MVP wants to create a new faction in WWE.
MVP, who had initially retired in January, is now 100% back into the main storylines on Monday Night Raw. Pairing himself with Bobby Lashley, MVP is embracing his microphone skills that have kept him in circulation with major wrestling promotions since 2006.
Speaking with talkSPORT, MVP opened up about wanting to create a new stable in WWE and the new talent within WWE that has impressed him.
“Absolutely. [Creating a new faction is] something I’ve been discussing and let’s see how things go… let’s just say there’s method to my madness! I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised if I can take this… just watch me work! I’ll leave it at that – watch me work,” said Montel Vontavious Porter.
Regarding the young talent in WWE that has impressed him, MVP would single out The Street Profits and Aleister Black as examples of the names in WWE that are crushing it today.
“I’m so pleased with the locker room. I’ve had a chance to see the SmackDown locker room and, of course, my locker room on RAW. Everybody has been tremendously cool. I’m blown away by the Street Profits. Those guys are just phenomenal talents,” he said. "The Viking Raiders, I finally got a chance to work with them a little while back in a tag match and before I got a chance to work with them, I was just impressed by their work. Phenomenal. Aleister Black is another guy that has impressed me a great deal in the ring and out of the ring and behind the scenes.”
“There is no shortage of amazing talent on both the SmackDown and RAW rosters and you’ve got a Performance Center full of hungry people that want an opportunity to step up to the next level. So there’s no shortage of people for me to work with.”
At WWE Extreme Rules, MVP will take on Apollo Crews for the WWE United States Championship. You can see the full card at this link.
