Paul and WWE Shared the News on Social Media

Paul visited the World Wrestling Entertainment Headquarters in Stamford, Conn to sign the deal. On Thursday, both Paul and WWE announced the news on their social media handles while sharing pictures of him signing the contract.

In the pictures, Logan can be seen with Stephanie McMohan, the interim CEO of WWE and Triple-H, the executive vice president for Global Talent Strategy & Development of WWE. Stephanie is acting as the CEO of WWE, as her father faces misconduct allegations within the company.

In his stint with WWE, Paul might be featured as one of their ‘baby faces’, i.e. good guys since the most famous babyface of the company, Cody Rhodes is currently out of the ring due to injury. Before signing the contract, Paul shared a number of photos on his twitter handle practicing dives inside the ring, and tagged WWE.

It should be noted that the two rivals formed a team during WrestleMania 38 in April, and defeated the father-son duo of Rey and Dominik Mysterio. But after the match, Paul was betrayed by The Miz who attacked him with a Skull-Crushing Finale. 

As per sources, Paul’s first match, as a part of the contract, will be against The Miz at SummerSlam in late July.
