. He’s had what, three or four matches? Again, athletic freak, no doubt about it. But, at the end of the day, he’s just not a wrestler. He doesn’t want to be a wrestler. He just wants to be famous, he doesn’t care about the industry. He’s not a wrestler. It’s best for him to just stay in his lane, whatever his lane is, I don’t know, buying counterfeit Pokémon cards. If that’s your lane, stay in that lane. Don’t come knocking on my door cause I’ll knock you out. You don’t have your brother for backup because he’s about to get cooked by this dude coming up in a couple weeks. He’s not gonna be around. At some point, we’re gonna have to come face to face and i just really don’t think he wants none as they say I guess. That’s all I’m gonna say about LP, as they call him. Come in, do your thing, get your little claps and that. Have everybody hold your hand, great. But don’t be bragging about throwing me out of the Rumble. That’s just kinda… calling me a clown, look at this guy. That’s all.”
Rollins is seemingly brushing off Paul for the time being, as he is currently set to compete in the Men's Elimination Chamber match for the United States Championship at the premium live event on February 18. To learn more, click here.
