Paul Heyman re-signs with WWE

Paul Heyman

Not only is WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar staying around, but his advocate and mouthpiece Paul Heyman will also be sticking around the company as well.

PW Insider first reported the news and our Dave Meltzer confirmed it. Meltzer notes that Heyman's deal is short-term.

With Lesnar's immediate future thought to be in the UFC and with Heyman set to begin developing some TV projects, there was some questions as to his future with the company. However, earlier Monday, WWE announced that Lesnar re-signed with the company and will be on the company's big upcoming Saudi Arabia show, The Greatest Royal Rumble. However, no financial terms or length of the deal were disclosed there either.

After leaving the company in 2006, the 52-year-old Heyman returned to the company in April 2012 with Lesnar, eventually managing CM Punk for a long and memorable WWE title run.
