On August 29, 2021, a fan tweeted that Jake Paul would be a great signing for WWE. The fan also tagged Jericho and stated that if he trained Jake, he’d be the best heel ever.

Replying to the tweet, Y2J disagreed and declared that Jake Paul would be a better fit for AEW.

Is Jake better for WWE or AEW? We will leave that debate for the fans. While some fans are happy for Jake to be a part of AEW, others are not. There are also some fans who do not want to see either Paul brothers in any wrestling promotion.

But adding Jake Paul to the list might damage the show’s fan following. Even though Jake will bring a huge fan following with him, the authentic wrestling fans might not enjoy watching him.

We are not saying Jake cannot fight. We are just saying that original wrestling fans might not be interested in seeing him in the ring. But nothing is official, so the topic is up for debate.
