Come Friday night on WWE SmackDown, Logan Paul might not be returning alone. Speculation abounds after Paul's recent bold challenge to the United States Champion, Rey Mysterio. This, coming on the heels of Paul's decisive boxing win over Dillon Danis on October 14.

Although Paul's foray into WWE has showcased his promising wrestling prowess, having backup against formidable opponents like Mysterio and the Latino World Order (LWO) could be a game-changer. Fans are buzzing about the potential of fellow YouTuber and recent boxing event participant, KSI, joining Paul in the squared circle.

While KSI showcased resilience in Manchester against Tommy Fury, despite a majority decision loss after an intense six-round bout, his WrestleMania 39 antics still linger in fans' minds. Attempting a surprise intervention in Logan Paul's match against Seth Rollins dressed as a Prime energy drink, KSI's ambitious move spectacularly misfired.

The climax? A dramatic Frog Splash from Paul inadvertently sending his friend crashing through an announce table.

Logan Paul Strategic Showdown

The spotlight now focuses intently on Friday's SmackDown. With Paul's bold challenge to Rey Mysterio, the looming threat of the entire LWO faction demands strategy.

There's chatter about Paul possibly rallying support, potentially recruiting his brother, Jake Paul, to his corner. Such a move could tilt the scales in Paul's favor as he locks horns with Mysterio and LWO. But will KSI swap the boxing gloves for wrestling boots? Recently speaking with JOE, KSI shared candid thoughts about transitioning to WWE.

While recognizing the demands of professional wrestling, KSI expressed reluctance. "WWE's intense," he shared, "I respect the talent, but taking those many bumps isn't for me. I'm more a spectator." Logan Paul's WWE journey has silenced many critics.

His innate ring agility surprised many and escalated hopes of seeing him more. After a gripping face-off with Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at last year's Crown Jewel, anticipation peaks as fans keenly await to see if Paul clinches his first WWE title in the forthcoming premium live event.
