Add Hall of Famer X-Pac to the growing list of people who think highly of Logan Paul‘s wrestling future — the legend tells TMZ Sports the newly-signed WWE Superstar is a “natural” and has the serious makings of a champion one day.
We spoke with Pac — a two-time inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame — out at LAX this week, and he was effusive in his praise of Paul, who won his first singles match as a competitor over The Miz at SummerSlam last week.
“He’s a natural, man,” Pac said. “Huge future.”
Pac admits he used to not think so highly of the Maverick following his suicide forest video scandal … but can tell Paul has truly grown as a person.
Pac — a former NWO and D-Generation X member — said what separates Paul from other newcomers is his athletic ability coupled with his intuitive feel for knowing what to do inside the squared circle.
“A lot of people can be great athletes like him, but he has like an aptitude for this, man. His timing is really good. He grasps the psychology of a match.”
“I got nothing but praise for that guy,” he added. “He could be like WWE champion material at some point.”
“Gotta call it like you see it.”
Since making his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38, Logan has been setting the WWE on fire … earning the respect of fans in the WWE Universe and higher-ups like “The Game” Triple H.
Raw women’s champion Bianca Belair echoed the same sentiments as Pac when she spoke to us recently, lauding Paul as a natural … saying she could see him as WWE champ one day.
