Paul describes Speed as an internet phenom. 

For the second consecutive year at WrestleMania, Logan Paul had a streamer/YouTube personality dressed as a PRIME bottle. At WrestleMania 39, his business partner K.S.I. sported the suit and this year, it was IShowSpeed

Speed took a gut kick and an RKO from Randy Orton. On the newest episode of IMPAULSIVE, Logan stated that when pitching Speed to WWE, it took some ‘massaging’ and ‘finessing’ to bring the idea to fruition. 

When I was pitching him (IShowSpeed) to the WWE, it took a little massaging, it took a little finessing for us to convince them that we had this young creator who by the way is still a teenager. The kid’s 19 years old, who’s just an internet phenom. Everything he touches goes crazy viral because he’s got that charismatic, contagious energy. I don’t know.

Logan Paul scored the pin fall win over Kevin Owens in the Triple Threat to hold onto the United States Championship. Paul has been reigning as champion since WWE Crown Jewel.

WrestleMania XL was Paul’s second defense of the title.
