The YouTuber made his WWE debut at Wrestlemania 38 at the beginning of April this year, where he was teamed up with The Miz against the father-son duo that is The Mysterios. His surprise victory performance impressed fans, and The Miz even turned against him at the end of the bout. 

Fans and the WWE alike were impressed with how well Paul fit in with the theatricality and athleticism required in Wrestlemania.

He whipped out the Three Amigos and even a Frog Splash in his official debut. Afterward, he was called a “natural” and his brother Jake boasted that he had told WWE fans they would “bow down” to Logan.

After the fight, wrestling writer Bryan Alvarez tweeted, “You can hate the guy but Logan Paul was a total natural out there.”

Paul spoke to talkSPORT prior to the Wrestlemania match and told them that he would “probably” like to go full-time with the WWE. 

“If I continue my involvement in WWE, hopefully I can bring stuff to the table that switches it up,” he said. “I’m an innovator and I’m always here to pitch ideas and at the end of the day I’m creative. If I can get more involved in the behind the scenes stuff with Vince’s approval, that would be fun.

“To be honest, bro… Probably. Yeah, probably. It just has to make sense with my schedule. I’m doing so much stuff and I have to really be careful where I allocate my energy. This happened with boxing. At first I did it, I tried it out and I loved it, so I kept doing it.”

News of Logan Paul’s signing with the WWE has left sports Twitter abuzz with excitement.
