Update on Paul Heyman's WWE Contract Status

Heyman has been working with Roman Reigns on Smackdown

Paul Heyman's current WWE contract will reportedly expire in the next couple of months but his re-signing is expected to be a 'formality'. 

Heyman's position as a WWE on-screen talent was uncertain last year following Brock Lesnar's departure from the company after WrestleMania 36, but the former Raw executive producer has found a new home since mid-2020, serving as the Special Counsel to the returning Roman Reigns. 

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Heyman's own contract with WWE is set to come to an end in the coming weeks. However, with his position at the top of the show with the Universal Champion, it appears to be just a matter of time before he puts pen-to-paper on a new deal. 

Meltzer said: "I don’t know if he’s re-signed or anything, but it was gonna be up right around now. Maybe not right now but in a month or two I think. I think I remember May, but that could be wrong. 

"But I can’t even imagine him not being signed, he’s with Roman Reigns in the top act, so I just would presume that’s a formality."

Heyman will be with Reigns at WrestleMania 37 as the Tribal Chief defends the Universal Championship against Royal Rumble winner Edge.
