WWE Hall Of Famer Explains What It’s like Working With Logan Paul WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels has discussed his experiences of working with YouTuber-turned-wrestler Logan Paul in recent months.

Michaels currently works as Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative, responsible for both creative and development at NXT. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer was recently photographed with Paul, training him ahead of his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match with Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel.

On today’s (October 22) WWE NXT Halloween Havoc media call, Shawn Michaels discussed working with Paul as the latter progresses in his professional wrestling career, admitting that Paul specifically asked to work with him.

He explained:

“Working with him really was fun. He’s a bright kid. I didn’t know him, clearly, I’m whatever. I’m a square. Obviously, I know of him. I saw what he did at Mania and you told tell he was clearly committed. I know the stuff he’s done in the past with the boxing.

“When he jumps into something, he’s going to go all in and he works really hard. I was curious to see how much time and effort he was putting into this. He requested this, I jumped at the opportunity because I was curious. He’s getting it, he really is. He’s a nice kid, clearly he’s bright. He does work really hard.

“He’s got a big platform, so he comes in at a certain spot that none of our young talent is going to come in at. You have to put the cart before the horse with somebody like him. He’s in this match at WrestleMania, so you kind of just maybe train him for what he’s going to do there at that one match.

“That’s one of the things he and I talked about yesterday. ‘While you’re doing this, we have to go back and make sure we teach you some of those foundational and fundamental principles that will better link all of this stuff together.’

With his popularity, they kind of started him five years down the road, but he’s still in the first six months training-wise. That’s one of the things I felt, if we could go back and treat him and teach him some of the fundamentals, it would help him understand at a better level how you link all those other pieces that he’s learning together.

I found him to be a very bright kid, nice guy, he has a great crew around him. They seem to be good boys. It was a lot of fun and getting to be the cool kid in class was cool.”

Alongside Michaels, Paul has been training with Drew Gulak and current WWE producer Shane Helms ahead of his matches in his WWE career.

Paul will face Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5, for a shot at the Tribal Chief’s Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
