WWE Logan Paul Ryan Garcia Lawsuit Prime Hydration

WWE star Logan Paul files defamation lawsuit against boxer Ryan Garcia over false claims about Prime Hydration products. Viral drama ensues.

WWE and YouTube sensation Logan Paul made headlines on Friday as he addressed his decision to take legal action against boxer Ryan Garcia for defamation. In a video shared on X, Paul accused Garcia of spreading false information about his Prime Hydration company and its products.

According to reports from TMZ Sports, Paul initially announced the lawsuit on Instagram on Thursday, stating, "Today we begin to hold those accountable who've damaged our brand for attention while we correct the narrative. We're here to stay and will continue to change the world of hydration with bold flavors and creative innovation."

Garcia has been vocal on social media in criticizing Paul's Prime drinks, making claims that they are harmful to health. The lawsuit filed by Prime against Garcia includes allegations of defamation, trade libel, violations of the Lanham Act, unfair competition, and unjust enrichment.

In his video on Friday, Paul revealed that he and Garcia were once friends, but Garcia turned on him and began attacking his brand. Paul suggested that Garcia's actions were motivated by revenge, especially after Paul questioned Garcia's belief in the flat Earth theory during a podcast appearance.

Paul also called out Garcia for testing positive for the banned substance ostarine following his victory over Prime-sponsored athlete Devin Haney. Although Garcia defeated Haney in April via majority decision, his positive drug test could potentially overturn the result.

The lawsuit highlights Garcia's social media post where he claimed, "I drank PRIME and I tested positive for ostarine." Prime, co-founded by Paul and YouTuber KSI, has seen significant success in the sports drink market since its launch in 2022.

With reported sales of $51.7 million over a four-week period, Prime has secured sponsorship deals with top athletes like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Judge. Additionally, Prime has partnered with WWE for branding opportunities at premium live events, showcasing the brand's continued growth and success in the industry.
