Paul Heyman recently agreed on a new contract with the WWE after it was revealed his deal had expired, and it’s why he wasn’t seen alongside Brock Lesnar’s graphics on the WWE draft.

However, with this new deal brings new rumours and once Heyman accompanies Lesnar to the ring at SummerSlam - after The Beast Incarnate played a pivotal role in bringing Heyman back to the company - it’s expected that Lesnar will be taking time off.


He’s slated to return for the Royal Rumble where he could challenge the WWE Universal Champion, but until then, Heyman needs something to do.

Once more, DailyWrestlingNews are reporting that one or two superstars could be brought in to become the next ‘Paul Heyman Guys’.

They reported last month that discussions had taken place, but with Heyman’s new deal in place, it looks likely that they’ll plan on using him a lot more on television, especially with the brand extension in full effect.

Although it’s not guaranteed that new Heyman guys will be introduced, there have been reports suggesting there are two stars that Heyman wants to work with and has pitched ideas to officials.

The first of those names is current NXT Champion, Samoa Joe. The two are said to have a good relationship, and it would be a fantastic way to introduce the monster that is Joe to the main roster.


The second of those names is Joe’s challenger at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II, Shinsuke Nakamura.

This would be more of the mouthpiece role, similar to what he does for Lesnar. Again, if the rumours do come to fruition then it’ll be highly beneficial for the King of Strong Style as his English isn’t the best, and Heyman could help him reach new heights on the main roster.

Heyman will still work with Lesnar regardless of any other plans, which suggests he could be appearing on both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live to keep them away from Lesnar.

The rumours will continue to circulate, and it’s clear that the WWE Universe will want to see more Heyman guys, ones that are guaranteed to succeed.

Should the WWE allow Paul Heyman to work with Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura? Have your say in the comments section below.
