Logan Paul’s appearance on this Friday’s episode of SmackDown will be an angle that will pay off at WrestleMania.
Ringside News first reported on Saturday that Paul is booked for Mania. He has a massive following and WWE is looking for ways to get eyeballs on the product now that their WWE Network content is on Peacock.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the idea is to have a celebrity on different nights. Meltzer said the following while talking about the Mania card: “Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on Sunday. In that one, Logan Paul is gonna be involved in the match. I don’t know if he’s a referee or what but he’s definitely involved. The idea is Bad Bunny on Saturday and Logan Paul on Sunday as your big celebrities.”
Paul and Sami Zayn have been going back and forth on Twitter and, per the WWE storyline, Paul seems to agree that Zayn is the victim of a corporate conspiracy. Paul will be at a red carpet premiere on SmackDown for the debut of the trailer for Zayn’s documentary.
