Logan Paul is officially signed with WWE—and this time it's not a one-off.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer-turned-wrestler announced his signing with the company Thursday, posing for pictures with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

Mike Coppinger of ESPN reported the deal is a "multi-event" contract that will last into 2023. That will include multiple premium live events, though the exact number is not known.

The 27-year-old made his WWE in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38, teaming with The Miz to defeat Rey and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team match. The Miz turned on Paul after the match, giving him a Skull Crushing Finale, setting up a storyline that continued Monday on Raw.

While The Miz maintained he and Paul would compete for tag team gold, the overwhelming likelihood is they will compete in a one-on-one match at SummerSlam. Paul wasn't happy with The Miz during his contract signing.

Along with his brother, Jake, Logan Paul most recently began dabbling in the boxing world. His most recent bout was an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last June.

The social media star and his brother have received heavy criticism for past actions. Logan received such criticism in 2017 and 2018 after posting a video of a man who hung himself at a so-called "suicide forest" at Mount Fuji in Japan. He has also made insensitive comments about the LGBTQ+ community and had his YouTube channel demonetized for a series of controversies.
