The “Straight Ballin’” Superstar from WWE’s Ruthless Aggression era, MVP, has revealed that he will never step foot into a WWE ring again and says the clock is winding down on his wrestling career.
Debuting in WWE in 2006 as part of the SmackDown brand, Montel Vontavious Porter, would go on to have great success in his initial year-and-a-half in WWE, winning both the United States Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship. Over time, opportunities became more scarce for the character on television and MVP would be released by WWE on December 2, 2010.
At the 2020 Royal Rumble, MVP made his return to WWE as a special surprise for his son. in the Rumble match, he would be quickly disposed of by Brock Lesnar and then have a match the following night on WWE Raw with his son's favorite wrestler, Rey Mysterio.
MVP has now revealed via his Instagram that his match with Mysterio was his final match under the WWE banner and would go on to further say that his overall career is coming to an end soon before thanking WWE and reflecting on the weekend.
One for the history books. My FINAL WWE match took place on Monday Night RAW against my close friend and legend @619iamlucha A great way to close out that chapter. The end of my career looms larger every month. It's been one HELL of a ride! I'm not finished just yet. But soon. Very soon. Thank you @wwe and the #wweuniverse for all the love!!! What an amazing week I've had.
