He wants to be present for his brother Jake’s fight. 

The newest episode of Logan Paul’s IMPAULSIVE podcast was released and it featured a conversation that he and his co-host had with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. 

As they were discussing SummerSlam on August 5th in Detroit, Michigan, Paul stated that he requested to be the show opener. He wants to get on a private jet immediately after his match and walk his brother Jake to the ring to fight Nate Diaz in Dallas, Texas

After SummerSlam, my brother who is fighting on the same night in Dallas, as soon as my match ends, I’m gonna hop on a P.J., fly to Dallas in my gear, walk in the ring with my brother for his fight against Nate Diaz. I’m gonna try to. I don’t know if I’m gonna make it but I think if I do, it’ll be minutes. Like I walk into the venue, round one, Jake Paul-Nate Diaz starts. It’s on August 5th. It is barely possible. I requested first match (at SummerSlam)… It takes two-and-a-half hours (to get from Detroit to Dallas). One hour time difference, Jake will go on at 11. We did the math. It’s barely doable.

Coming out of Money in the Bank, Paul and Ricochet have been at odds. Logan is appearing on the 7/24 Raw for a face-to-face with Ricochet.
