If you are the 5.7 million people who follow Logan Paul on Twitter, then you probably saw he challenged any influencer on social media to beat him in a wrestling match. He offered up $10,000 to anyone who could beat him.
$10,000 to any influencer who can beat me in a wrestling match

Logan and his brother Jake have been looking to get into the fighting game. This appears to be a challenge for some kind of amateur style wrestling match and not necessarily the kind of professional wrestling WWE and AEW does.
However, this didn’t stop current and former WWE superstars and AEW Wrestlers from responding to Paul. Matt Riddle, Mickie James, Dio Madden, Elijah Burke, and Summer Rae all through their names in the hat. From AEW, Big Swole, Joey Janela, and Colt Cabana all responded as well.

Other promotion’s wrestlers jumped into. Ethan Page, Thunder Rosa, WarHorse, and Hammerstone all offered themselves up.
Former ECW wrestler, New Jack had my favorite response of them all.

You can click on the original Tweet to see some of the other responses, but here are a few to save you some time.

Paul has had one boxing match earlier this year. He fought KSI and lost in the 6th round. KSI is a rapper and internet celebrity.
Several of the folks who responded have legitimate pro-fighting backgrounds. Riddle was a MMA star. Burke was a boxer with a 98-1 professional record.
If Paul is looking for bigtime viewership and a spotlight, maybe he could show up on Raw Underground and fight Matt Riddle. This would probably pop Raw’s ratings big time.
Of course, if he’s looking for a win, maybe Janela would be a good choice. We’ve seen how his fights go after his concert battle with Enzo.
