In June 2019, Vince McMahon made Paul Heyman an instrumental part of WWE by giving him the role of executive director of Raw. During that time, he gave several talent opportunities such as Andrade, Zelina Vega, Aleister Black, Murphy, Humberto Carrillo, Akam, and Rezar. Vince wasn’t overly impressed with this and replaced him with Bruce Prichard one year later.
Despite this, Heyman remained on as a talent and is now associated with Roman Reigns in a key role on SmackDown. However, his talent contact is set to expire in May, and the former ECW boss was asked if he intends to stay with WWE during a recent interview with Sports Media with Richard Deitsch.
It’s hard to imagine WWE letting Heyman leave as he is too valuable in his role with Reigns. Plus, when Brock Lesnar inevitably returns to WWE, a match will be booked between him and Reigns, with Heyman being instrumental in the angle. While some fans may think AEW signing Heyman in a creative role would be a masterstroke, the belief is Tony Khan is happy with his current creative process. Hence, if Heyman wants to remain in the wrestling industry on big money, it appears WWE is his best option.
