Montel Vontavious Porter, commonly known as MVP, has been the guiding force for many rising talents in the WWE, from The Almighty Bobby Lashley to the Colossal Omos. It has been months since we saw MVP compete in a match. Rumors began swirling that he may have decided to hang up his boots. However, MVP has decided to comment on those floating speculations.
MVP’s recent statement led fans to believe that he retired from in-ring action. His last match came months ago at WWE Hell in a Cell in a 2-on-1 handicap match, teaming up with Omos against Bobby Lashley. The former WWE United States champion cleared the air about rumors surrounding his retirement from the ring on Twitter.
“MVP IS NOT RETIRED!!!!! I said I was never buying wrestling boots again. Somehow some IDIOTS turned that into my retirement.”
MVP made his debut in the WWE back in 2006, being involved in a high profile feuds with superstars like Kane and Matt Hardy until his departure in 2010. The franchise player resurfaced back to the global juggernaut as a surprise entrant in the 2020 Royal Rumble match. Since then, MVP has been an asset to WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night RAW, managing various superstars and also became the creator of the dominant faction, The Hurt Business.
MVP has emerged to become a mainstay on Monday Night RAW during his second coming in the WWE. He has proven himself to be an asset for WWE television programming and has also been credited for pushing the careers of superstars such as Shelton Benjamin, Bobby Lashley and Omos. Only time will tell what’s next for him, but MVP isn’t ending his in-ring career just yet.
