On being hooked to the lie detector, he went on to speak about Logan Paul too. He said-
“I think he’s a scumbag, I think he’s egotistical, he bullies people that don’t have the same opinion as him, he makes them sign NDAs and lawsuits and all this s***, I just don’t respect him as a man or a boxer, I think he’s good in WWE, I’ll give him that but I don’t respect him as a person.”
He further added-
“He’s terrible, he goes down in one, he’s not a fighter, he’s been spoonfed everything he’s ever had in his entire life and I’m just going to break him. He’s never seen the kind of tenacity that I bring so he’s going to f***ing break under the pressure. I don’t think he has power, I think he has arm punches, skinny legs and all upper body, it’s arm punches and I won’t even feel them.”
