Paul Heyman is currently negotiating a new deal with WWE after his contract expired in May … but Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned it shouldn’t keep┬áhim from appearing at SummerSlam.

The Wrestling Observer first reported Heyman’s contract status this week, and now multiple sources tell us the holdup is over both sides trying to settle on the extent of Paul’s outside projects.

Back in March, Brock Lesnar’s advocate signed a distribution deal with Yahoo Sports to produce exclusive content for their site. He also announced this year that he’d be doing a reality show.

Despite the delay, we’re told the two sides are expected to hammer everything out before SummerSlam so that he can accompany Brock Lesnar to the ring for his match against Randy Orton.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope nothing major stops that from happening.
