Paul Heyman returned to WWE for the first time since late 2006, appearing on tonight's RAW as Brock Lesnar's "legal representative."

Heyman took shots at today's WWE for being so "image conscious," and then read a statement from Lesnar, who stated that he was quitting the company and was "never coming back." Of course, this is all storyline.

WWE Champion CM Punk hinted at Heyman's return on his Twitter earlier today, writing, "Trust me when I say this #RAW will be fantastic. I love knowing stuff nobody knows. I tweet happy today. Hell, I'm just happy. Nice spending time with an old friend.

"Who wants to see who I've been hanging with? Okay. I'm having a blast with this. Here he is. The man. MY man. And he's headed to the ring.... "

Punk proceeded to tweet the following photo of Heyman heading to the ring:
