Social media influencer Logan Paul has signed a contract with WWE, the organization announced on Thursday.
The pact is a multi-event deal, sources told ESPN, which will see through to 2023. Paul will compete in the ring at several WWE premium live events (formerly referred to by the Company as pay-per-views) and appear on television in between based on storylines.
Paul appeared alongside WWE Superstar Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 37 in April 2021 before making his in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38 earlier this year in a tag team match with The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio .
The Miz and Paul were victorious and then The Miz turned on Paul. On Monday’s Raw, The Miz called Paul over and apparently set the stage for a singles match at SummerSlam later this month in Nashville.
Logan Paul is the older brother of Jake Paul, another YouTube star. The younger Paul finds success in boxing with several pay-per-view headline appearances. Most recently, Jake Paul scored a knockout against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in December.
Jake Paul is scheduled to face Tommy Fury, younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, in New York on August 6.
