Logan Paul is officially signed with WWE – and this time it’s not a one off.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer-turned-wrestler announced his signing with the company on Thursday, posing for photos with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
Mike Coppinger ESPN reported that the deal is a “multi-event” deal that will run through 2023. This will include multiple premium live events, although the exact number is not known.
The 27-year-old made his WWE in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38, teaming with The Miz to defeat Rey and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team match. The Miz turned on Paul after the match, giving him a Skull Crushing Finale, setting up a storyline that continued Monday on Raw.
While The Miz maintained that he and Paul will be competing for tag team gold, it’s very likely that they’ll compete in a one-on-one match at SummerSlam. Paul was unhappy with The Miz when signing his contract.
Along with his brother, Jake, Logan Paul has recently started getting into the world of boxing. His most recent fight was an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last June.
The social media star and her brother have received heavy criticism for their past actions. Logan received such criticism in 2017 and 2018 after posting a video of a man hanging himself in a so-called “suicide forest” at Mount Fuji in Japan. He also made insensitive comments about the LGBTQ+ community and had his YouTube channel demonetized for a series of controversies.
