WWE WrestleMania 40 may not have gone as smoothly as IShowSpeed might have hoped, but his enthusiasm for wrestling remains strong. Despite any challenges or setbacks he faced during the event, the popular streamer definitely made an impact.

At the annual Showcase of the Immortals, IShowSpeed dressed as bottle of PRIME Energy and played crucial role in aiding WWE U.S. Champion Logan Paul during his title defense against Kevin Owens and Randy Orton. Speed’s interference ultimately backfired, leading to him receiving an RKO from Randy Orton.

In the latest episode of IMPAULSIVE, Logan Paul shared insights into the process of bringing popular streamer IShowSpeed into the WWE fold. According to Logan Paul, the pitch to involve Speed in WWE took careful negotiation and convincing.

Logan emphasized that despite Speed’s young age (he is 19 years old), his charismatic and energetic presence makes him an internet sensation, and he brings a lot of viral attention to everything he does.


When I was pitching him (IShowSpeed) to the WWE, it took a little massaging, it took a little finessing for us to convince them that we had this young creator who by the way is still a teenager. The kid’s 19 years old, who’s just an internet phenom. Everything he touches goes crazy viral because he’s got that charismatic, contagious energy. I don’t know.

IShowSpeed also has an interesting idea for WWE event. Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see if he will make his return to WWE television again somewhere down the line.
