Logan Paul to be in Sami Zayn’s corner versus Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 37?

The 25-year-old YouTuber will make his WWE debut this coming Friday night on SmackDown. Logan will attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Sami Zayn’s documentary trailer. But his appearance this Friday won’t be a one-off. As reports suggest, this would lead to a WrestleMania appearance.

Ringside News recently reported that WWE has booked Logan Paul for WrestleMania 37. It is believed the company wants to capitalize on the massive following of the famous YouTuber to draw attention to the WWE Network’s move to Peacock.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio also noted that WWE wants to have celebrity star power on both nights of WrestleMania. While they already set Bad Bunny for a match against The Miz on Night 1, Logan Paul will be the major celebrity attraction on Night 2. But unlike Bad Bunny, he won’t wrestle.

Talking about Logan Paul’s WrestleMania status, Meltzer said, “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.” H/t WrestlingNewsCo

How did Sami Zayn connect with ‘The Maverick?’

Sami Zayn first name-dropped ‘The Maverick‘ more than a couple of weeks ago on SmackDown. The two also had a Twitter exchange, where Paul believed Zayn’s wild accusations against WWE.

The ‘Liberator’ tried to pursue his former best friend Kevin Owens to support him like Logan, but Kevin found nothing fishy.

While there is no update on what he could do at the ‘Show of Shows,’ we believe he will have some physical involvement in the match. After all, when else will he make use of his boxing prowess?

Either way, expect this week’s SmackDown to be an exciting joyride as we gear up for the ‘Showcase of the Immortals!’ Are you excited to have Logan Paul in WWE? Let us know in the comments below!
