WWE News: Paul Heyman's Contractual Status, Rey Mysterio Injury Update


-- Paul Heyman remains under a “top tier” contract with WWE and after getting removed as Executive Director of Raw, the company’s options were to continue paying him that high figure and use him as a creative consultant or bring him back on TV in an on-camera role, reports the Observer Newsletter. With Roman Reigns pushing for a heel turn, the pieces fell together though it’s unclear if Reigns also suggested pairing up with Heyman or if that was something Vince McMahon went with on his own.

-- Rey Mysterio looks to be sidelined about four to six weeks with his triceps injury, a much better prognosis than what was initially feared which would have been four to six months.
