Next week’s SmackDown would also feature the much-awaited premiere of Zayn’s expose of WWE. For weeks, he had been going around with his camera crew, filming some unseen footage of injustice, and now, it is finally time to unleash the demons in WWE’s closet!

Before that, Zayn made an appearance on the Kevin Owens show tonight, so that he could apologize to Owens following last week’s attack. After the apology, Zayn dropped the bombshell regarding Logan Paul.

At the Red Carpet of his conspiracy theory-clad autobiography revelation, Logan Paul would appear as a special guest. However, we still don’t know what his role will be.

Logan Paul is a YouTube sensation with millions of followers. But more notably, Paul has also worked with conspiracy theories in his videos. In fact, Zayn and he were talking on Twitter about the injustices borne by the former El Generico!

He even promised Zayn he will check the movie out and green-lit the initial footage.

WWE using mainstream stars to gain traction

The inclusion of mainstream stars is a well-known tactic that is often deployed by WWE to tap previously unreached markets. Grammy winner Bad Bunny and now YouTube sensation Logan are bound to bring in a new and young audience to WWE.

Notably, Logan Paul is no stranger to the world of combat sports, having competed in celebrity boxing matches. He had faced British YouTuber KSI twice. While the first one was a draw, the second saw KSI pick up the win.

Although we don’t know what Logan will do next week, it would be intriguing to see what unfolds on stage.

Apart from Logan Paul, Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens scheduled to take place at WrestleMania 37

Following the news, Kevin Owens was excited (kind of). But he focused solely on his equation with Sami Zayn as the latter attacked him out of nowhere last week.

“The only reason” Owens did not attack Zayn immediately on the KO Show was because he wanted an explanation. Even though Zayn revealed he was sorry for the attack, Owens was having none of it and challenged his friend to a match at WrestleMania.

After Zayn accepted the match, Owens delivered a stunner to him to kick-off the road to WrestleMania. Let us know your thoughts on the revelations tonight in the comments below.
