Graves discussed this potential dream scenario on the most recent episode of his After The Bell podcast. He explained why he thinks the WWE Universe would love the match, given the fact how hard both men have hustled over the last few years.
I’ve calculated it and tried to think ahead of all the arguments against. Ordinarily, I would say you take two celebrities from outside of WWE and you put them in the same match, you are cooking up a recipe for disaster. Not Bad Bunny and Logan Paul. I’m saying give them time to prepare. We know how much work and effort Bad Bunny and Logan Paul have both put in leading up to their epic WWE performances.
Graves stated that he would have been upset if a celebrity took a spot away from a full-time wrestler 10 years ago, but he now knows that the business is all about promotion and that celebrities help promote the industry.
Had you mentioned this to me 10 years ago when I got signed to developmental and I was in FCW, there was a chip on a lot of our shoulders. I’ve discussed this with numerous guests. I’ve talked about it with Rollins extensively. We were kind of the mentality of, “Well, we paid our dues. We worked and scratched and clawed to get here. But now we sit back and we go, “Hey, wait a minute. A rising tide raises all ships. If Bad Bunny vs. Logan Paul were to be made and advertised and promoted, everybody else in the locker room would be begging to get on that card. Much like any anytime Logan Paul fights in the boxing world, or his brother, look at — again, Jake Paul and Nate Diaz is coming up. There are a lot of up-and-coming hungry boxers who would love to just have their name on that card because it brings in eyeballs. And at the end of the day, that’s what this business is about. It’s promotion.
He concluded his rant by saying that a match between Bad Bunny and Logan Paul wouldn’t happen soon, but that if it didn’t happen, money would be left on the table.
I think there’s definitely too much money sitting on the table there to not see that at some point.
