Logan Paul Explains Decision To Sign With WWE

On June 30, WWE announced that Logan Paul had signed a contract with WWE.

Paul was active on WWE television in the lead up to WrestleMania 38 where he teamed with The Miz to battle The Mysterios (Rey & Dominik Mysterio). After the bout, Miz turned on Paul and hit him with the Skull Crushing Finale.

Before his signing was official, Miz said on WWE Raw that Paul would be returning to WWE at SummerSlam.

Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, Logan explained his decision to sign 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," he said.

When asked if he prefers to be a heel or face, Logan's co-hosts said that he wants to be liked, which prompted him to say, "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."

A bout between Miz and Paul has not been made official for WWE SummerSlam.

Paul has been officially announced for the July 18 episode of WWE Raw. During the discussion, Logan noted that he has two appearances before WWE SummerSlam.
