WWE Spoilers: How Long Will Paul Heyman Be With the WWE?

After Paul Heyman’s shocking re-emergence on last night’s RAW as the “legal representation” for Brock Lesnar, PWInsider.com is reporting that Heyman’s appearance was not a one-off appearance as the mastermind behind the original ECW is scheduled to appear periodically for the WWE through August. With Brock Lesnar only scheduled for a set number of appearances on his one-year contract (which, despite the on-air angle, Lesnar is still under contract), bringing Heyman in is the WWE’s way of keeping the Lesnar angle going while not squandering the few appearances that Brock has agreed to make for the company.

As it stands, Paul Heyman is slated to continue appearing as the “legal representation” for Brock Lesnar for the next several months, including Brock’s match against Triple H at SummerSlam. However, Heyman’s appearance with the company is not expected to last any longer than August.

Heyman agreed to return to WWE television so that he can do something new on a limited basis, get his name back out there in the wrestling business, work with some people he cares about, and, of course, to make some money. Heyman’s return to television was reportedly put together within the last week and was not a part of the original plan with Lesnar.

Heyman’s re-emergence on last night’s RAW was the first WWE television appearance Heyman has made in six years. Heyman had a major backstage fallout with Vince McMahon back in 2006 after the infamous disaster that was the ECW December to Dismember pay-per-view. Heyman and Vince disagreed on several ideas for the event and Heyman turned down an offer from Stephanie McMahon to go back to being a writer in WWE’s developmental territory before Heyman quietly left the company.
