Logan Paul has signed a new multi-year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to continue his career in professional wrestling. The 28-year-old social media personality turned boxer started out as a part-time performer with the organization back in 2022.
While the terms of the new contract were not disclosed, Paul has now committed to WWE for multiple years as he continues to develop into a notable talent for the organization.
“I feel incredibly blessed to have found something that I’m good at, at 28 years old,” said Paul. “And the fact that the organization believes I’m good enough to continue hopefully building this WWE legacy is mind blowing.”
Paul’s journey with WWE started when he made a few guest appearances on television in 2021. The following year, he started training for an in-ring debut and made his professional wrestling debut at WrestleMania 38. His athleticism and adaptability were praised during the match, which resulted in his signing with the promotion a few months later.
At WrestleMania 39, Paul fought against Seth Rollins in a high-profile matchup during the two-night event. Paul, who is well known for his high-flying moves, crashed through his business partner KSI after jumping off the top rope to the outside of the ring.
While Paul’s passion for boxing is known, it remains unclear whether his new deal with WWE might prevent him from making a comeback in the boxing ring anytime soon.
The news of Paul’s contract signing comes after WWE sold a majority share in the company to Endeavor, with plans to merge with the UFC before going public later this year. Despite both organizations being owned by Endeavor, Vince McMahon still runs the show at WWE, while Dana White leads the UFC.
The deal with Paul was arranged by WWE’s creative team led by Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who is also McMahon’s son-in-law. As a remarkable talent, Paul’s talents will continue to play a vital role in WWE, thereby cementing his position on the top tier and in the hearts of professional wrestling fans worldwide.
