Logan Paul Responds To Ronda Rousey Saying He Gets Special Treatment In WWE

Former WWE star Ronda Rousey recently sparked some buzz when she said she wished she got as much time to rehearse as Logan Paul, and the WWE United States Champion responded.

During a recent appearance on Steve O’s Wild Ride, Ronda Rousey shared her thoughts on Logan Paul’s run in WWE so far. She said that she wished she got as much time to rehearse as he does. (H/t Jeremy Lambert of Fightful for the transcription.)

“He’s great on the mic. He does a great job on the mic,” Ronda Rousey said. “I wish I was allowed the time to rehearse that he gets. It’s not evenly spread. He’s like their next big star. They are rolling out the red carpet. It goes to show that if you give people the time to rehearse and the resources, you can do amazing things. It’s frustrating that everybody doesn’t get that treatment.

“My first match with them was incredible because we had six weeks to rehearse, all the best minds in the business coming and putting in their two cents and it was an instant classic. Then, they never did it again. I was like, ‘Why isn’t this the model?’ They’re doing that with Logan Paul and he’s having these fantastic performances. Look what you guys can do when you actually put organization and effort into things. It blows my mind that this billion-dollar company is succeeding in spite itself in so many ways.”

Logan Paul’s Response To Ronda Rousey

Speaking on BS with Jake Paul, Logan Paul was asked about Ronda Rousey’s comments. The WWE United States Champion stated that he has proven his value.

“I want to approach this from a real mature standpoint because I like Ronda Rousey. What she’s done in MMA is incredible,” Logan Paul said. “We watched her growing up, snapping arms. I have a lot of respect for Ronda Rousey. Every time I’ve met her, it was very amicable. So when she’s saying that, I don’t think it’s a personal attack on me by any means. I don’t feel she’s coming after me. I feel she’s maybe using me as an example to express her dissatisfaction with maybe how she was treated in the WWE. But I can’t speak on that because I don’t know how she was treated. I don’t think she’s a hater. I think she might be unhappy with how her run in the WWE went, but I don’t know anything really about that.

“All I know is how I work and the facilities and time that I’ve been given to make my matches as best as possible. Because I think the WWE recognizes that when I put on a good match, which will happen every single time I perform, the outcome and the reaction of the fans is immense. It fills the audience. I think I’ve proven my value, both in and out the ring, on the mic, wrestling. The impressions that I’m delivering the company are second to none.”

Logan Paul On His Progress

Logan Paul was then asked whether he gets extra time to prepare for his matches. He stated that it was never more than a few days. Paul noted that the amount of time was getting shorter as he continued to progress.

“It’s never more than, at this point, maybe four days,” Logan Paul said. “When I first started, for sure, they were holding my hand, bro. I didn’t go to the PC and do professional wrestling training like a lot of my peers. My only practice and time to learn how to be a professional wrestler was when we were building the match. Now, I’m working with guys who don’t always feel like spending that match time on it, and although it might be helpful for me, I want to be a good colleague.

“But yeah, I wrestled a SmackDown once, where it was my first television match, and I learned it in a week. We took a collective four hours to do it. I can do it, obviously, and I’m going to do it, but my ability to learn matches, put them together, understand them and then execute them is getting better. So the time that I need is getting shorter. I think WWE recognizes that their investment in making sure I do have the time to put the best matches on is paying off.”
