After signing the contract, Paul wasted no time choosing his first opponent in Miz. The couple formed a tag team in WrestleMania 38 back in April and defeated the father and son team of Rey and Dominic Mysterio. After the match, Miz immediately betrayed Paul by hitting him with a crushing finale (Miz’s finishing move). Sources told Helwani that Paul’s first pay-per-view appearance will most likely be at SummerSlam against The Miz in late July.
Most likely, WWE will push Paul to one of their babyfaces (i.e. the good guys), given former AEW wrestler and top WWE babyface Cody Rhodes, came out with lacerated chest injury. Before signing the contract Paul shared photos from training while performing turnbuckle jumps from a wrestling ring to his Twitter account. Paul’s arrogant antics were not as clear-cut as Spray Bad Bunny, so Paul’s training time was justified. We are in Kotaku in your corner come SummerSlam, Miz. Give him hell.
