This is not the first time they announce a fight, but a match never happened. Will it be different this time? It’s not ImPaulsible if you ask Logan.
Who is Logan Paul?
Logan Alexander Paul is a 27 years old professional wrestler for WWE. He is also a social media star with 23 million subscribers on his own YouTube channel, and has ranked on the Forbes list for the highest paid YouTube creators in 2017, 2018, and 2021.
Logan has been running the Impaulsive podcast since November 2018, which has over 4 million Youtube subscribers at the moment. Meantime, he
Logan first got his start on the popular Vine app before he moved to the YouTube platform. Like most internet superstars he tried acting, he appeared on “Bizaardvark” and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and starred in the movie “The Thinning.”
Just like Cobra, Logan also tasted social media outrage. He was canceled over controversial video he took while visiting “Suicide forest” in Japan. Eventually, Logan was given a second chance.
Andrew vs. Logan
Although Andrew, as a four-time kickboxing world champion, retired from fighting, he is willing to make a comeback if he receives an offer that makes sense. In August this year, in the Night Shift, Logan called out Tate for a fight. Since then, many things have happened, including Andrew’s ban from social media.
Later, during Logan’s podcast Impaulsive he changed his mind and said “I don’t feel like platforming this guy, I don’t feel like giving him the blessing of being my dance partner in the ring especially after the social media have made it very clear how they feel about this guy. ” And Logan made it very clear also.
The controversial boxer accused Paul of being “a parrot” and “a clown”, and as a part of the Matrix he doesn’t have right to his own opinion because he is afraid of being canceled again. Many of Tate’s fans pointed fingers at Logan for being a hypocrite and coward who should show empathy for Andrew’s situation.
However, two months later Logan made a U-turn again and called out Cobra for a match. He was on Sean O’Malley’s podcast and said “I’m fighting January 14th, I’m looking for an opponent. Tate? What’s up? Opportunity’s on the table, you don’t have to fight for free. Brother, we would even pay you!”
Andrew published on Gettr a statement on fighting Logan Paul:
“Nothing is more important to Logan Paul than being liked and being talked about. He fears and walks away from any real challenge and continues to play fight in the WWE.
Logan keeps using my name for headlines to try and further his relevancy; however, he knows that my skills and expertise in any ring are unmatched by him.
His brother, Jake, even though we haven’t always seen eye to eye, has been changing the boxing industry for the better.
Better pay, better benefits, more awareness for women in the sport and he puts in the work. He has a purpose that he is fulfilling. Logan Paul has no purpose.
If the terms are fair to both parties, I will fight Logan in the cage and destroy him.
I have already contacted and confirmed this with a mutual contact. It is time for Logan to pay the price.
I will not allow him to earn more money than me for his destruction, as a clown like him, with a mediocre online income, would happily sacrifice his pride for money.
I promised I would fight him for free, and I meant it.
He can fly to Romania and knock on my door any day of the week and get the living fuck kicked out of him.
When I said fight, I didn't mean sport.
If he recovers, he can continue to live in his brother's shadow where he belongs.”
After all these big words and threats fans and haters will be thrilled to watch them beating each other in the ring. This epic fight would probably take place in the Octagon. However, until they step into the ring against one another, there’s always a chance for someone to cancel the battle, make a U-turn again, etc.
