Logan Paul showed up on WWE's Monday Night Raw this week wearing Rey Mysterio's mask that The Miz stole from the famous luchador last week. Miz dared Paul to wear it today, they introduced the YouTuber as "Lucha Logan," the greatest luchador of perpetuity. Paul and Miz will collaborate to face Rey and Dominik Mysterio at WrestleMania 38 this coming weekend as one of three star matches booked for the show.
WWE published a video on Sunday of Paul training at the WWE Performance Center to prepare for his match. Both Miz and Shane "Hurricane" Helms applauded the boxer for how quickly he picked up the fundamentals of professional wrestling.
" Training Logan Paul has been among the simplest celebrity trainings I've ever done," Helms stated. "He's a natural athlete, natural charm, natural character. It's simply a matter of feeding him a bit of information, he's processes it and dude, it's been super simple.".
" I'm not going to lie, Miz is a great partner. Even just behind the scenes, training me and helping me through whatever. This is type of taboo, but it's his sport. He's the Superstar and I'm the new person and you never understand if he's going to wish to take the spotlight or keep the spotlight. But he's extremely give-and-take," Paul stated in the video.
Paul likewise bragged in a recent TMZ Sports interview that he didn't require the exact same amount of training Bad Bunny needed for his WrestleMania 37 match last year. The Grammy-winning rap artist managed to take the show in his tag match against The Miz and John Morrison.
" It's intriguing because Bad Bunny carried out at WrestleMania last year and he was unbelievable, right? Everyone is comparing me to Bad Bunny, like, 'He was training for this long' or whatever. All due respect to Bad Bunny, I don't think I need to be in there as long to select it up. It simply comes extremely naturally to me and I want to raise the bar. He set the bar really high and so it's a good little push for me,".
