• Major Name Told Vince McMahon To Bring Logan Paul To WWE Years Ago
In the main event of the WWE Crown Jewel 2022 premium live event this Saturday night in Saudi Arabia, Logan Paul will face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
While promoting this match on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, Paul Heyman revealed that he originally pitched the idea of bringing Logan Paul to WWE to Vince McMahon a few years ago.
Below is what Heyman said:
“When I was the Executive Director of RAW, I had pitched Logan Paul to Vince McMahon to get involved in a scenario that would ultimately culminate in a SummerSlam or Survivor Series or a Royal Rumble match.
So I had seen the Paul brothers disrupting the Boxing industry from the very beginning when they got involved. I mean, they just came in at such a level and with so much fanfare.
This is a no brainer to The Tribal Chief, and it’s a no brainer to his Special Counsel. This is global publicity. This is a chance to take Logan Paul’s audience and put those eyeballs on WWE, and more importantly, on Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman and The Bloodline.
Of course, the desire is to retain as many eyeballs as possible because we’re trying to seduce them with our brand of entertainment.”
