Paul adds that he hopes to keep going back and forth between wrestling and boxing.
The opening match of WWE’s 2023 SummerSlam Premium Live Event saw Logan Paul go one-on-one with Ricochet. The conclusion of the match saw one of Paul’s associates assist him to victory as said individual handed him brass knuckles to use on Ricochet.
Paul then taunted Ricochet’s fiancée, Samantha Irvin, as she announced him as the winner. He looked back on the experience on the newest episode of IMPAULSIVE. Paul said it was fun and a night to remember. He added that the most exciting part of the night was knowing he was getting on a flight to Dallas, Texas to watch his brother Jake Paul fight Nate Diaz.
He spoke highly of Ricochet for making it easy for him to look good. He then touched on Samantha Irvin’s performance and how she played up her role. Paul is making his return to boxing in October and hopes to weave in and out of that and wrestling.
That SummerSlam was fun. I was really tired in there. I was exhausted for some reason and especially trying to focus on the match and perform while I’m tired and also knowing the weight of the night ahead, because that wasn’t even the most exciting part of the night for me, you know? We got a f*cking flight to Dallas to get to. I literally exited the ring, still sweating, huffing and puffing, into the S.U.V., onto the jet to Dallas, made it with time to spare. It was a night to remember dude.
I think we (Paul & Ricochet) got the most viewed social clip as well. Well not ‘we’. I was in it. Samantha Irvin, the ring announcer, who was my opponent’s fiancée, I was kind of taunting her. Beforehand, I was like, ‘You’re gonna be saying Logan Paul’s the winner after I beat your man’ and there’s a video of her announcing me winning the match after. ‘And your winner is Logan Paul’ and she has just a look of torture and sadness, despair on her face but is still delivering the energy of a ring announcer and I think that clip got like 30 million-plus views or so. People really responded to our match and Ricochet is so good. The guy’s so good. He made it easy to look good and it was a fun match, and I’m interested to see how this conversation continues and my WWE career story arch happens with this boxing weaving in, you know? Because I wanna hop back and forth. I don’t know if it’s ever been done.
Paul’s opponent for the 10/14 fight is mixed martial artist Dillon Danis. Logan last fought back in June 2021 when he went the distance with Floyd Mayweather Jr. No winner was announced after the eight-round fight.
