MVP made a surprising return to WWE at the Royal Rumble, appearing in the Men's Royal Rumble match. The following night on Raw, MVP wrestled Rey Mysterio. After the bout, MVP stated the match with Mysterio would be his final WWE match.
Speaking to Corey Graves on WWE After The Bell, MVP revealed that while he's not quite ready to hang up his boots, he does have a future job in mind.
"I'm at that point in my career, I'm 46, and I've always said my intentions were to retire around 45. I can still go and am still in great shape. But I know the clock is ticking and retirement is looming. After such an exhilarating and amazing weekend in WWE, I still feel I have a lot to offer. However, I'm at a point in my career where I think I'm ready to start offering my talents behind the scenes or in another capacity. In the very near future, I see myself hanging up the boots and moving from in-ring competitor to behind the scenes producer," he said.
It is unknown when MVP will officially retire from the ring. WWE has made a habit of hiring former superstars as backstage producers. The company recently hired Sylvain Grenier as a producer.
