Let’s take a closer look at the reasons WWE decided to pair Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman, and more!
# 5 Reason WWE Transferred Former RAW Creative Director Paul Heyman To SmackDown
Paul Heyman was taken out of the Monday Night RAW creation a few months ago. Heyman has been replaced by Bruce Prichard. However, Heyman still has an on-screen talent contract with WWE. With Brock Lesnar no longer there, WWE was not using Heyman at all who was just inactive and still making a lot of money.
According to Dave Meltzer of WON, Heyman was linked with Reigns so that WWE could use him since he was already under contract.
“His contract as an interpreter, he hasn’t done anything since Lesnar left and it’s been months now and he’s making a lot of money so I think you want to justify that by making him work and being with Reigns.” , he’s paid like a high level guy so he should be in a high level program and it’s not going to get bigger than Reigns. Reigns will be the biggest heel of the promotion. “
With WWE choosing to pair Heyman with Reigns out of fear that his contract might not be used, this leads us to believe that beast personified Brock Lesnar isn’t coming back anytime soon.
