CLEVELAND, OHIO: Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently shared his opinions on Logan Paul's growth over the last 20 months. In April 2022, Paul and The Miz defeated Dominik and Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 38.

Since then, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins have wrestled alongside The Maverick in the ring. In addition, he won the United States Championship at Crown Jewel 2023 by defeating Rey Mysterio.

Ric Flair's take on Logan Paul's growth

Logan Paul is doing better than some seasoned wrestlers, according to Ric Flair in an interview on 'Club Shay Shay'. He also mentioned the 28-year-old's training assistance from WWE legend Shawn Michaels.

"I think he's doing a real good job," Flair said. "He's better than some of the guys that have been doing it [for years], but I didn't know that Shawn Michaels was training him personally. He's not afraid to do anything. Some of that stuff he does, for a guy that hasn't done it his whole life, I love it," he said.

Paul is still making an impression in the WWE, but Flair recently signed a multi-year contract with AEW.

Another person said, "Ric will always have it. WHOOOOO the nature boy RIC FLAIR is the man." One user said, "He definitely hold some hostility towards WWE cause no. And I’m willing to admit that he’s better at it than I thought but…no."

Logan Paul's future as WWE US Champion
