Logan Paul is a member of the current WWE roster.
The social media superstar recently signed a contract with the company that will run through 2023 with multiple Premium Live Event appearances scheduled. Paul is set to make his return to the WWE next week on RAW to confront The Miz.
Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Logan explained his decision to sign with WWE.
“It is true, I signed a multi-match deal with WWE and we announced it. It went crazy viral and I love the response. People are excited to see me in WWE. For me, there is a trifecta that I look for that decides what I do. I say this with privilege, because I can do this now because of the decades of hard work I put in. When I can mix passion, business, and media all into one thing, I’m ultimate me, happy place. Passion, when I did WrestleMania, I had so much fun. All my friends had fun, we were all smiling. It was awesome. I was looking at the clips, ‘I can’t believe that was me. Those were big jumps.’ Business, it’s smart, they pay well. WWE, it’s a big organization. Media, it’s a show. It’s great performance and entertainment. 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,”
“I’m just not a heel anymore, but if they don’t fuck with me…I will be coming for the Miz at SummerSlam. He’s delusional. He still thinks we’re partners, that we’re cool and we’re not. I will slam him hard.”Logan Paul on Impaulsive
As mentioned above, Logan Paul will be returning to the WWE to confront The Miz ahead of an expected match at SummerSlam later this month.
