MVP's status with WWE
MVP was a guest on The Gorilla Position podcast. On the show, the self-proclaimed United States Champion spoke about his second run in WWE and that he and the company are in talks about a long term contract.
“I had every intention of retiring this year. I’m from Miami but I reside in Houston. My son has become a massive wrestling fan. For him, I reached out to WWE about being a surprise entry in the Rumble. They welcomed me with open arms. It was meant to be for my son. It went so well that I was invited to come to San Antonio the next night for Monday Night Raw. I was given an opportunity to wrestle Rey Mysterio who is my son’s favorite wrestler. I was offered a job as a producer which I accepted because I had the intention of retiring anyway. I was working as a producer. They asked me to do an on screen VIP Lounge. Then I was asked to do a short match and then another on screen segment and then another. Before I knew it, my responsibility as a producer became less and less asI was asked to do more and more as a talent. Now I can say that the WWE and myself are in negotiations for a long term deal.” (WrestlingNews.co)
