Speaking to Richard Deitsch on the Sports Media podcast, Heyman revealed that he signed a long-term deal with WWE in 2021.

"It was public knowledge that my contract came up last year and I kept it very close to the vest because I'm not one of these people that, A, want to negotiate in public and B, I'm reading an awful lot lately about who signed and for how long and how much, and I never want that to be me. This much, I will say, I re-signed with WWE last year. It was a long-term agreement. They created a situation where I would have been a fool not to take them up on their offer. I'm locked in for awhile. This has been the case for a long time for me because I do outside projects because I like to multi-task and I'm very ADD and I can't concentrate on one thing ever in my life. I have carve-outs to allow me to do other projects, which is also to WWE's benefit because I'm locked in to WWE as well. I'm always gonna be, 'that WWE guy is doing this outside project.' I would never do anything that would betray my deal with WWE because they went out of their way to ensure I was here, I'm happy, I'm locked in, and we're mutually satisfied with each other's contributions," he said.

Heyman said that he feels like he's auditioning for next week, every week he steps onto the stage, reiterating that if he's not the best man for the job, then he should be replaced. He also noted that he wouldn't want to work anywhere else but WWE.
