WWE wanted to be involved in fight between Logan Paul and Nate Diaz

9 months ago By Sports Desk

The world of combat sports is often marked by unexpected twists and turns, and the potential boxing match between Nate Diaz and Logan Paul is no exception. In a recent revelation, it has come to light that WWE attempted to insert itself into the Diaz vs. Paul matchup, leading to a shift in Diaz’s perspective on the proposed fight. This development has sparked discussions around the authenticity of the sport and the compatibility of WWE’s entertainment-driven brand with Diaz’s “bad boy” image.

WWE’s Intrusion and Diaz’s Reaction

According to a report from ESPN, WWE sought to play a role in the anticipated boxing match between Nate Diaz and Logan Paul. The attempt to gain control over the fight did not sit well with Diaz, who was in the process of transitioning from his contract with UFC. Diaz, known for his candid and unapologetic demeanor, expressed his reservations about WWE’s involvement. He stated that he wanted to engage in a genuine fight, distancing himself from the scripted nature of WWE events.

At the heart of Diaz’s hesitation lies his identity as a true fighter. Diaz’s reputation has been built on his authenticity in the octagon, and he has been an advocate for genuine competition. His remarks against WWE’s potential interference highlight his commitment to his craft and his unwillingness to compromise his principles for the sake of spectacle. Diaz firmly asserted, “I fight for real,” making it clear that he had no intentions of participating in a theatrical match on a WWE platform.

Logan Paul, who has previously ventured into the boxing ring and now serves as a WWE signee, offered his perspective on the matter. Paul suggested that Diaz’s refusal to engage with WWE was a way of evading a potential fight with his older and stronger brother, Jake Paul. Logan defended WWE’s involvement, arguing that even within the realm of entertainment, real fighters can thrive and reach a broader audience. He emphasized that a WWE platform could offer exposure and ticket sales, ultimately benefiting both fighters.

Despite WWE’s attempt to inject itself into the Diaz vs. Paul bout, the focus remains on the upcoming boxing match. Nate Diaz is set to make his professional boxing debut against Jake Paul, Logan’s brother, on August 23 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The clash between Diaz’s genuine fighting spirit and Paul’s crossover celebrity status sets the stage for an intriguing showdown that transcends the boundaries of traditional combat sports.
