Although he outright refused to answer Cathy Kelley on RAW when asked about Logan Paul on Monday, Seth Rollins finally shared his thoughts about the social media personality turned WWE superstar who eliminated him from the 2023 Royal Rumble on an IG Live session on Thursday. Needless to say, while Rollins admits that Paul has surprised him with his athletic ability, he’s still very dubious about Paul’s authenticity and true dedication to the pro wrestling industry.
“Alright, look. I was going to avoid this topic but since I’ve seen a few of you guys asking so far about Logan Paul, I don’t know,” Rollins said on the IG Live interview. “I don’t know about Logan Paul. All I know is that I don’t really like Logan Paul. I’ll just say it. A lot of us don’t really like Logan Paul. We don’t. I don’t like Logan Paul, I don’t really need him in my locker room, in my space. Great, the guy is ultra talented as far as athletic ability is concerned. He snuck up on me at the Rumble and dumped me, fine. Whatever. I took my eyes off the ball, that one’s on me, but don’t go bragging about it like you did something otherworldly. It’s probably the coolest thing Logan’s ever gonna do in his life. I just advise him to stay in his lane.”
Rollins added to the “stay in his lane” comment, citing Paul’s inexperience in the ring and his purchase of a $3.5 million fake Pokemon card case as reasons why Paul’s hubris and boastful comments with regards to eliminating Rollins from the Royal Rumble are unfounded.
“He’s had what, three or four matches? Again, athletic freak, no doubt about it. But, at the end of the day, he’s just not a wrestler. He doesn’t want to be a wrestler. He just wants to be famous, he doesn’t care about the industry. He’s not a wrestler. It’s best for him to just stay in his lane, whatever his lane is, I don’t know, buying counterfeit Pokémon cards. If that’s your lane, stay in that lane. Don’t come knocking on my door cause I’ll knock you out. You don’t have your brother for backup because he’s about to get cooked by this dude coming up in a couple weeks. He’s not gonna be around. At some point, we’re gonna have to come face to face and I just really don’t think he wants none as they say I guess. That’s all I’m gonna say about LP, as they call him. Come in, do your thing, get your little claps and that. Have everybody hold your hand, great. But don’t be bragging about throwing me out of the Rumble. That’s just kinda… calling me a clown, look at this guy. That’s all.”
