Logan Paul has revealed that he’s inked a new contract with the WWE as he still has goals of becoming a world champion in professional wrestling. 

Over the last few years, Logan Paul has dipped his toe in a few different things outside of YouTube. The ‘Maverick’ was at the front of the YouTube boxing revolution by fighting KSI and Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, started a massive podcast, and has even appeared in movies too. 

However, the most successful venture that he’s been involved in outside of YouTube is arguably professional wrestling. The imPaulsive host made his WWE debut at WrestleMania 38 in 2022, joining The Miz in defeating Rey and Dominik Mysterio. He leaped to stardom after that, getting a world championship title shot in Saudi Arabia against Roman Reigns. 

He’s had viral moments at both SummerSlam and Royal Rumble, and has also captured a singles title by winning the United States Championship – something he still holds. And, ahead of this year’s Royal Rumble event, he’s penned a new deal with WWE. 

Logan Paul now has “full time job” with WWE

That’s right, Logan Paul isn’t disappearing from the WWE anytime soon, as the YouTuber-turned-wrestler revealed he’s inked a new deal with them to stick around for a little while yet. 

“The WWE renewed my contract, breaking news, and I figured if this is going to be a full-time job, maybe I stop treating this as a hobby,” Logan said on Instagram before showing off some training footage for his upcoming match at the 2024 Royal Rumble. 

Naturally, with this being pro wrestling, he wasn’t just revealing his new deal. Logan also included footage of an altercation with WWE star Kevin Owens ahead of their match. 

It’s also interesting to note that Logan is now calling the WWE a “full time job” instead of just a side gig. He has, of course, been pretty dedicated to this point, but he’s hardly a weekly feature on WWE television. 

His work has earned rave reviews from fans and fellow wrestlers, and with the WWE now selling new TV rights to Netflix, he could play an important role moving forward.
