In recent months, Logan Paul has very quickly stunned the wrestling community with just how fast he has been able to acclimate to the wrestling business during his time in WWE.
In just two matches, the YouTube star has surpassed the expectations that came with his lack of experience, and has been touted by many as a “natural” in the ring.
In a recent interview with MackMania, Logan Paul’s former tag team partner-turned-rival, The Miz, praised Logan’s in-ring ability.
“I’m not lying to you, he was the fastest natural talent I have ever seen take to being a professional wrestler, being a WWE superstar. I’m talking, I’ve been doing this for like 23 years now. [He is] the fastest out of anyone. I’m talking celebrity or WWE superstar. I don’t pick things up very fast at all. If you remember me right in the beginning, I was terrible, like horrible. I still look at matches and go, ‘You’re terrible, you’re horrible.’ But you work at it, and I like to think that where my talent lacks, my hard work picks up. So, I’ll outwork everybody to where I’ll beat your talent because you know what? You’re not working hard enough. That’s where I stand, but Logan is one of those people who picks something up right off the bat. I would show him something and literally he would get it right away. It was like, ‘How did you just do that? That usually takes practice and time.’ He just picked it up quickly. So, yeah, he is definitely one of the best natural talents I’ve ever seen.”The Miz
This past weekend, Logan Paul defeated The Miz at WWE SummerSlam in Nashville.
Although he’s only had two matches so far in his career, the 27-year-old social media star recently signed a multi-year contract with the WWE, so it should be safe to say that we haven’t seen the last of Logan Paul in the squared circle.
