The first footage of Logan Paul training for his in ring WWE debut has been released, as the YouTuber gets ready for WrestleMania 38 this weekend.
Paul has millions of followers and fans, and managed to use that to earn himself a lucrative gig as the first really big YouTuber turned boxer.
The social media star, who fought Floyd Mayweather last year, made his first appearance on WWE last year and was part of WrestleMania, being by Sami Zayn's side for his match with Kevin Owens.
This year though, Paul is going to be making an actual in-ring debut, as he joins forces with The Miz to take on Rey Mysterio and Dominic Mysterio in a tag team match.
Now WWE have shown the footage of the social media star training with his tag team partner, and he's promised he will be coming off the top rope on Saturday night.

Shane Helms, well known to fans of WWE as Hurricane Helms, has also been training the 26-year-old American and has been very impressed with how he's doing.
"Training Logan Paul has been one of the easiest celebrity trainings I've ever done," Helms, who now works at the WWE's Performance Centre, said.
"He's a natural athlete, he's got natural charisma, a natural personality.
"It's just a matter of feeding him a little bit of information and he processes it. It's been super easy."
WrestleMania was built off the popularity of the celebrities that WWE brought in, even way back at the first 'show of the immortals' back in 1985.
That show was headlined by Mr T, who was famous for his roles in Rocky III and the A Team by then, and Cyndi Lauper, Muhammad Ali and Liberace all featured throughout the show.
This year is no different, and Paul isn't the only celebrity, with Jackass star Johnny Knoxville and former NFL star Pat McAfee also involved in matches.
As well as all that, Stone Cold Steve Austin is set to appear, and could actually be having his first match in WWE since 2003.
