Paul posed alongside his WWE contract alongside interim WWE CEO and Chairwoman, Stephanie McMahon, as well as former WWE Superstar, Triple H (real name Paul Levesque).
Paul, who was described as a “YouTube megastar” by the organization, currently has over 23 million followers on his official Instagram, and hosts his own podcast, Impaulsive – on his YouTube channel, which boasts upwards of 23 million subscribers to boot.
Competing in amateur, professional, and exhibition boxing matches, Paul suffered a professional defeat in a rematch against fellow YouTuber turned rap star, KSI, before sharing the squared circle with former multiple-time and weight world champion, Floyd Mayweather in August of last year in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Set to continue his excursion into professional wrestling, Paul has been pictured within the entourage of his younger sibling, the aforenoted, Jake Paul during and after the outspoken boxer’s stunning December knockout victory over Tyron Woodley – along with a prior decision win over the former UFC welterweight champion, and a first round KO of Ben Askren.
