A top WWE star has admitted to taking it personal and not understanding why fans boo’d him.
Making his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38, Logan Paul teamed up with The Miz to defeat Rey and Dominik Mysterio in an impressive showing.
After the bout, Miz turned on Paul and positioned the social media star to be a babyface heading into the two men’s match at SummerSlam 2022. Despite being a face, the fans never really embraced Paul the way that WWE wanted to.
On the latest edition of Impaulsive, Logan Paul discussed how he took it personal when fans would boo him at the beginning of his WWE run. He said:
“I’m obviously a heel, and I like it, but I didn’t at first. When I first got there and people started booing me, I really took it personal. I just didn’t understand. I was pissed.”
“Bruce Prichard came back, ‘that was amazing. They hate you.’ I’m affected by this. Now, I eat it up, and I started to play with the interaction with people in the front row who are booing me.”
“I have to say, the WWE fans have balls. I will get in their face and they’re flipping me off. ‘F**k you.’ I’m right here [face-to-face].”
“I’m sorry, sir, I could end your life where you stand — I obviously won’t because it’s illegal — the fact that they have no regret and no signs of backing down right in front of my face, they have respect for me.”
“They’re a character too. They’re having fun. Now, I’m leaning into it. I’m liking it, and they love to hate me.”
Logan Paul is set for a showdown against Ricochet at SummerSlam following their wild Spanish Fly botch at Money In The Bank 2023.
