MVP made his return at the recent Royal Rumble event along with legendary WWE Hall of Famer, Edge.
MVP was on Chasing Glory podcast recently where he spoke about leaving WWE about 10 years ago. According to him, he actually wanted to start fighting in Japan. "My dream was to wrestle in Japan," MVP stated. "When I started professional wrestling, I was first introduced to Japanese wrestling.
Norman Smiley introduced me to Japanese wrestling. He wrestled in Japan for some time. [After watching some videos of Japanese wrestling] I was like Woah, that's intense, wow! So, I had a dream that I wanted to wrestle in the Tokyo Dome.
I wanted to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling”. He also revealed that WWE actually wanted to re-sign him. They saw potential in him, as he was a very good heel and easily got heat from the crowd. "I had a year left on my deal, and they were trying to get me to re-sign a five-year deal.
I just didn't want to at the time. My inner flame was kind of flickering, and Japan was calling me. I needed that fire again." MVP decided to return to WWE after fulfilling his wish to fight in Japan. That is the reason why we see him in WWE again.
Before joining WWE, he also worked for TNA. "When I was ready to come back to WWE, I got a call from TNA, and they offered me a really good deal," MVP recalled. "It was, you know, less workload, a consumable amount of money,”
