MVP has confirmed that he has re-signed with WWE and will be staying with the company for the foreseeable future. MVP returned to WWE earlier this year as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble. That appearance, as well as a match against Rey Mysterio the following night on Raw, was to be a short term thing. At least as television was concerned. MVP was supposed to work behind the scenes moving forward. However, he has found himself more involved with television of late, including a feud with Apollo Crews over the U.S. Championship. The two will wrestle at SummerSlam for the title.
MVP announced the news on Instagram with the following post.
Tonight, I’m drinking “the good stuff”. Yamazaki 18 from @suntorywhisky is the spirit of choice. I have come to terms with @wwe on a multi year deal. MVP is in #thehurtbusiness for the foreseeable future! Kampai! ?
NOW… it’s official!
