Brothers Logan and Jake Paul rose to fame through widely-followed YouTube channels and social media platforms.
But the two brothers expanded their respective individual empires in the sports entertainment world. Jake has become a box office attraction in the pro boxing industry, coming off a monumental victory over Anderson Silva on Oct. 29.
In 2021, Logan started working for WWE, and he too has emerged as a massive draw for the company. The older Paul watched the Kevin Owens-Sami Zayn bout from ringside, with the former emerging victorious via pinfall. After the bout, Paul received a Stunner from the former Universal Champion.
Logan and Jake were both born in the state of Ohio, which is scheduled to launch mobile sports betting on Jan. 1, 2023. There will be several special offers to new customers to take advantage of, including a Caesars Ohio promo code that will give out a $100 in free bets plus entry into a Cleveland Cavaliers’ ticket draw for users who deposit $20.
Through the Caesars sportsbook, customers will be able to place all sorts of different wagers. This includes futures, prop bets and over/under totals. For example, Ohio fans could bet on the Cavaliers winning the 2023 NBA Championship, or the Cleveland Browns or Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl 57 in February.
Paul teamed up with future Hall of Famer The Miz at WrestleMania 38 for a tag team bout against Rey and Dominik Mysterio. Paul dazzled with a phenomenal in-ring performance, and he and The Miz went on to win the bout.
As if competing on the WrestleMania stage wasn’t big enough, Paul also had the chance to headline the Crown Jewel pay-per-view on Nov. 5 with the company’s top star, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Paul and Reigns squared off in a title match at Crown Jewel, which took place inside Mrsool Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Though Paul was never realistically expected to win the match, he received favorable reviews for his grade-A outing in the ring against Reigns.
When all was said and done, Reigns managed to outlast Paul via pinfall in a match that lasted just under 25 minutes. While Reigns got support from The Usos and Solo Sikoa in the bout, Logan got some help from brother Jake, who fought off Reigns’ three allies moments before Reigns won.
Unfortunately, Logan’s surging WWE career was put on hold after Crown Jewel. Following the match, it was reported that he needed surgery to repair a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus, so he’ll be out of action for several months.
Logan will be back in the WWE at some point. He’s already a special draw and main event attraction. Given his early success in the squared circle, could we also see brother Jake make a jump to the WWE?

Considering Jake’s incredible success in the boxing ring and his global following, it’s safe to say that WWE would welcome him with open arms.
The early stages of Logan’s WWE tenure has been a giant success, so why can’t Jake also enjoy a decorated tenure with the company? WWE is always willing to give celebrities a chance if they believe it’ll drive the business. Recent examples here include rapper Bad Bunny, former NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski and Johnny Knoxville.
During an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports several weeks ago, Logan was asked if he believes we’ll see his younger brother in WWE.
“Truthfully, I think it’s inevitable,” Logan said.
Jake was at the Floyd Mayweather-Deji Olatunji boxing match back on Nov. 13. Per Ringside News, Jake made it clear at the event that he wants a tag team match with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.
“We’re gonna have a tag team match,” Jake said. “We’re gonna show up, and me and my brother are coming back for The Usos, okay, I promise you that. Because what I felt in my heart when we lost to them, it wasn’t a vibe. So I wanna come back and avenge that loss for my brother.”
It feels like WWE wouldn’t want to build up a future showdown between the Paul brothers and The Usos if they weren’t actually keen on it. Again, WWE has never shied away in using celebrities outside of the industry for marquee matches.
A Jake and Logan Paul match vs. The Usos would be a main event-worthy match for a marquee pay-per-view like Money in the Bank or SummerSlam.
Nothing is official, but it’s not too early to think that we’re going to eventually see the Paul brothers in the ring together. Jake had an eventful and unforgettable appearance at Crown Jewel, and there’s clearly unfinished business there with The Usos.
