Jake's appearance was hinted in a recent WWE investors call and now looks set to play a part at Mrsool Park.

The 25-year-old was a guest on the Wrestlemania 38 pre-show and looked like a natural on the microphone.

Speaking ahead of his brother's huge bout, Paul told Sports Illustrated: "It's crazy, so crazy Logan has this match. I'm so proud of him. It's surreal he has this opportunity, and it's serendipitous that his event and my event are happening on back-to-back weekends. We're taking over the world. We're the next Kardashians."

Paul made his WWE in-ring debut at Wrestlemania 38 when he teamed with The Miz against Rey and Dominick Mysterio, before returning with a stunning win and performance at Summerslam after the A-Lister turned on him.
