Paul Heyman Reaches Deal With WWE

Paul Heyman

Paul Heyman is scheduled to return to WWE tonight on Raw in his role as the advisor to Brock Lesnar.

Heyman, who has been associated in storyline with Lesnar since very early in his career, has been Lesnar’s mouthpiece during Lesnar’s most recent run, which started in 2012.

Heyman’s contract with WWE expired a few months back, which is why his name had not been mentioned nor graphics of him shown in the promotion of Lesnar’s return tonight.

His name was specifically missing two weeks ago during the Draft when manager types like Maryse and Lana were listed with The Miz and Rusev, while Heyman was not listed with Lesnar. It had been expected all along that a deal would likely be made by SummerSlam.

WWE sources have confirmed to Dave Meltzer of that Heyman has reached a deal with the company that will start tonight, continuing in his role.
