Logan Paul is now a WWE superstar.
It has been a busy week for the WWE as they have signed two hot non-wrestler prospects. Yesterday they signed Bellator female fighter Valerie Loureda, and on Thursday, WWE announced Paul has signed a WWE contract.

MMA journalist Ariel Helwani was the first to report that Paul signed a multi-year contract with the company.
Additional details per sources:
Deal includes an undisclosed number of premium live events across 2022 and 2023.
He’ll likely, I’m told, have his first big appearance at SS but could be on TV before that.
He signed his deal yesterday.

There is speculation that Paul will debut at WWE’s upcoming event SummerSlam, which takes place in Nashville, Tenn, on July 30.
Paul is no stranger to WWE as he has appeared at the company’s biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania, twice. In April, he stole the show during the two-day event when he teamed up with The Miz in a tag match against Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. After the match, The Miz turned on Paul, setting up a future collision between the two huge personalities.
No more boxing
It has been a massive couple of years for Paul. He boxed Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match last year, going all eight rounds. Unfortunately, according to Paul, he hasn’t been paid for the boxing match.
There were whispers that Paul and Mike Tyson were going to fight, but nothing ever came of it, and now that the 27-year-old is signed to the WWE, that potential boxing match is scrapped. (Thank goodness).
