• MVP’s In-Ring Career Came To An End With A Symbolic Act On RAW
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Drew McIntyre defeated MVP in a singles match.
During the match, McIntyre ripped off the tape on MVP’s nose and the Wrestling Observer is reporting that this was a symbolic act for the end of MVP’s in-ring career:
