Logan Paul called the possibility of a WrestleMania match against John Cena a “dream” and revealed his intention to pitch the idea to Triple H and WWE.
During the latest episode of IMPAULSIVE, Logan Paul opened up about his early success in WWE, discussing how his matchups against “top tier” competitors are a pattern he hopes can continue to move forward.
“I’ve proven the model twice now. I’ve proven the model of a stubborn and capable internet kid versus a GOAT… When I’m paired with a top industry leader, the model works.
And while his match against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel received massive praise from industry insiders and the public, Paul seems to have his sights set on an even bigger opportunity and an even bigger opponent.
“So after the Crown Jewel event, John Cena posted me on his Instagram, then I saw a post that said he was looking for an opponent for Wrestlemania and I favorited him and replied with the eyes [emoji] because I mean honestly, I think me versus John Cena would break the internet.
The replay drew massive attention, with many commenting on their desire to see Paul take on Cena.
Paul then went on to say that he against Cena at WrestleMania would be a “dream” and that he has already messaged Triple H about the potential matchup. “It’s a dream game. At Wrestlemania, in LA next year on my birthday. Triple H, throw me a bone, give me a birthday present and let me out John Cena.
Paul then revealed that he had a meeting with WWE later this week and planned to pitch the match to them.
“This week we meet them and I’m just going to say hey, it works for me. Put me against the best you all have, I’m gonna f**king deliver, you know that for a fact. Not only will I do amazing game but i’ll put asses in seats eyeballs glued to tv that’s what i do, that’s what i know and i can promise you i’ll do it every time.
However, Paul acknowledged that – if he were to get a WrestleMania match against one of the biggest in the business – it’s likely some people would be upset.
“Since I’m an underdog, I think they have to treat my WWE career a little differently than they have with the rest of the wrestlers. The only caveat to that is that I could see how other wrestlers and other wrestling fans would throw their arms in the air.
WWE has yet to comment on the possibility of a match between Paul and Cena. However, time will tell if the two end up meeting in the ring at WrestleMania or another big PPV in the future.
