YouTuber turned wrestler Logan Paul has received widespread support from WWE fans after his in-ring performance against Rey and Dom Mysterio.
Yesterday, March 14, Paul - aka 'The Maverick' - made moves in winning the support of World Wrestling Entertainment fans ahead of the upcoming WrestleMania 38 fight in Arlington, Texas.
Taking to the ring to film a build-up segment for the main event, Paul alongside partner Michael Gregory Mizanin - 'The Miz' - took on the legendary father and son duo.

As the Mysterios were ramping up to finish Logan off with one of their iconic moves, known as 619, The Miz stepped back in and helped Logan get out of the two versus one situation, as per Dexerto.
It's the longest in-ring performance Logan has ever done in the WWE, and the first time he is stepping into the ring at WrestleMania for an official match.
It also marked a change in the tide of opinions surrounding the YouTuber.
In summer 2021, Paul was booed out of the stadium while at the WWE's Monday Night Raw.

Ryan Satin, a WWE analyst, even reflected: 'These boos are so loud for Logan Paul that I legit can't hear what is being said'.
Paul eventually went backstage after a few minutes in front of the cameras while the Miz and John Morrison continued with the episode.
However, Paul's most recent appearance has been applauded by WWE fans, with one calling his wrestling 'really decent'.
Yo Logan is actually pretty decent. Such a pity he wasn't 619'd though.— Grizz (@Boots__electric) March 15, 2022
Another wrote: 'Ngl why is Logan actually good at this.'
Noting how impressed they were by Logan's response to his competitors, a third stated: 'You're pretty decent at this not gonna lie. Being in the ring with Rey Mysterio as well is awesome'.

Paul - primarily known as a boxer - has taken on fellow YouTuber KSI and pro Floyd Mayweather. Paul drew with KSI in the original 2018 match, but was defeated in the pair's rematch the following year.
In June 2021, Paul and Mayweather's fight resulted in no winner, but the duo both lasted an impressive full eight rounds. The pair both took home a ridiculous amount of money as a result of the match.
American-Canadian pro wrestler and WWE legend Brock Lesnar - known as 'Glory to The Conqueror', 'The Beast Incarnate' and 'The Anomaly' - also praised Paul and his brother, who has similarly taken on a career in the ring.
He said: 'They worked at something. They built their name up. They thought outside the box.'
When questioned about the future of the Paul brothers careers he stated: 'Can they become professional wrestlers? Maybe, if they put as much ambition into that.'
The WrestleMania 38 fight between Paul, The Miz, and the Mysterios is set to go ahead on April 2.
