YouTube star Logan Paul is returning to the WWE and, this time, for a more permanent role.
The organization announced Thursday that Paul signed a contract earlier this week after making his first appearance at WrestleMania in 2021.
“I think it’s safe to say Logan Paul shocked the world with his abilities as a guest at #WrestleMania … just imagine what he’ll do as a WWE Superstar,” wrestling legend Triple H wrote on Twitter. “Congratulations and welcome!”
Sources told ESPN the deal is a multi-event contract that will last through 2023.
Paul appeared in a tag-team match at WrestleMania 38 in April and was partnered with The Miz to face father-and-son duo Rey and Dominik Mysterio. But, after the fight, Miz turned on Paul, prompting the social media star to call him out during his signing.
“So look, I just signed my WWE contract – it is a big deal but after all, it is my contact so I’m going to make a little addition here,” Paul said before writing “Coming 4 u @ The Miz” on the back of the contract.
The Miz responded on Twitter, seemingly welcoming his former partner.
