Logan Paul and WWE provided a sneak peek at his in-ring costume, which included boots, trousers, and maybe a mask, in the lead-up to his match against Rey and Dom Mysterio at WrestleMania 38.
Logan Paul will team up with The Miz to face Rey Mysterio and Dom Mysterio at WrestleMania 38, WWE announced on February 22. It will be the first time he has competed in a sanctioned match for the brand.
He had a brief tussle with them on Monday Night Raw on March 14, and his in-ring performance was well-received. This was a dramatic contrast to when he was booed out of the arena after cutting a promotion.
Logan and WWE have been dropping breadcrumbs on social media to create interest for his battle, including a sneak-peek at what he’ll wear, which fits into his theme as ‘The Maverick.’
The imPaulsive podcaster made various appearances of WWE appearances in the run-up to Wrestlemania 38. He was the first to give us a sneak peek. The influencer tweeted a drawing of his attire with the caption, “On April 2, I compete at WrestleMania in front of 100,000 people. This is a rough sketch of my wrestling outfit.”
The sketch shows that his costume will be yellow and black, a color combination he’s previously worn in the WWE. Instead of casual streetwear, it’s made up of wrestling tights and knee-high boots.
On Monday Night Raw shortly after, The Miz unmasked Rey Mysterio and kept the mask for himself. Logan Paul was challenged to wear it. “Logan, this is all yours,” he said. “I dare you to wear it next week on Monday Night Raw.”
Because it will be the final show before WrestleMania 38, there’s a fair chance he’ll wear it at the event as well. After all, it fits nicely with the yellow and black colour scheme and is likely to ruffle some feathers.
WrestleMania begins on April 2 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. If Logan’s bout goes well, there’s a strong possibility we’ll see him again, especially given he’s shown interest in a full-time WWE career.
“I think it’s up to the fans,” he said. “I think it’s up to the fans to see if they agree with me thinking I’m good.” So far, he’s done a decent job of winning them over, but we’ll have to wait and see how things play out.
