Logan Paul defeated Rey Mysterio to capture the United States Championship at the 2023 Crown Jewel pay-per-view event, and he says he’s taking it very seriously.
Speaking on a recent edition of his “ImPAULsive” podcast, the social media influencer commented on why wrestling is much harder than boxing, his plans to defend the United States title, and more. He said,
“Wrestling is much harder [than boxing] because it’s a 360-degree art. There are so many things involved in this sport that make it extremely difficult, so people ask me like, ‘What’s so special about the belt? What does it mean?’ To me, it’s a symbol of accomplishment and trust in the craft and the human. WWE doesn’t just give this belt to someone. It is them entrusting you with their publicly traded company worth four billion [dollars] at the moment. It’s a big deal that they stamp you and are willing to say, ‘You’re significant enough and have done enough disruption in our company for us to put one of our titles on you.’”
He continued, “There’s not that many of them, and there’s a bunch of people on the roster. So winning this, for me, was such an achievement because in that moment when my hand was raised and they handed me this shiny heavy belt, the United States Champion[ship], I just saw my whole life in front of my eyes, all my ups, all my downs.”
WWE has announced two matches for Friday’s episode of WWE NXT Level Up.
Riley Osborne will take on Tavion Heights while Dani Palmer will battle Tatum Paxley on the show, which airs Friday night on Peacock.
