3-time Champion says he talked to Paul Heyman for WWE Royal Rumble return
MVP revealed that he wanted to give his son a memory he would remember forever, and that led to a talk with RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman.
"It arose from a conversation with Paul Heyman as a matter of fact. My son is five years old now, and he's become a massive wrestling fan. As he calls it, 'WW wrestling'. First, it was 'daddy fight. This is daddy fight.' Then 'daddy fight' became 'WW wrestling', and I look at like, 'Hey man, where are you getting this from? Where are you learning this?'
"But he's got WWE rings and action figures so with the Rumble being in Houston, where I reside. I'm from Miami. Miami will always be home, but I live in Houston. I thought what a great opportunity to give my son the memory of a lifetime, and I talked with Paul Heyman. It all came together."
MVP was a mainstay in WWE back in 2005-10, and is a two-time WWE US Champion. He made his return during the 2020 Royal Rumble match this past weekend, and was almost immediately eliminated from the free-for-all by WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.Published 01 Feb 2020, 09:27 IST
