In a recent episode of his Impaulsive podcast, WWE United States Champion Logan Paul discussed several topics, including the criticism of WWE and Prime Energy’s mat sponsorship agreement.

“One of the coolest moments of our life, you know, major achievement, major milestone for our brand and the company, getting that center ring spot is interesting, it’s getting more positive reviews, but I think the diehard wrestling fans are like, they’re really upset man.

It’s never been done, and Vince was always really protective of the mat, and not putting any brands on it, but in this new era, which it is, no matter how you cut it, TKO is a publicly traded company, they’ve got to meet a bottom line.

That spot was going to be sold, we saw an opportunity, and potentially an opportunity to make people hate me even more, because I am a heel and that’s kind of the angle I took, I was like f*** y’all, I’m going to stamp everything about this with me, so you’re reminded of just what my aim is, to take over in this company.

If we don’t have this spot forever, which who knows what will happen, it’ll be someone else, and I promise you, if you’re a diehard WWE fan, you’ll forget about it, it’ll start to just be standard practice and I don’t think it’s going to be as distracting as y’all think.”
