Paul caused a social media furor in January after he posted video of himself in a forest near Mount Fuji in Japan near what appeared to be a body hanging from a tree. YouTube suspended the 22-year-old at the time for violating its policies. But Paul returned, and has posted a video of himself using a Taser on dead rats. That spurred YouTube to temporarily suspend all ads from Paul’s channel after what it called a pattern of behavior unsuitable for advertisers. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File)

WWE Superstar Sami Zayn announced on Friday Night SmackDown that American YouTuber and professional boxer Logan Paul will be his guest of honor at the red carpet premiere of his documentary, which purports to show a conspiracy lodged against him by WWE.


"He's [@LoganPaul] is gonna be here next week!" - @SamiZayn to @FightOwensFight #SmackDown https://t.co/cH1pkHCcFp

Zayn and Paul interacted on Twitter earlier this week, with Paul appearing to agree with the two-time intercontinental champion's take:

Zayn made the Paul announcement during "The KO Show," hosted by WWE Superstar Kevin Owens. By the time the segment was over, Zayn and Owens agreed to a match at WrestleMania, which is taking place on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11 in Tampa, Florida.


It's a "yes!" @SamiZayn and @FightOwensFight are set to collide at #WrestleMania! #SmackDown https://t.co/dMbon0oIeL

As for the red carpet premiere, that's set to occur on the April 2 edition of SmackDown.
