Logan Paul: KSI touching message after former rival signs with WWE

KSI congratulates Logan Paul on his move to WWE

Logan Paul is now a WWE Superstar, with it being announced yesterday that he’s signed a deal with the wrestling giant.

Logan impressed fans at WrestleMania with his performance, and clearly made an impression on WWE officials too, who have now brought him in full-time.

His deal is set to see him wrestle multiple times each year, which you can read more about by clicking here.

Fans have now given their thoughts on Logan signing after the announcement sent shock waves around the wrestling world yesterday.

While some aren’t the biggest fans of Logan and don’t really care to see him in WWE, others appreciate how big of a signing this is for WWE, given Logan’s popularity and recognisability.

KSI, who had a pretty intense rivalry with Logan Paul resulting in a boxing match between the two, has now weighed in with his thoughts.

KSI is now business partners with Logan, with the pair launching their Prime drink last year, and the YouTuber-turned rapper has shown his support following this big news.

Taking to Instagram, as you can see below, KSI said that he’d been a fan of WWE for several years, so said it was really cool to see Logan get the chance to become a WWE Superstar.

Funnily enough, back in 2019, KSI expressed an interest in doing some work with WWE and said he’d be open to wrestling for the promotion.

So now that his business partner is in WWE, perhaps KSI has a path into working for the company, potentially alongside Logan.

With his huge following (23m YouTube subscribers), it’s clear to see why WWE wanted to bring Logan into the company full-time.

Amongst the younger portion of fans, that WWE wants to attract, Logan is immensely recognisable, so the hope is fans of his will become wrestling fans as they watch what he’s up to in wrestling.

Logan is expected to be at SummerSlam in Nashville on July 30, wrestling in what will likely be his first-ever singles match in WWE.

The 27-year-old could be appearing on WWE TV sooner than that though, even potentially as early as Saturday night’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, or even Monday Night Raw next week.

You can watch Money in the Bank tomorrow night from Las Vegas over in the US on Peacock and in the UK on the WWE Network.
