Paul Heyman is one of the most entertaining characters in the WWE today and is regarded as one of the best talkers in the industry ever.

When the Advocate of the Beast Incarnate's contract ran down and there was no sign of a new deal being reached, the possibility of Heyman no longer speaking for the company's biggest box office draw become a very real prospect.

However, Dave Meltzer confirmed on his F4WOnline.com website that Paul Heyman has agreed to a new contract with WWE that begun on Monday’s episode of Monday Night Raw, where he will appeared alongside a returning Brock Lesnar.

It had been reported that Heyman had grown increasingly frustrated with his diminished role in WWE over the last several months because he was being paid per appearance.

With him being used so infrequently, he was allegedly threatening not to re-sign unless they found more things for him to do. While the mastermind behind ECW was always expected to re-sign before SummerSlam, his contract did in fact lapse last month.

One has to wonder why the WWE wouldn't put someone like Heyman to work if they had him at their disposal. Yes, he is excellent alongside Lesnar and a perfect fit, but given the Beast's part-time schedule in WWE, that leaves Heyman twiddling his thumbs for roughly nine months of the year.

There is a long-running history between Vince McMahon and Paul Heyman. Firstly, the New York-native joined the company in 2001 as a commentator and went on to write SmackDown during the first brand extension.

After that SmackDown became wildly successful and actually rivaled the flagship show, Raw, Heyman than oversaw the revival of ECW. However after clashing with Stephanie McMahon during his time on SmackDown and then Vince over the new incarnation of ECW, Heyman had to go.

He would return with Lesnar and then CM Punk six years later to reassume his role as one of the most influential men in the industry. However, given failed runs backing Cesaro, Ryback an Curtis Axel in that time, it appears as though the company was hesitant to invest too much in Heyman.

Details of his new deal are yet to emerge, but Heyman can be enjoyed for a little while longer at least.
