Logan Paul has revealed his reasons for decision to sign with WWE.
On June 30, WWE announced that social media star Logan Paul had signed a contract with the company.
Paul made his in-ring debut in a win alongside The Miz against Rey and Dominik Mysterio at WrestleMania 38. After the match, Miz turned on Logan by laying him out with the Skull Crushing Finale.
Speaking on the latest edition of his Impaulsive podcast, Paul explained why he signed with WWE.
“It is true, I signed a multi-match deal with WWE and we announced it. It went crazy viral and I love the response. People are excited to see me in WWE. For me, there is a trifecta that I look for that decides what I do. I say this with privilege, because I can do this now because of the decades of hard work I put in. When I can mix passion, business, and media all into one thing, I’m ultimate me, happy place. Passion, when I did WrestleMania, I had so much fun. All my friends had fun, we were all smiling. It was awesome. I was looking at the clips, ‘I can’t believe that was me. Those were big jumps.’ Business, it’s smart, they pay well. WWE, it’s a big organization. Media, it’s a show. It’s great performance and entertainment. I’m excited for this journey and I am well aware of how powerful of a launch pad it can be for whatever I want to do in life. Besides this show, my visibility online is not a lot. I’m not uploading on my main channel ever. I do this show every week and I do this and that, but WWE is a good opportunity for me to leverage one of the biggest brands in the world for my own, should I show up. Should I work hard. Go do the performances, impress the fans, and become that WWE character that is notorious or loved. I don’t know if I’m going to be a heel or babyface.”
When asked if he would prefer to be a heel or babyface, Logan’s co-hosts said he wants to be liked, which Paul replied:
“I’m just not a heel anymore, but if they don’t fuck with me…I will be coming for the Miz at SummerSlam. He’s delusional. He still thinks we’re partners, that we’re cool and we’re not. I will slam him hard.”
The Miz has been building a feud with Logan Paul for SummerSlam on Raw over the past few weeks. On the July 11 edition, it was announced that Logan will return to the show on the July 18 episode.
A bout between Miz and Paul has not been officially announced for SummerSlam on July 30 yet.
During the podcast, Logan noted that he has two appearances set for before SummerSlam.
