Backstage News On Brock Lesnar’s Involvement In Paul Heyman’s WWE Contract Talks, What Heyman Wanted

As noted, Paul Heyman agreed on a new WWE contract before returning to RAW this past Monday night with Brock Lesnar. While Heyman’s contract expired there had been a general feeling that he would be back in time for SummerSlam but there were some higher-ups who believed Heyman wasn’t coming back.

Heyman was reportedly pushing for a raise that was beyond what WWE was willing to pay him. According to PWInsider, Heyman tried to talk himself into a deal that would’ve been worth more than he’s making now. WWE played hardball and said they would not go in that direction. The deal expired but the two sides never stopped talking.

There has also been unhappiness in the company about some of Heyman’s outside projects, which didn’t help the contract talks.

What ultimately changed Heyman’s contract status was Brock Lesnar’s return. Lesnar reportedly went to bat and said he wanted Heyman there with him, make it happen.

No word yet on if Heyman received the terms he wanted.
