Now, his recent victorious bout against Ricochet is set to elevate him to star status in the company. After winning his match in Detroit, the 28-year-old flew to support his brother Jake Paul who was fighting against Nate Diaz in Dallas. However, many fans couldn’t stop talking about Logan Paul’s black eye after his WWE victory.
