Nick Kyrgios Makes Wild Conspiracy Claims on Jake Paul’s ‘IMPAULSIVE’ Podcast

The one and only Nick Kyrgios landed himself on the IMPAULSIVE podcast and it didn’t disappoint. On the episode, the Aussie tennis rebel chatted with YouTube sensation and boxing “legend” Logan Paul about everything from his explosive career to his beliefs in conspiracies. With a massive 4.4 million subscribers, this show has seen some wild moments, but Kyrgios brought the heat like a tennis ball served at 200 mph (or like one of his on-court temper tantrums). From flat Earthers to fake moon landings and even ancient aliens building the pyramids, the 27-year-old wasn’t afraid to unleash his inner wild child on the show.

“I don’t think the pyramids are man-made,” Kyrgios declared.

“No way. How do they line up in perfect symmetry all around the Earth?” Paul said

“The doors are pretty big, and we as humans don’t need doors as big as those ones,” Kyrgios added, referring to the pyramid entryways.

Another host chimed in: “But other species…”

(We can neither confirm nor deny whether the boys sparked one up before hitting record)

During the rambling conversation with Logan Paul, Kyrgios also weighed in on the flat Earth theory, admitting that he wasn’t sure what this true anymore.

“I don’t know what to believe anymore,” he said with a smile.

When asked who he thought the greatest tennis player of all time was, Kyrgios compared Roger Federer to Michael Jordan.

Federer and Jordan are very similar,” Kyrgios said. “But I think Novak (Djokovic) is statistically is better.”

However, when asked if tennis players from the past, like Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, and Andre Agassi, were in the conversation, Kyrgios shook his head.

“No way,” Kyrgios said.

Because I think (Michael) Jordan could still play (in the NBA) in this era, whereas those guys would get absolutely snipped in this era.

Kyrgios also spoke about the possibility of retiring if he had beaten world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the All-England Club final.

“That was my chance, that was really my chance,” he said on Wednesday’s episode.

“If I’d honestly won, I think I would have retired at least for a year or two.”

Kyrgios firmed up his desire to win a slam one day but conceded that it’s “almost impossible” to do so.

“It’s tough because you play four or five hours and then you have one day off and then you have to do it again,” he said.

“And then that’s seven times in a row to win a grand slam. So it’s almost impossible.

“I think I can win a grand slam. Wimbledon I was right there. I was two sets away.

“I won the first set and I thought ‘this is it’. And then I just didn’t stay in the moment and he stayed super composed.

“I feel like I could do that. It’s weird, but I feel like it’s not even for me though.

“I feel like it’s for everyone else. All the haters as well. I could finally just rest. I could just go home and sleep in my bed and not deal with the s***.”

Kyrgios also candidly revealed that he had watched Logan Paul’s videos half naked in bed before becoming famous, and expressed disbelief at how far he had come.

“It’s just crazy. I’m not supposed to be here,” he said.

“Even here. I can’t believe I’m doing this right now, to be honest. I’d watch you guys on TikTok in my bed like half-naked in my bed. And now I’m sitting here.”

While it remains to be seen whether Kyrgios will achieve his dream of winning a Grand Slam, there’s no doubt that the Australian tennis star will continue to keep fans entertained with his off-the-court antics and candid interviews. Watch the full podcast episode above.
