SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Chris Jericho says that outside talent putting a spotlight on wrestling is always great for business.
In an interview on the Howie Mandel podcast, Jericho talked in detail about WWE’s relationship with Paul and what he can do for the company.
“I think it’s awesome,” Jericho said of Logan Paul’s success in WWE. “Anytime you can get somebody that’s from the outside world coming into wrestling and putting a spotlight on it, it’s great. Logan Paul’s good for the business, because it gets more eyeballs onto the show for people who might not watch wrestling.
“That’s the most important thing,” Jericho said of Paul being able to sell tickets. “So, I don’t care if it’s Logan Paul or Howie Mandel or the return of Steve Austin or whatever it may be, it’s stunt casting and if it works, it’s fine. There’s always going to be people that are angry that Logan Paul’s in wrestling but if it works, then you can’t worry about the people that are going to be angry.” (h/t Wrestling Inc.)
