MVP Says He's Negotiating A Long-Term Deal With WWE

MVP looked to be almost out of the wrestling business to start the year, but now he's in with both feet.

Following a surprise appearance at the 2020 Royal Rumble, MVP has continued to be featured on WWE television, occupying roles as a talk show host, manager, and wrestler.

Speaking to The Gorilla Position, MVP revealed he's currently in negotiations with WWE regarding a long-term deal with the company. 

"I had every intention of retiring this year. For him, I reached out to WWE about being a surprise entry into the Rumble and they welcomed me with open arms. It was meant to be a gift for my son and it went so well that I was invited to the next night on Raw and I was given an opportunity to wrestle Rey Mysterio, who is my son's favorite wrestler. Then, I was offered a job as a producer, which I accepted because I had every intention of retiring anyway. I was working as a producer and I was asked to do an on-screen VIP Lounge, then a short match, and another on-screen segment, and another, and before I knew it, my responsibilities as a producer became less and less and I was asked to do more and more as a talent. Now, I can say that WWE and myself are in negotiations for a long-term deal," he said.

MVP is currently claiming to be the United States Champion after Apollo Crews failed to show up for their match at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.
