WWE producer ‘Hurricane’ Shane Helms has revealed that he will be travelling to Puerto Rico to help Logan Paul train for Crown Jewel.
At the November 5 premium live event, Paul will challenge for Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. This title bout will be Logan Paul’s third ever wrestling match, following his debut at WrestleMania 38, and his singles match against The Miz at SummerSlam.
Helms notably helped with Logan Paul’s training ahead of WrestleMania. At the time, Helms praised Paul’s natural athleticism.
Sharing his thoughts on the upcoming title match, Helms noted the following on WWE After The Bell:
“If you would have asked me that very same question 10 years ago, 11 years ago, when I first started in the company as a developmental wrestler in FCW, I would have said, ‘This is garbage. I hate it. I can’t stand it. This guy hasn’t paid his dues.
“This guy doesn’t belong.’ I would have given you 75 reasons why it was a bad idea. Now sitting where I sit, having experienced this machine in this capacity for as long as I have and sat ringside for countless hours of matches and moments and memories, now I have a completely different point of view and I love it because of the business aspect of it.
“We talk all the time, even the fans say ‘Oh he’s the best in the business. The business is in a good position right now. It’s looking healthy.’ People forget the business part of the wrestling world.
“Yes, we love great matches. Yes, we love great characters. Logan Paul is a great character. He may not have been a WWE creation or a pro wrestling world creation, but Logan Paul is a character. He is polarizing. He makes you feel some type of way whether you love him or you hate him.
“You’re either gonna tune in because you love Logan Paul and you listen to Impaulsive, and you think he and his brother are the greatest thing since sliced bread, and you’re sure he’s gonna knock off Roman Reigns, or you’re watching so Roman Reigns can smash him for your enjoyment. It makes you feel.
“The worst thing you can have in this business is apathy. What we’ve seen in small glimpses, small doses, of what Logan Paul is physically capable of, the dude’s got all the tools. There’s not a doubt in my mind. I mean, you watch WrestleMania. If you still didn’t believe it, watch SummerSlam. Logan Paul is going to step up. This is going to be big and I actually love it. I can’t believe I’m saying that, but after all these years, I love it.”
Revealing that he’s set to visit Paul at his residence in Puerto Rico, Helms noted:
“I’ll be going to Puerto Rico training with Logan pretty soon and down at the PC as well. He’s going to have to step it up. I think Sami is the best performer going today. There’s still the number one, the top star, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is Roman Reigns. That’s the deep end of the ocean. He’s going into the Mariana Trench with Roman Reigns.”
