MVP recently fired back at reports that he is no longer a backstage producer in WWE. What is really going on in this situation?
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter cleared up what happened with MVP. He was backstage producer in WWE until the recent April 15th releases. He was one of the producers who was furloughed from their position.
Since MVP was also playing a part on-screen the decision was made to keep him on television.
Because of his late hiring, like with many other of the most recent hires, he was furloughed as a producer because the company doesn’t need so many. But by that time he was already in the Lashley manager spot so he is now just talent and no longer a producer.
It is possible that WWE will insert MVP back into a backstage producer role. At this time they just don’t need him in that position. Luckily for MVP, WWE found a spot for him on television.
