• MVP’s Position In WWE Has Changed
MVP returned to WWE at this year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view and said that he would be retiring from in-ring competition soon after his match with Rey Mysterio on the RAW after Royal Rumble.
He stayed with the company and started working as a Producer backstage.
PWInsider is now reporting that MVP no longer holds the position of a Backstage Producer, and he’s transitioning into a full-time wrestler once again.
There’s no word on why this move took place. MVP wrestled his first singles match in a while on this week’s RAW against WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
