MVP and Major League Wrestling Part Ways

mvp mlw part ways major league wrestling vip lounge

MVP took to Instagram this weekend to announce he’s no longer doing business with Major League Wrestling, describing the situation as “unfortunate.”

“For reasons that I won’t get into — because I still don’t completely understand — but, you know, it’s professional wrestling,” MVP said in regards to his departure.

The former two-time WWE United States champ noted he’ll still appear in a few more episodes of MLW Fusion, but after that he’ll be gone. Adding, “MLW has an awesome cast of tremendously talented young people whom I support whole-heartedly.”

Montell explained he’d continue to work indie dates, while possibly relaunch his “VIP Lounge” podcast elsewhere — and ended the video saying, “card subject to change.”

Back in April, the 44-year-old tweeted out interest in possibly returning to WWE.  Earlier this year, he appeared in backstage segments as part of the RAW 25 broadcast.

Watch his full statement in the video below.

  1. Why would you just randomly refer to him as “Montell” in the middle of the article? You didn’t even take the time to explain what MVP stands for in the opening paragraph, which would open the door for such a reference.

    Also, Montel is spelled with only 1 L. And his real name is Alvin Antonio Burke Jr. I thought Pro Wrestling Sheet wasn’t going to cut corners or play along with kayfabe like the other dirt sheets do?

    Give us REAL, man. That’s the only reason to keep visiting a site that updates twice a week and gave up on its podcast for a while when there are sites updating hourly who are going to play along with kayfabe.

  2. MVP fired by another wrestling company??????

    Color me stunned. MVP is the same douche bag that was hired by Lucha Underground one week, only to be fired the very next week. Can’t make that up. He is nothing but a guy who believes his own hype.

    Fuck you, MVP.
