Logan Paul confirms that WWE tried to set up a bout between he and Nate Diaz.
Last month, it was alleged by Nate Diaz’s camp that WWE had tried to put together a bout between Logan Paul and Diaz. Diaz dismissed the idea of following through on the plans.
Speaking with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Paul was asked whether there was any truth to Diaz’s claim, and Paul confirmed it. Logan also questioned why Diaz would dismiss working with WWE so easily.
“Yeah, they were. You know why I think it didn’t come to fruition. I don’t know. I think Nate wanted to fight Jake. There’s no doubt that any event that I do with the WWE would be massive. They’re one of the biggest sports organizations on the planet. Where’s the hesitation? I don’t understand it. I’m sure he has his reasons,”Logan Paul
Paul is currently scheduled to box Dillon Danis but is expected back in WWE following the boxing match.
