Logan Paul’s time in WWE has been filled with marquee matches where the YouTuber surprised fans with his abilities in the ring. He reportedly signed a multi-year deal with WWE, but then he hinted that his time in the company was wrapping up. This sparked a brand new conversation.
Logan Paul lost his match against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 39. The Maverick didn’t quite have what it took to shut down the Drip God, but he also earned Rollins’ respect in a big way.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Logan Paul’s WWE deal is likely already signed at this point. It is expected that he will continue with WWE for another stint.
Logan Paul, when talking about his contract expiring after WrestleMania, did say that he expects to sign a new deal and during the week the talk was that he did sign a new deal.
Although Logan Paul’s time in WWE isn’t done, he’s also not giving up his boxing career. While speaking with BT Sport, Paul was very confident about a fight with Nate Diaz, someone he claims is running from him.
“I think he’s running. This guy, I think he’s ducking. We have the sweetest deal for him and he knows the type of numbers I bring in. I’m not a quarter of a million (PPV buys) type of fighter. You’re going to get 750,000, (a) million buys, and I’m an 0-1 YouTuber. Seems like an easy fight on paper.”
“I don’t even care anymore. I thought I had something locked in, but apparently he said the fight was off. Like, why? Why? So he could fight someone else? For what purpose? To get less buys, and maybe an easier fight? I don’t get it. As far as I know, it’s not dead because we had to f*cking offer him more money. It’s like we’re baiting this guy into fighting me. It’s hard for me to get a fight because either you’re not worth my time and energy, or you’re not going to sell pay-per-views. I’ll do it, but I need a dance partner. And I don’t need a tune-up fight, give me the real dogs. Nate Diaz is a dog. I was looking forward to that fight, then I got a call the other day and they said they didn’t want to do it. It was almost done. I don’t know.”
We’ll have to see how this situation turns out for Logan Paul. He could have a long line of Superstars in the back waiting to mix it up with him in a high profile feud. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world.
