#4 MVP (WWE, 2005-10, 2020-present)

The Hurt Business's mouthpiece, MVP left WWE after a 6-year tenure in 2011 to pursue his lifelong passion for Puroresu. At the time, he was already a decorated competitor. He won the WWE United States Championship twice, and he also held the WWE Tag Team Championship with Matt Hardy. But his decision to leave the company stemmed from years of creative dissatisfaction. 

MVP signed with NJPW, and he forced the IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Hiroshi Tanahashi in a tag team match. Later, he participated in a tournament to determine the inaugural IWGP Intercontinental Champion. MVP won this competition, and his reign lasted 148 days before he lost the title to Masato Tanaka. At Wrestle Kingdom VI, he teamed up with his current stablemate, Shelton Benjamin.

MVP's overall stint with NJPW didn't last very long. He departed the promotion after just two years. MVP worked with IMPACT Wrestling, and he competed on the independent scene, for a few years. MVP eventually rejoined WWE in 2020, and he has become a mainstay of WWE RAW.
