Logan Paul had a great showing at WrestleMania 38 and Jim Cornette believes he is better than half of the AEW roster.
Paul teamed up with The Miz to take on the Mysterios (Rey and Dominick Mysterio) at the Show of Shows. The internet sensation made his professional wrestling in-ring debut and put on an impressive display. In the end, The Miz picked up the win by planting the Master of 619 with a Skull Crushing Finale.
Speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, the former WWE manager stated that with just one match, Logan Paul proved himself to be better than half of the AEW roster.
“Very shortly after the match started, I said, this guy has got the aptitude for this. He did a nice power slam. He did a blockbuster. I mean he’s doing the moves, but also he’s not rushing. He’s got the facial expressions. And if you notice a lot of the celebrities actually try to sell s**t in a more realistic fashion than some of the wrestlers. You know, but again I’ve tried, I watched them and this is the first time I’ve really watched a Miz match in a long time. I still don’t see anything and I don’t understand it, don’t get it. But Logan Paul, he right now, he could be in the top half of the AEW roster.” (14:30 – 15:25)
