MVP made his return to WWE during the 2020 Royal Rumble event, much to the surprise of fans. It was initially going to be a one-off appearance but MVP decided to stick with the company for a longer time. It seems MVP is working hard to make his in-ring return as well.

MVP suffered a knee injury last year that has put him out of in-ring action since September of last year. While not competing inside the square circle, MVP has remained on WWE television as Bobby Lashley’s manager.

While speaking with Freddie Prinze Jr. on iHeart Radio’s Wrestling With Freddie, MVP gave fans an update regarding his rehab process. MVP revealed that his knee has fully healed and he is working hard to get medically cleared for an in-ring return.

“I’m going through my physical assessment to get cleared to get back in the ring because I had that knee injury for a while. It’s all healed up, it’s just a matter of me jumping through hoops to make sure I’m physically capable of performing in the ring. I’m feeling good. The knee injury, the torn meniscus, is completely healed. Now it’s just a matter of rebuilding the strength in the leg from the atrophied muscle. My teardrop is gone, nonexistent, we’re working on building that back up. My cardio is much better than I thought it would be because I actually hired a trainer and have been working on it. I’m further along than I thought I would be, fortunately, my back isn’t gasping for air. I feel pretty damn good.”


Carmelo Hayes previously teased doing business with MVP as well. It remains to be seen when MVP will be making his return to the squared circle as fans are waiting to see him back in the ring.
