Rollins, a seasoned wrestler, and Paul, a pop culture icon, made for an unlikely yet captivating pairing. The match was a significant event, not just for the wrestling community, but also for the millions of followers that Paul has amassed through his YouTube career.

Rollins acknowledged the magnitude of this event during a recent edition of the Out of Character podcast.

The inclusion of pop culture figures like Paul and Bad Bunny in WWE events is a strategic move to expand the wrestling industry’s reach.

Rollins recognized the opportunity this presented for him to showcase his skills to a broader audience.

“It was a great opportunity for me to have a spotlight with a guy who has a megaphone on him no matter what he does,” Rollins explained.

“To be a part of that, and to try to really take my act to the next level and to get it in front of people that may have never seen it before, I was really looking forward to that.”

A Favourite WrestleMania Match

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the match, given Paul’s relative inexperience in the wrestling ring, Rollins was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. He praised Paul’s athleticism and the quality of the match, which exceeded his expectations.

“Obviously, [with] Logan, I didn’t know what to expect entirely. I had not really worked with him at all prior to [the] Royal Rumble. But [he is] super athletic, so I knew going in we were going to be able to kind of work with that. And it turned out to be one of my favourite WrestleMania matches I’ve ever had, actually.”
