Logan Paul Seriously Impressed Fans In His WrestleMania Debut, Did Eddie Guerrero's Moves
| Last updated
Logan Paul wore an ultra-rare Pokemon card round his neck during his walk to the ring at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas.
The Pikachu Illustrator card has an estimated worth of just under $1 million - $900,000 to be exact.
The PSA-graded Pikachu Illustrator card is a vintage special edition promotional card given out to winners of an early Pokemon contest, meaning Paul might just have been donning the most expensive piece of gear in WWE history.
Interestingly, though, this isn't the first time Paul has worn a pricey Pokemon card round his neck during a sporting event.
He made headlines last year when he was seen strutting to the ring for his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather wearing a super-rare Charizard card on the end of a necklace.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul made his highly-anticipated WWE debut at WrestleMania 38, partnering up with The Miz to take on Rey and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team match.
Paul and The Miz ended up winning the bout, but there was plenty of other talking points which had WWE fans out of their seats.
From the outset, Paul proved he could match it with the very best in the business, not looking out of place against the father and son Mysterio duo.
At one point though, a chorus of boos rang out around Dallas AT&T Stadium as Paul showed the ultimate sign of disrespect to his opponents by copying and imitating their good friend Eddie Guerrero's signature wrestling moves.

The Three Amigos, the Frog Splash, the Latino Heat shoulder shuffle, he did them all!
This didn't sit well with fans, although they could definitely appreciate that Paul was clearly a technically-sound wrestler.
But after getting his hand raised by the referee after the bout, Paul got what was coming to him when his tag team partner The Miz hit him with a Skull Crusher out of nowhere.

Overall, the bout itself made for box office entertainment and WWE die-hards were left impressed with Paul's debut.
One person tweeted: "Logan Paul is a damn good wrestler man."
While another added: "Logan Paul became the new Eddie Guerrero, this is crazy man."
As one concluded: "Logan Paul man, can't believe he did that in his first match."

You hate to admit it, but he looked like a natural in the squared-circle.
And with The Miz turning his back on Paul and hitting him with a cheap shot at the end, we could very well see the social media megastar make a return in the future to exact some sort of revenge.
