YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A famous YouTube creator has come to terms with WWE on a new contract.

Paul was victorious in his first WrestleMania match one year ago, where he teamed with Parma, Ohio native The Miz to defeat Rey & Dominick Mysterio at Night 1 of WrestleMania 38 on April 2, 2022.
In June 2022, it was revealed that Paul had signed an official contract with WWE. He went on to defeat The Miz at SummerSlam 2022 on July 31. On November 5, Paul was injured in a loss to WWE Universal World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns at their Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
