At Crown Jewel on November 4th, Logan Paul defended the United States Championship against Rey Mysterio. He pinned Mysterio with a fortunate shot, kicking off his first reign as US champion. He has gained a new admirer in a highly regarded WWE figure who joins the ranks of the luminaries lauding his efforts.
This famous person ranks Logan Paul with Brock Lesnar. Kurt Angle started well in WWE, winning many titles and the King of the Ring competition. His rookie year is regarded as one of the greatest. Inspired by Paul’s prowess in the ring, he drew parallels between Paul’s rapid ascension and the careers of himself and Brock Lesnar.
Kurt Angle says Logan Paul likely to win WWE World Championship
As a WWE legend, Angle knows what it’s like to win a championship early on; in only his ninth encounter, he became the Intercontinental Champion. The former WWE champion believes Logan Paul is exceeding expectations and learning from his errors to the point where he may one day become the WWE World Champion.
Boxing was Paul’s calling card before he joined WWE, and on October 14th, he settled a rivalry with Dillon Danis by knocking him out.

On the True Geordie Podcast, Angle talks about Logan Paul’s future in WWE. He stated, “I’m literally impressed by his skills, and I’m really happy for him. He just won the US Title. I think that’s a great accomplishment for only wrestling your eighth match. I will tell you this: I won the Intercontinental Title wrestling my ninth match, so I know the feeling. He’s on that level with me and Brock [Lesnar].”
What is next for Logan Paul in WWE?
Logan Paul announced on Twitter not long ago that he will be attending the 2024 Elimination Chamber in Perth, Germany. The Elimination Chamber is well-loved by WWE fans for its intense and distinctive style, mixing aspects of a cage match and Hell in a Cell.
Other heavy hitters like Rhea Ripley and Grayson Waller will be in the spotlight with Logan Paul. It’s still unclear whether or not stars like Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, and Cody Rhodes will appear.
Australia was informed by Maverick that he will be appearing on the Elimination Chamber. We haven’t heard if he intends to defend his WWE United States Championship in this bout or not. Since his popularity skyrocketed when he won the US belt, WWE may have ambitious plans for him in Australia.
