On his YouTube channel, Jake Paul interviewed his brother and reigning WWE United States Champion Logan Paul, discussing what life has been like since winning the title, and what he’s been up to since beating Rey Mysterio.
Paul defeated Mysterio to win the WWE United States Title at Crown Jewel 2023 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On what he’s been doing with the title belt: “I don’t think you understand. I just took a shower with this belt on. I ran a 5K earlier with this belt on. This belt never leaves my waist. I f*** in this belt. This belt, it means everything to me.”
On what Triple H told him not to do with the title belt: “Cut that out. Cut that out, bro. Just because the WWE, they did say I can’t f*** in the belt. When I won the belt, they said, *Laughs* ‘Whatever you do, don’t you f*** in this belt!’ I swear, Triple H, he came up to me, he said, ‘Logan, congratulations on the belt. One thing we’ve been really cautious about here in the organization is making sure our athletes are not f****ng in their belts. So if you could just refrain from f**king in your belt.’ And I gave him my word. Next thing you know, I’m clapping cheeks in this f***ing 40-pound piece of metal. You gotta cut that out. All of it.”
On Triple H wanting him to use the Imperial system instead of the metric system: “One thing Triple H said to me, after I won, of course, beat Rey Mysterio, for the United States Championship, one thing he said to me. He came up to me, he said, ‘Logan, congratulations. I hope you took the last thing I said to heart and you’re taking it serious.’ I said, ‘Of course.’ Then he said, ‘One other thing. As the United States Champion, you can only use the imperial system. Cut the metric s*** out. No meters. No kilometers. Imperial system only.’ So if you could cut out the part where I said 5K.”
During their WWE United States Title match in Saudi Arabia, Logan Paul caught Rey Mysterio during a scary moonsault spot, and The Maverick spoke about that experience on a recent edition of his “Impaulsive” podcast.
Paul said, “I’m going to come clean because I’ve seen all these positive headlines. ‘Logan saves Rey Mysterio. The Mexican community is going crazy, they’re praising me, saying I’m sort of hero. I’m like, ‘Dang, I’m getting recognized for something cool? I’ll take it.’ Then, I looked at the clip, upon assessing my performance, while I think I did save Rey Mysterio. I think I also almost killed Rey Mysterio. I think I was too far back for the move, and I think he didn’t clear enough ground for the move.”
He continued, “That’s what happened. I was too far back, he didn’t clear enough ground, we both made a mistake. I had to catch him, I had to catch him. I wasn’t going to not catch him. truthfully, while I like the headlines and I like getting gassed up, I was just doing my job. I’ll take the praise. The tough part is when I caught him, I was in like a spider-knee position. I have compromised knees, so maybe they could have snapped.”
