Logan Paul Admits He’s Not Comfortable Cutting Promos

Logan Paul is more interested by the physical aspect of professional wrestling.

Since signing on with WWE, Paul has gone 2-0 in the promotion. First, he won a tag team match at WrestleMania before facing The Miz at SummerSlam in singles action. Speaking to Ryan Satin of FOX, Paul was asked what he’s been doing to prepare for his showdown with Reigns. Logan admitted that he isn’t there yet on the microphone.

“I’m doing a lot of sit-ups. I need my six-pack. No one likes a WWE superstar without a six-pack. I’m getting in the ring a lot. WWE was nice enough to actually build a ring in Puerto Rico, where I live, so I can train. At the end of the day, ring generalship and comfortability in the squared circle is the most important. I’m finding, the more I can do my bumps, bounce off the ropes, practice my flips, practice makes perfect and the better I’m getting. I can feel it too, every single day I get in the ring and practice my slams, it’s just a little bit better. The physicality comes easy. Truly, what I need to work on is my mic skills. I’m not comfortable on the mic. I’ll be on the mic at a show, Madison Square Garden, 18,000 people watching, all heckling me live and talking their smack while I’m trying to deliver a story. It’s very difficult. Doing WWE promos is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do and I have so much respect for the superstars who get in there every Monday and Friday and rattle off this stuff to perfection. I’m just not there yet. The physicality, let’s go,”

Logan has gone toe to toe on the microphone with The Miz and Roman Reigns in recent months, being more than able to hold his own. He is set to face Roman Regins at WWE Crown Jewel at the beginning of next month.
