Logan Paul: WWE signs Logan Paul contract for Summerslam

After signing a contract with WWE, Logan Paul, a Youtuber is ready to rekindle his feuding with The Miz.

When he made his ring debut at Wrestlemania 38, in April, the social media star was part of a tag team.

Fans watched as Logan was beaten by The Miz, who floored him with his Skull-Crushing Finale finisher.

Summerslam will be the venue for the rivals to meet at the end the month.

Logan shared the news with his 23.2million Instagram followers by posting a photo of himself next to Stephanie McMahon, and Paul "Triple H", Levesque, WWE bosses.

The 27-year old says in a video message that he recorded at the company's headquarters: "The Miz has died to me, he was my enemy, and this contract was signed so I could beat him at Summerslam."

Logan was congratulated by a former rival.

YouTuber KSI - who was twice challenged by him in the boxing ring – replied to him on Instagram: "Been following WWF/WWE since so many years and to see this is legit unbelievable. Congrats."

However, not everyone was so complimentary.

Logan was mocked by The Miz in a ring appearance, and with a series of tweets following the announcement.

Logan and Jake Paul, the brothers of Logan, have had previous high-profile boxing matches against established fighters and influencers.

Logan fought Floyd Mayweather, the undefeated world champion. He claimed he earned a staggering $50m (PS35m), from the eight-round exhibition bout.

Jake will face Tommy Fury, a former Love-Islander from Love Island, at Madison Square Garden on August 6, but there are questions about the fight after Fury was denied entry to the USA.
