UNITED STATES: Logan Paul, the American YouTube sensation, officially signed a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment on Thursday. The following is how the company announced the news on social media: “BREAKING: @loganpaul has signed a WWE contract.”
Logan Paul also shared the news with his fans via Instagram, where he can be seen with WWE interim CEO Stephanie McMohan and Triple H, who is holding the contract. “Just signed with the WWE,” the YouTuber captioned the video.
According to ESPN, Paul agreed to sign a multi-event contract that would include appearances in various WWE premium live events (previously known as pay-per-views) and appearances on WWE weekly episodes (SmackDown).
The 27-year-old made his official WWE debut at Wrestlemania XXXVIII, competing in his first tag-team match alongside The Miz against Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. However, following the fight, Miz turned on Paul, forcing the social media sensation to call him out during his unexpected signing.
The YouTuber-turned-wrestler shared photos from his visit to WWE HQ, including one with a scrawled note for The Miz that read, “COMING 4 U @MIZ.”
In a recent press conference, WWE confirmed that the former teammates would no longer be allies. “After rumours that they might work together again, Paul made it clear that he’s out for payback at SummerSlam,” WWE said in a press conference.
Paul and his brother Jake Paul began their careers as YouTube content creators. In recent years, the pair has pursued new interests, with Jake Paul entering the boxing ring and Logan Paul joining the WWE. Paul is also a Pokemon card collector, a business owner, and a boxer with varying degrees of success.
Logan Paul also has his podcast, ‘Impaulsive,’ which has nearly 4 million YouTube subscribers and features celebrities, athletes, comedians, business moguls, and other guests. Paul’s main YouTube channel currently has 23.5 million subscribers.
