MVP had to make a choice after WrestleMania last year and he decided to take a role as WWE producer. That job quickly went away as the pandemic called for many house show producers to get cut. They were able to keep MVP around as the leader of the Hurt Business and he was able to continue in the ring.
While speaking to After The Bell, MVP admitted that he had “every intention” of retiring before WWE put him back in the mix. He had already accomplished a lot, but he’s very glad his career didn’t end so soon
“I had every intention of retiring. While I’ve had the honor and the pleasure of being in a few WrestleManias, I never thought I’d be in a WrestleMania again. I just thought okay that was cool, I never thought at any point thought that I would ever be in another WrestleMania let alone walking out as a representative of the WWE Champion. To be back in the role of talent at a WrestleMania in itself is exhilarating, to be at this WrestleMania, the first one with a crowd in over a year because of the pandemic and then to walk out with one of my best friends and business partners, from a year ago to now this journey we’ve made together, it was emotional on that level.”
“That energy was unreal, that passion it’s almost tangible, it’s unbelievable. To go from being at the Performance Centre, essentially working in an empty warehouse, to go from that to the ThunderDome to actually being in front of a crowd at WrestleMania, is almost indescribable.”
MVP is still leading WWE Champion Bobby Lashley on top of the red brand. We’ll have to see what’s next for him, because he now has an issue with a knee injury that could take some time to heal. He is avoiding surgery, but still able to manage the All Mighty with the help of a cane.
