The WWE has seen many celebrities and non-wrestlers over the years in the company, most of whom were successful and some weren’t. Logan Paul too wasn’t always a wrestler and decided to try his hand in pro wrestling from last year, before which he was a social media influencer and an amateur boxer. However, some wrestlers are not pleased with the addition of celebrities to the industry since they believe that these individuals steal all the attention and that the corporation also pushes them for major events.
Roman Reigns has some advice to the wrestlers who are unhappy with the company ‘s decision to hire part time celebrities. Speaking with Radio Rahim, Reigns said that one should strive hard to be so good that no other tries to take the spot from them. He confidently said that nobody will ever take his spot in the company.
“Be so good that nobody can take your spot. I don’t care who they bring in, you can bring in anyone, and they ain’t going to take the Tribal Chief’s spot.”
