On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, The Miz cut a promo confirming Logan Paul’s return to wrestling, with the two slated to team up in the upcoming SummerSlam PPV.

Rumors surrounding Logan Paul’s return to the WWE have been circulating for weeks now but we finally have confirmation on his next appearance.

Ahead of Monday Night Raw, Paul took to Twitter and uploaded images of him training inside the ring.

Later that night on Raw, The Miz came out and confirmed Paul’s return, stating that, “Logan Paul and The Miz will return as the most must-see WWE tag team in history at SummerSlam.”

And while wrestling fans might not be shocked to hear that Paul is returning, it may come as a surprise that he will be teaming up with The Miz again.

Their last tag team match was at Wrestlemania 38, where they took on father/son duo Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

Paul and The Miz did manage to secure the win, with fans taking to social media to express their shock and respect for what was a very impressive showing from Paul.

After the final bell rang out, however, The Miz turned on Paul and began to attack him. After the attack, Paul’s post-match interview was an explosive string of insults and expletives.

The Miz betrayed Logan Paul at the end of their Wrestlemania 38 match.

So while the two may be teaming up again for SummerSlam, the chances of a potential feud between them is quite high. SummerSlam could see Paul seek revenge on The Miz, causing the two to then battle it out at a later date. 

Given how much heat Paul was getting during his last stint with the WWE, this could be a chance for The Miz to have another run as a face, or at least, take on the role against Paul’s annoying heel character.

While his SummerSlam appearance has been confirmed, nothing else has been said about whether he will appear on the WWE before the PPV.

When is SummerSlam 2022 taking place?
