- Logan Paul has five key abilities that could see him develop into a WWE champion.
- That’s according to pro wrestling icon 1-2-3 Kid, aka X-Pac.
- Paul does not currently have intentions of committing solely to WWE.
Logan Paul could be a WWE champion in the future, according to pro wrestler Sean Waltman, who is better known under the ring names 1-2-3 Kid and X-Pac.
Paul, 27, is a career chameleon having achieved fame as a YouTuber, internet celebrity, podcast host, exhibition boxer, and professional wrestler.
He has worked two WWE matches to date and they’ve both been on the grandest of stages that the market-leading wrestling firm can offer — WrestleMania, and SummerSlam.
At WrestleMania 38, Paul teamed up with The Miz to defeat the Mysterios in a tag team match. Months later, he defeated The Miz in a singles match.

X-Pac, currently signed to WWE under a legends contract, listed five things that make Paul stand out from the crowd when speaking to TMZ Sports.
Here they are:
- “He’s a natural man.”
- “Huge future.”
- “A lot of people can be great athletes like him, but he has like an aptitude for this, man.”
- “His timing is really good.”
- “He grasps the psychology of a match.”
X-Pac added: “I got nothing but praise for that guy. He could be like WWE champion material at some point. Gotta call it like you see it.”
There is one glaring issue, though
There is, however, a glaring issue with this: It’s unclear how frequently — if at all — Paul will compete in WWE.
Tweeting shortly after SummerSlam, Paul said he thinks he might have found his calling.

But the online sensation may not return to the WWE all year, and has other commitments such as his podcast “Impaulsive.”
He also reportedly wants to return to boxing exhibitions for a December show.
“We’re getting back in the ring,” Paul told The Pat McAfee show recently. “We’re going to go from professional sport to professional sport. I want to get a fight in December.”
