WME Gets In Logan Paul’s Corner, Signs Him For Representation
Logan Paul, the YouTube personality and podcaster who has also dabbled in boxing most recently fighting former world champion Floyd Mayweather to a draw in a pay-per-view exhibition match, has signed with WME.

YouTube and Paul have had a contentious partnership; the platform suspended ads on Paul’s channel at least twice, both in 2018, once for posting video from a trip to Japan’s Aokigahara forest in which he encountered a suicide victim, and another for posting a video of himself tasing a dead rat.
