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.
