Logan Paul's recent victory over Rey Mysterio, crowning him the WWE United States Champion at WWE Crown Jewel 2023, has been a significant talking point in the wrestling community. Amidst his rising fame, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle shared valuable insights for Paul during his guest appearance on the "True Geordie" podcast.

Angle, known for his legendary career and expertise in the ring, advised Paul to focus his efforts. “'Try not to spread yourself too thin,'" he cautioned, referencing Paul's diverse engagements ranging from his Prime drink brand to his YouTube channel.

Angle emphasized the importance of prioritizing and excelling in a few select areas, particularly if Paul's passion lies in wrestling. “'If you love wrestling, focus on it. Make it your first love, and make it your first priority,'" Angle advised, encouraging Paul to strive for the status of world champion.

Intriguingly, Angle confessed his initial skepticism about Paul's entry into wrestling, seeing it as a mere extension of his quest for fame via YouTube. However, he expressed admiration for Paul's skills, pondering why the latter hadn't pursued boxing or professional wrestling earlier.

Paul's Rising WWE Stature

Paul's wrestling career has been meteoric since joining WWE, with eight matches to his credit. His most notable match was at WWE Crown Jewel 2022, where he challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, although unsuccessfully.

Looking ahead, Paul is scheduled to appear at the WWE Elimination Chamber premium live event in Perth, Australia, in February. His participation in this high-profile event further cements his status in the wrestling world.

This development in Paul's career is not just a testament to his athletic prowess but also highlights the evolving landscape of WWE, where personalities from diverse backgrounds are making a significant impact. Paul's transition from a YouTube sensation to a prominent WWE figure illustrates the intersection of entertainment, athleticism, and social media influence in modern wrestling.
