Paul Heyman will be staying in WWE for a long time to come.
Heyman has been in the middle of the main event scene alongside WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns since the “Tribal Chief” made his return in August 2020 where he has been on a dominant run.
Heyman has been working with Reigns both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. While speaking to Richard Deitsch on the Sports Media podcast, Heyman revealed that he signed a long-term deal with WWE last year.
“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 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 a while. I also…this has been the case for a long time for me because I do outside projects just 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 into WWE as well. I’m always gonna be, ‘oh 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 that I was here. I’m happy, I’m locked in, and we’re mutually satisfied with each other’s contributions.”
Heyman will be at ringside for the showdown between Reigns and WWE Champion in a winner take all title unification bout on the second night of WrestleMania 38 this Sunday. You can listen to the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
