Logan Paul wants to win all of the championships, but there’s a slight problem.
On a recent episode of Impaulsive, WWE star Logan Paul spoke to UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya. During their conversation, the internet sensation revealed his secret goal and also why he’s not going to achieve it all.
“Let me tell you something that’s slightly problematic,” Paul said. “I had this idea one day, I said to myself, ‘I don’t think there’s ever been simultaneous WWE, UFC, and boxing champion at the same time.'”
Right away, Adesanya told Paul that he wouldn’t be fighting him despite being in the same weight class. Paul immediately backed down and said he wouldn’t do it.
“Even after today, I’m not gonna do it,” Paul responded. “Even in my head, I’m an optimist, I’m an idealist, I have the visions in the showers too… I said to myself, I could probably do WWE. I could probably cinch a WWE Championship, I’m confident I could do it. Boxing, on one of the lower tier, there’s a hundred different championships nowadays. I ran into a problem with the UFC Championship because you got the belt. I’m not doing it.”
Adesanya noted that some people say things to his face but then turn around and say something differently behind his back. Because of that, he respects Paul’s honesty.
Thus far, Paul has only had one shot at the WWE Universal Championship as he came up short to Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel last November. His last WWE appearance was in April at WrestleMania 39, where he suffered a loss to the new World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
