What is Paul Heyman's Net Worth?

Paul Heyman is an American businessman, professional wrestling manager, former promoter, photographer, and executive who has a net worth of $10 million. Paul Heyman is currently signed with WWE and appears on SmackDown as the special counsel for Roman Reigns. He has served as manager for a record six world champions: The Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, and Roman Reigns.

Early Life

Paul Heyman was born on September 11, 1965, in The Bronx, New York City, to Sulamita, a Holocaust survivor, and Richard, a personal injury attorney and World War II veteran. By the age of 11, Paul was running a mail order business selling celebrity and sports memorabilia from home. He then began working as a photojournalist, charming his way backstage at Madison Square Garden, and other sports venues, and then selling the photos to various publications and marketers. After graduating from Westchester Community College, he worked at a radio station, and then shifted his focus back to photography, becoming a photographer and writer for Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

Wrestling Career

Paul Heyman began managing wrestlers in the late 80s, starting out on the independent circuit in the Northeast and Florida, and then moving to the Deep South. He managed for the Continental Wrestling Federation, and then for World Championship Wrestling throughout the 80s and 90s. From there, he moved to Eastern Championship Wrestling, which later became known as Extreme Championship Wrestling. After ECW folded, he became a broadcaster/commentator for WCW, eventually moving back into management, and re-launching the ECW brand.

Paul Heyman first appeared on an episode of Raw in May 2012 as Brock Lesnar's legal advisor. He'd also go on to manage The Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, CM Punk, and Roman Reigns. It was in August 2020 on an episode of SmackDown that Heyman aligned with the returning Roman Reigns portraying the character of his special counsel and "wise man."


Heyman has also competed sporadically in matches, namely the WWE Championship main event of the 2002 Rebellion pay-per-view. Over his career, Heyman has won Manager of the Year a number of times, Best Booker, Best on Interviews, Best Non-Wrestler, and Faction of the Year with The Bloodline. His work as a promoter and booker has been praised by many, and he's widely regarded as one of the best orators in the history of professional wrestling. But a difficult personality has led to feuds with wrestlers such as A.J. Styles and Gallows and Anderson over the years, too.

Paul Heyman was named to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame Class of 2005.

Personal Life

Paul Heyman is the father of two children. He suffers from insomnia.

In February 1993, Heyman filed a lawsuit against WCW alleging wrongful termination and ethnic discrimination. It was settled privately out of court.

Outside of wrestling, Heyman is a film enthusiast and has cited "Leon: The Professional" and "Angels with Dirty Faces" as his favorite movies. He is also a great admirer of Henry Rollins saying he's "one of the most underrated social commentators out there."
