Logan Paul, the social media influencer turned boxer and professional wrestler, has solidified his commitment to sports entertainment by signing a multi-year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The 28-year-old announced the signing on Monday via his Instagram account, expressing excitement for his continued journey in the wrestling business.
Though specific terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed, it is known that the contract extends for multiple years. The initial agreement between Paul and WWE, signed in 2022, was structured as a one-year deal encompassing several events.
During this time, Paul participated in multiple high-profile WWE pay-per-view shows, albeit as a part-time performer. With the new agreement, Paul's schedule is expected to stay the same. Still, his long-term association with WWE demonstrates the organization's confidence in his potential as a valuable talent.
Logan Paul Grateful for WWE Opportunity
In an interview with ESPN, Paul expressed gratitude for the opportunity, stating, "I feel incredibly blessed to have found something that I'm good at, at 28 years old. And the fact that the organization believes I'm good enough to continue hopefully building this WWE legacy is mind-blowing." Paul's involvement with WWE dates back to 2021 when he made guest appearances on television.
By the following year, he prepared for his in-ring debut, eventually performing at WrestleMania 38. Critics lauded Paul for his athleticism and adaptability in the ring, leading to his official signing with the promotion a few months later.
Recently, Paul participated in WrestleMania 39, facing off against Seth Rollins in a high-stakes match during the two-night event. Known for his daring high-flying moves, Paul made headlines when he crashed through his business partner KSI after leaping from the top rope to the outside of the ring.
Although Paul has hinted at a possible return to boxing, it remains unclear whether his new WWE contract will impede such plans. This news comes on the heels of WWE selling a majority share to Endeavor, intending to merge the wrestling organization with the UFC before going public later this year.
Despite Endeavor owning both entities, Vince McMahon continues to oversee WWE operations, with Dana White maintaining control of the UFC. Paul's new contract was negotiated by McMahon's son-in-law, Paul "Triple H" Levesque, who leads WWE's creative team.
As Paul's wrestling career continues to flourish, fans can expect the versatile entertainer to make an even more significant impact on the WWE Universe.
