YouTube megastar Logan Paul took to Twitter this week to issue a wrestling related challenge to his fellow influencers.
$10,000 to any influencer who can beat me in a wrestling match— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) August 10, 2020
Paul, who has over 22 million subscribers on YouTube has significant previous in sports-entertainment crossovers.
In February 2018 he faced fellow YouTuber KSI in a white collar boxing match that ended in a draw.
In September the following year, their rematch took place as a professional fight in the Staples Center in DAZN. The fight, which ended in a decision win for KSI.
As could be expected, the challenge saw responses from numerous talent within the wrestling world.
