MVP, known for his two notable runs with WWE, has not appeared regularly on WWE television for a long time now. While taking a break from his usual on-screen activities, MVP revealed he was awarded a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

MVP had a rough upbringing and grew up fending for himself on numerous occasions. In fact, he spent several years in jail and MVP has always acknowledged how it changed him.

MVP recently shared a significant achievement on his Instagram, announcing that after 11 years of dedicated training, he has earned his black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He expressed gratitude to his professors who guided him throughout the journey and emphasized that achieving the black belt was not the end but the start of a new chapter.

”So, I did a thing. I achieved a milestone accomplishment in life. After nearly 11 years I have attained the rank of black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. And on the same day my Professor received his 5th degree. I plan to post a gratitude video very soon. SO many people that contributed to this accomplishment on my journey. So many training partners and teachers to thank. But for now, thank you Professor Andre Santos ( @andregb_061 ) for the passion, the commitment, the time, the friendship and the brotherhood. You were there every belt promotion, every competition, every win, every loss, every injury, every step along the way. Also, thank you to Professor @sergiocostagb , Professor @flavioalmeidagb and of course Master @liberigb . This isn’t the finish line. It’s only the beginning of a new chapter. “El fin es el principio.”


While MVP’s appearances on television have become less frequent, his protégé, Omos, continues to make a mark at WWE Live Events, demonstrating his dominance in the ring. As for MVP, his new black belt status could influence his role within WWE or even lead to new ventures outside the wrestling world.
