Here’s everything you need to know.
Logan Paul signs multi-year contract with WWE
Logan Paul visited his Instagram page on Thursday, June 30th to share news with his fans.
The YouTuber uploaded two photos from when he visited WWE headquarters for a contract.
Pictured are WWE’s interim CEO and Chairman, Stephanie McMahon, and her husband Paul “Triple H” Levesque, former WWE star and VP of Global Talent Strategy and Development.
He outlined the post with the caption, ‘I just signed a WWE contract.’
The 27-year-old star is believed to have signed a multi-year contract with WWE for an undisclosed number of ‘premium live events’ over 2022 and 2023.
Logan Paul digs up Miz.
Logan Paul teamed up with the Miz at WrestleMania 38 in April and turned his head.
They formed a tag team to fight the rich team of Rey and Dominik Mysterio. Nevertheless, the match ended with the unexpected duo Paul and Miz winning.
However, towards the end, Ms. suddenly betrayed Paul by beating Paul with a skull-crushing finale (Ms.’s finishing move).
Also, Paul seems ready to continue the story with Miz.
In the video while Paul was signing the contract, he said, ‘Hey, I just signed the contract. That’s a big deal. But after all, it’s my contract, so I’ll add a little bit here.’
But later I write ‘I’m come 4 u @Miz’ on the back of the contract.
Paul would go on to tell Miz. ‘Yes, assuming you can read it.’
According to the source, the YouTuber is going to face off with Miz for his first paid appearance. It is reported that the event will be held at SummerSlam at the end of July.
WM had a great game.
At the end of the day, we are all content creators and this is a huge win. Although WWE is currently struggling a bit, it makes sense.

Another tweet said, ‘Looks like you’re starting to watch WWE again.’
However, some were simply not impressed with the announcement.

TBF, this was a good move on the WWE side. They tested him in a previous match to see if he was good. He did well in that game, look where he is. Let’s not forget how many social media are following this person and what that will do to E.
