British YouTube star KSI has expressed an interest in wrestling for WWE or AEW


The boxing world was taken over by two YouTube entertainers last month, and one of them now wants to conquer another sport.

Thousands packed into the Staples Center on November 9, and millions more around the world watched at home as Logan Paul and KSI did battle once again inside a boxing ring.

The two men competed for the first time as amateurs in August 2018, and a draw meant that a rematch needed to happen - but there were huge changes.

Not only was Eddie Hearn promoting the rematch, but the headguards were gone and both men turned professional for the grudge encounter.

In a controversial affair in which Paul was deducted two points for an illegal punch, KSI - real name Olajide Olatunji - walked away victorious by split decision.

The presence of both KSI and Paul cannot be underestimated as their online followings bring huge figures to the table, and it looks like there is a place for certain entertainers in the fighting world.

Whilst Paul talked about wanting to fight CM Punk inside an MMA cage before the rematch with KSI, the Brit looks like he's set his sights on another sport - wrestling.

Speaking to AllHipHop, KSI has expressed a serious interest in the world of sports entertainment, and he's open to working with any brand.

Now the entertainer and boxer wants to step into the world of wrestling

"I like doing that type of stuff. Of course, I’m always open to doing WWE, AEW, or whatever organisation there is. I’ve been a fan for years," said KSI.

"Man, that’s my childhood. I used to watch Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Sting, Mick Foley/Mankind, The Undertaker, all these guys, Triple H.

"I’m a fan, so it would be a dream come true to fight in the WWE. It’d be a bit too mad for me. I think at that point I’d probably need to check into a hospital just to check that I’m sane."

If WWE see what kind of buzz his boxing match with Paul created, there's a good chance they might want to do business with the British entertainer.

For now it remains a dream, but it could become a reality.
