Now, Carmelo is talking about his relationship with MVP, calling him a mentor and akin to a cool uncle

"That's my dawg. MVP, I'm so grateful to have him in my corner," Carmelo said on Black Announce Table. "He's an OG that will give you the realness of it. He's not going to get anything out of me in that way. 'Don't do this, don't do that. Do this, do that.' Like a father figure, for real. More like a cool Uncle. If Shawn (Michaels) is a father figure, MVP is like a cool uncle. I shot my shot with that man. He showed up one time at the PC. I said, 'Hey man, can I talk to you?' I pitched him an idea I had. He liked it and was digging it. He said, 'let me take down your number,' and now we're cool. He requested me to train with him to get back in the ring. We got in the ring, worked for a couple of weeks, and now he's a mentor to me, for real."

Elsewhere in the interview, Carmelo continues to manifest a future WrestleMania match between himself and Seth Rollins. Learn more here.
