Logan Paul signed a multi-year deal to compete in WWE. He sent shockwaves in the wrestling industry after his performance at WrestleMania and is now preparing to have a bit of a run with the company. Many fans of his questioned why he signed such a long-term deal. Now, the YouTube celebrity has given his explanation.
Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Paul explained that he wants to leverage being in the biggest pro wrestling promotions in the States. He said that he needs to show up and do work if he wants to use this as a launching pad for other opportunities down the line.
I’m excited for this journey and I am well aware of how powerful of a launch pad it can be for whatever I want to do in life. Besides this show, my visibility online is not a lot. I’m not uploading on my main channel ever. I do this show every week and I do this and that, but WWE is a good opportunity for me to leverage one of the biggest brands in the world for my own, should I show up.
Should I work hard? Go do the performances, impress the fans, and become that WWE character that is notorious or loved. I don’t know if I’m going to be a heel or babyface,
Paul first came into the company as a somewhat heel, aligning himself with the likes of Sami Zayne and most recently, The Miz. He teamed with Miz at WrestleMania earlier this year, only to be betrayed by him after their tag match against Rey Mysterio and his son, Dominik Mysterio.
Paul has stated multiple times now that he wants to wrestle Miz in a singles match at SummerSlam. It was announced last night on RAW that he’ll appear on next week’s episode. Whether or not he’ll get his wish and have the chance to knock Miz’s teeth out remains to be seen.
