If you’re a Paul Heyman fan, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about with his WWE status.
Heyman was not mentioned at the WWE Draft when Brock Lesnar was drafted to Raw and superstars with managers were allowed to be aligned together. The reason being was because Heyman’s contract was expired and he hadn’t been signed to a new deal, but is expected to sign a new deal before SummerSlam.
The Wrestling Observer first reported Heyman’s contract status this week, and now multiple sources tell us the holdup is over both sides trying to settle on the extent of Paul’s outside projects.
Back in March, Brock Lesnar’s advocate signed a distribution deal with Yahoo Sports to produce exclusive content for their site. He also announced this year that he’d be doing a reality show.
Despite the delay, we’re told the two sides are expected to hammer everything out before SummerSlam so that he can accompany Brock Lesnar to the ring for his match against Randy Orton.
Paul Heyman’s last contract expired in May.
