WWE Superstar Seth Rollins slammed Logan Paul during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, perhaps laying the groundwork for a confrontation between the two at WrestleMania 39.
After what occurred at the Royal Rumble, Seth Rollins recently went on the Pat McAfee Show and took a dig at a current WWE Superstar. Rollins performed admirably in the Men’s Royal Rumble contest. He started at #15 and lasted almost 30 minutes until being eliminated by Logan Paul. The 27-year-old WWE Superstar then had another amazing encounter with Ricochet. The Visionary discussed why he dislikes Logan Paul on the Pat McAfee Show.
“He’s [Logan Paul] in it for himself. He’s in it for his own gain. So, I don’t want you in my business if you’re going to leech off it and you’re going to take from it. Great if you’re going to help out and you’re going to make everything as good as you can, but if you’re going to come and do it for you…look I can only judge what he’s done in the past. His own history, that’s foretelling for the future, and that’s why I don’t like the guy. That’s why I don’t dig the guy and he’s going to go rub it in on social media. He’s going to talk his talk, but he don’t want to say nothing to my face,” said Seth Rollins. [H/T: Wrestling News]

Seth Rollins and Logan Paul appear to be on a collision course for WrestleMania 39 after ending Rollins’ fantasy of main-eventing the Los Angeles show during the Men’s Royal Rumble match, eliminating him and finishing in the fight’s last three. Since then, Rollins has made a point of mentioning Paul whenever possible, with the American media personality continuing the conversation on his podcast amid rumors that the bout is set for SoFi Stadium.
As a guest on the newest episode of the “Pat McAfee Show,” the former WWE Champion renewed his feud with Paul, revealing to the WWE pundit why he despises the 27-year-old.
“The guy doesn’t care about nothing but himself,” Rollins said. “I can respect the hustle alright. I respect the hustle, I really do because it takes hustle to get where he’s at and to get the opportunities that he’s got. But at the end of the day, it’s about passion. No one is just going to suit up and be an NFL superstar, they’re going to get creamed. So he’s going to step into my world and he’s going to get creamed.”
Despite Rollins’ anger, McAfee praised Paul and said it’s “hard not to respect” what he’s accomplished in the WWE in such a short time. Paul’s unforgettable performance at WWE Crown Jewel, diving from the top rope into a prone Roman Reigns while holding his phone and capturing the dive, was also referenced by the former NFL punter.
Rollins took issue with fans praising Paul for that moment, stating that all of the talent who had previously jumped off the top rope should not be made to feel like it’s not significant simply because they didn’t have a camera aimed at them, adding that WWE pays people to photograph the talent.
