Last week on SmackDown, Logan Paul announced that PRIME was the first-ever center ring sponsor in WWE history, and the sponsorship will commence at WrestleMania 40.

On a recent edition of his “Impaulsive” podcast, Paul addressed the backlash to the sponsorship. He said,

“Getting that center ring spot is interesting. It’s more positive reviews, but I think the die hard wrestling fans are really upset. It’s never been done, and Vince [Vince McMahon] was always really protective of the mat and not putting any brands on it, but in this new era, which it is, no matter how you cut it. TKO is a publicly traded company, they have to meet a bottom line. That spot was going to be sold. We saw an opportunity, and potentially an opportunity to make people hate me even more, because I am a heel, that’s kind of the angle I took. F**k y’all, I’m going to stamp everything about this with me so you’re reminded of just what my aim is; to takeover. If we don’t have this spot forever, who knows, it’ll be somebody else. I promise, if you’re a die-hard WWE fan, you’ll forget about it. It’ll start to be standard practice and I don’t think it’ll be as distracting as y’all think.”

He continued, “It’s gonna be a big WrestleMania. There’s not much [else] to say. I am very excited to be a part of the WWE at this time where they’re making moves like they did with PRIME in the middle of the ring. They’re bringing back some of the biggest superstars they’ve ever had. I’m kind of finding my voice as a wrestler. I think my ultimate goal would be to turn people who maybe didn’t care about it into casual fans.”

During the conversation, KSI also shared his experiences in WWE.

KSI was driven through a table at WrestleMania 39 and took an RKO from Randy Orton on last week’s episode of WWE SmackDown.

You can check out some additional highlights from the podcast below:

On taking the RKO: “Honestly, one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. He f**ked me up. He grabbed my head and slammed me into his bicep. My nose is smushed, my lip got cut up. The inside of my lip is destroyed from my teeth slamming into his bicep. I was like, ‘f**k.’ It hurts. It f**king hurts.”

On whether he could wrestle full-time: “I like to see myself as the Shane McMahon of WWE. I don’t mind getting a Stone Cold Stunner. I just want one suplex.”
