Paul Heyman Reaches Contractual Agreement with WWE; Scheduled to Appear on Raw Tonight


There were a lot of reports and rumors floating around about the contract status of Paul Heyman of late.  He was not mentioned in connection with Brock Lesnar’s return to Raw tonight.  He was also specifically omitted when Lesnar was drafted to Raw when other managerial types such as Lana and Maryse were shown with Rusev and The Miz respectively.

Today, Wrestling Observer is reporting that Heyman has signed a new deal with the company.  Heyman, who has primarily been associated with Lesnar in storyline since early in Lesnar’s career, started his most recent run in 2012, but that deal expired in May.   Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.  It was said that part of the holdup in getting a deal done was discussion over the outside projects that Heyman is involved in.  Both sides did expect to get a deal done before SummerSlam.

According to Observer, Heyman will be accompanying Lesnar this evening on Raw from Atlanta.
