So far, Logan Paul has had an extremely animated and varied career. He initially became famous on YouTube and Vine, plus he once famously stepped in the ring to fight former pro boxer Floyd Mayweather. It looks as though his move into the wrestling ring will be another seamless transition, and even though it’s early days, many people believe that he can easily become a global star in the not too distant future.
Who is Logan Paul?
Logan Paul was born in Westlake, Ohio, in the United States, in April 1995. The 27-year-old rose to fame as a social media personality on several major platforms, such as Vine and YouTube, and he quickly became one of the world’s most famous podcasters. He gained a huge following of millions of subscribers and became what is known as an influencer.
He has dabbled in acting, and he recently entered the world of men’s professional wrestling, signing a multi-year contract with WWE and performing in their Raw brand. Some of you may also know his younger brother, Jake Paul, 25, who is also an American social media personality and professional boxer. Many people in the wrestling industry are currently predicting that Logan Paul will become the sport’s next global phenomenon.
He famously fought KSI in an amateur boxing match, which ended in a draw, and then went on to fight him again. The rematch was now a professional bout, which Paul ended up losing by split decision. He was also known for a time as the world’s highest-paid loser – a light-hearted term which he often joked about himself. Logan Paul was recently cast as a babyface (good guy) on WWE TV, and he looks set to fight some of the biggest names in the sport.
