MVP made his in-ring return in the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble match after spending ten years in the Independent circuit. A few months later, MVP aligned with Bobby Lashley and formed the Hurt Business faction along with Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander.
A year later, WWE management decided to disband the Hurt Business faction. MVP was stuck with Bobby Lashley as his manager before turning on Lashley in April 2022.
MVP is now managing 7-foot-3 inches 400-pound “Nigerian Giant” Omos on WWE television. Many fans questioned MVP’s in-ring status due to MVP not competing for a long time.
The former United States Champion tweeted that he hasn’t retired from in-ring competition.
“I haven’t officially retired. I still have a few matches left in me. But not many. My final match hasn’t happened yet. But it probably isn’t too far off in the distant future either. I enjoy my current role.
I promise you I will tell you when I’ve had my last match. 🤙🏽”
