Logan Paul has revealed the WWE legend that he texted Triple H about facing at WrestleMania 39.
Following a fantastic performance in a loss against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, Logan Paul had the entire wrestling world buzzing and earned himself praise from fans and wrestlers alike.
One such wrestler was WWE legend and 16 time world champion John Cena, who posted one of his non-caption photos of Paul on Instagram.
The social media star responded with the eyes emoji on Twitter of an article saying Cena was looking for a WrestleMania 39 opponent.
On the latest edition of the ImPAULsive podcast, Logan Paul revealed that he has already texted Triple H about facing John Cena at next year’s Mania.
“That’s my dream. I’ve proven the model twice now. I’ve proven the model of; headstrong capable internet kid vs. a GOAT, a top-tier industry leader.”
Paul continued on to note his two big time main event matchups against Floyd Mayweather in boxing and against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel.
“Floyd (Mayweather). That worked. Generated $65-70 million dollars. Reigns. Crown Jewel became the number one most-viewed international pay-per-view event WWE has ever had.”
“I’ve done it twice. The reason is, when I’m paired with a legend, a top-tier industry leader, the model works. After Crown Jewel, John Cena posted me on his Instagram and then I saw an article saying he’s looking for an opponent at WrestleMania. I favorited it, responded with the eyes.”
On a potential showdown with John Cena, Paul said:
“Truthfully, I think me vs. John Cena would break the internet.”
“I texted Triple H right away, ‘do you want to break the internet again?’ That’s a dream match. WrestleMania, in LA, on my birthday. Triple H, throw me a bone, give me a birthday present, let me take out John Cena. That’d be crazy.”
Paul noted that this model is proven and always generates money, saying:
“That’s the model I’m going to pitch to WWE. This week, we’re meeting with them, I’m going to be like, ‘Hey, this works for me. Put me up against the best y’all have. I’m gonna fucking deliver. You know that for a fact. Not only put on an amazing match, but I’m going to put asses in seats and eyeballs on the television.'”
The Crown Jewel main eventer concluded by stating that though he’s an outsider, Paul feels that he will still be successful, saying:
“Since I’m an outsider, they have to treat my career in the WWE a little differently than they have with the rest of the roster.”
“The only caveat to this, is I could see how other wrestlers and fans would throw their arms in the air, ‘why is he getting a shot at Cena or Randy Orton?’ The answer is, I’m going to make fucking money.”
As previously reported, Logan Paul suffered a knee injury in the match with Reigns, but he did note that it could have been worse on his podcast.
