Social media sensation Logan Paul has taken a big vault. The 27-year-old hits big as WWE signs the Youtuber as their latest inclusion to their roster. Even though he heavily invested in his YouTube career, throughout his childhood Paul had wrestled and has also immersed himself in pro wrestling in recent years. Earlier, he showed up at Wrestlemania and WWE Smackdown as a cameo fighter and has now signed a multi-event deal with WWE.
The s*** is so hard: Logan Paul admits WWE is no piece of cake
Las month, Logan Paul shared this glad news on social media with his fans as he posed with the legendary pro wrestler Triple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon, the interim CEO of the organization. The 27-year-old also posted a couple of photos in the snap series with the officials and then by adding a flavor of excitement with his third one, posing with a piece of paper that read, “Coming 4 U @Miz.”
In the past few months, Paul has acquired the trait of being a ruffian and TMZ Sports had reached out to him about any misbeliefs regarding the pro wrestling top dog promotion, and the superstar made it clear that the ring is no walk in the park.
“Yeah dog, the s*** is hard!!” said Logan, “The s*** is so hard! I come from the non-WWE Universe. So, I know what people say about it, I know what people think about it before I entered. Like, I came from that place. And, now that I’m in it, my jaw has dropped.”
“It is such a difficult discipline that your body is simply not used to unless you do it for years,” he added.
Logan also added that the feats his fellow grapplers have achieved have left him spellbound while hinting that he has some signature moves up his sleeves as well, which he wants to execute in the squared circle. However, he did insist that pro wrestling is more than just physical agility- and that is to have the showman mindset to go along.
“You can’t just be a performer, physically,” Logan went on, “You have to be a showman. You have to go out there and get people excited with your voice, and then show up on the day and perform physically, and fight someone. It’s difficult.”
The WWE SummerSlam will take place at 5 PM PT this Saturday at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Tune in to see Logan Paul using all of his skills against The Miz.
