Jake Paul Challenged To WWE Match By Active Superstar, He's Been Called 'No 1 Heel In The World'

YouTuber Jake Paul may just be about to swap boxing for WWE in a sensational turn of events.

The 24-year-old influencer is already making quite a name for himself in boxing circles, having won all four of his fights so far. MMA star Tyron Woodley and former basketball player Nate Robinson are two men who Paul has recently taken on and beaten. He remains unbeaten and has a 4-0-0 record at present.

Paul's next test is a considerable step up from facing sportspeople from other sports. He faces Tommy Fury next, who is actually a boxer by trade. He is also, of course, Tyson Fury's half-brother. The fight is understandably gathering more and more interest all the time, and is due to take place on 18 December in Florida.

After that fight, though, Paul has the option to take a break from boxing. Former WWE champion Drew McIntyre has complimented Paul for the interest his fights draw and even compared him to the legendary Muhammad Ali, who both have admitted inspired them in the past.

Speaking to talkSPORT recently, McIntyre said about Paul: "Whenever I see him show up at these events and the whole crowd starts booing him, I'm like 'wow, that's pretty cool.'

"He is basically the number one heel in the world, so if he wants to swing by WWE and get Claymore'd in the face, that's just fine with me!" he added - referring of course to his famous Claymore Kick signature move.

Paul will be fully focused on the Fury fight in the meantime, and there's nothing to suggest he would be willing to change rings and make his WWE debut. However, the option is now there - and the opponent now clear. It would certainly attract a lively audience.
