Paul Heyman Tried To Bring Logan Paul To WWE When He Was Executive Director Of Raw

Paul Heyman wanted Logan Paul in WWE long before he was Roman Reigns’ special counsel

Whilst the idea of Logan Paul taking on Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship may sound absurd, we can assure you it is actually happening, with Paul set to face the ‘Tribal Chief’ at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5.

However, Reigns’ special counsel Paul Heyman has revealed that he has long had his eye on Paul, revealing on After The Bell that he wanted to bring the controversial YouTube star to WWE when he was the Executive Director of Raw:

"When I was executive director of Raw, I had pitched Logan Paul to the then-chairman Vince McMahon to get involved in a scenario that would ultimately culminate in a SummerSlam or Survivor Series or Royal Rumble match. I had seen the Paul brothers disrupting the boxing industry from the very beginning when they got involved, they just came in at such a level and with so much fan fair. This is a no-brainer to the Tribal Chief and a no-brainer to the Special Counsel. This is global publicity, a chance to take Logan Paul's audience and put those eyeballs on WWE, and more importantly on Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, and the Bloodline. The desire is, to retain as many eyeballs as possible because we're trying to seduce them on our brand of entertainment,” said Heyman.
