During the WWE draft on the first ever live edition of SmackDown, Brock Lesnar was drafted to RAW. However, it is interesting to note that Heyman wasn't specifically mentioned to join Lesnar, while other managers/valets such as Lana and Maryse were mentioned when Rusev and Miz were drafted.

During Wednesday's installment of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer mentioned that the reason Heyman's name was not mentioned on air is because his WWE contract has expired, and both the parties haven't reached an agreement yet to renew his contract. While both the sides can resolve their issues, nothing is certain at this point, which is why WWE decided not to bring him up when Brock Lesnar was drafted to RAW.
