Here is everything you need to know.
Logan Paul signs multi-year deal with WWE
Logan Paul took to his Instagram page to share the news with his fans on 30th June Thursday.
The YouTuber uploaded two photos of the time he visited WWE’s headquarters to sign the contract.
The pictures featured WWE’s interim CEO and chairperson, Stephanie McMahon, and her husband Paul “Triple H” Levesque who is a former WWE star and executive vice president for global talent strategy and development.
He outlined the post with the caption, ‘Just signed the WWE contract.’
The 27-year-old star supposedly signed a multi-year deal with WWE for an undisclosed number of ‘premium live events’ across 2022 and 2023.
Logan Paul takes a dig at The Miz
Logan Paul made heads turn when he teamed up with The Miz in Wrestlemania 38 back in April.
They formed a tag team to fight against the father-and-son team of Rey and Dominik Mysterio. Regardless, the match ended with the unlikely duo Paul and Miz winning it.
However, suddenly towards the end, Miz betrayed Paul by hitting him with a Skull-Crushing Finale (The Miz’s finish move).
Additionally, it seems like Paul is ready to continue his storyline with Miz.
While signing the contract, Paul mentioned in a video, ‘So look, I’ve just signed my contract – it is a big deal. But after all, it is my contract, so I’m going to make a little addition here.’
However, later scrawls ‘I’m coming 4 u @Miz’ on the back of the contract.
Paul continued, likely addressing Miz, ‘Yeah, you read that right, assuming you can read.’
According to sources, the YouTuber will supposedly fight Miz for his debut pay-per-view appearance. It is reported that it will be held at SummerSlam in late July.

At the end of the day, we're all content creators, and this is a huge win, although WWE is going through some ish right now, it makes sense.
Fans react to Logan Paul’s entry into WWE
Social media seems to be divided over the news of Logan Paul signing a multi-year contract with WWE.
Some users celebrated the news.
One fan wrote, ‘Congrats, the Mania performance blew my expectations so can’t wait for what’s in store for the future!’
Another tweeted, ‘Looks like I’m about to start watching the WWE again.’
However, some people were simply not impressed by the announcement.
A user shared, ‘News Flash: NO. ONE. CARES.’
While another added, ‘Sigh, This is why I watch WWE less and less.’
TBF, this was a good move in WWE’s part. They were testing him out in his previous matches to see if he would be any good. He did well in those matches, & look where it’s got him. Let’s not forget of how much of a social media following this man has & what that’ll do for the E.— Connor (@ConnorTheSnake) June 30, 2022
I'm on board with Logan Paul signing with WWE. At 'Mania he proved he's not only a natural but also invested in what he's doing too. I can't believe I'm tweeting this but there we go— Ross Tweddell (@RossOnRasslin) June 30, 2022
