Logan Paul: Reasoning for LA Knight Match

Paul’s pitch was based on his desire to face off against two specific WWE superstars: Ricochet and LA Knight. His reasoning was twofold, as he revealed on his imPAULsive podcast recently.

Paul wanted to challenge this status quo and take away LA Knight’s popularity in a single night.
