Paul Heyman is one of the best things going in WWE. Decades of experience as a manager, promoter, booker, and creative mind have given Paul an enormous amount of experience. It shows every time Heyman cuts a promo.
It was reported last year that Paul Heyman’s WWE contract would be expiring soon. There was not much news about a new deal after that. Paul is still working for the company, so it stands to reason that he must have already re-signed.
In a recent interview with the Sports Media podcast, Heyman confirmed that he signed a long-term deal with WWE in 2021. Paul’s contract coming up was public knowledge. Heyman decided to keep things quiet because he doesn’t want his business affairs out in the public.
“It was public knowledge that my contract came up last year and I kept it very close to the vest because I’m not one of these people that, A, want to negotiate in public and B, I’m reading an awful lot lately about who signed and for how long and how much, and I never want that to be me.
This much, I will say, I re-signed with WWE last year. It was a long-term agreement. They created a situation where I would have been a fool not to take them up on their offer. I’m locked in for awhile. This has been the case for a long time for me because I do outside projects because I like to multi-task and I’m very ADD and I can’t concentrate on one thing ever in my life.
I have carve-outs to allow me to do other projects, which is also to WWE’s benefit because I’m locked in to WWE as well. I’m always gonna be, ‘That WWE guy is doing this outside project.’ I would never do anything that would betray my deal with WWE because they went out of their way to ensure I was here, I’m happy, I’m locked in, and we’re mutually satisfied with each other’s contributions.”
Paul Heyman will be there to amuse and infuriate the WWE Universe for years to come. Heyman has done great work during the Roman Reigns – Brock Lesnar feud. It will be interesting to see what he has in store for fans next.
