Just weeks after announcing that his match with Rey Mysterio on the January 27 episode of Monday Night Raw would be his last ever for WWE, Montel Vontavious Porter — better known to fans as MVP — surprised fans by appearing on this week's episode of the red brand's eponymous show. While he didn't take part in a match, he hosted a new edition of his old "VIP Lounge" in-ring talk show, interviewing this year's men's Royal Rumble winner, Drew McIntyre, unsuccessfully offering to be the Scotsman's manager and taking a Claymore kick from him as the segment wrapped up.
So far, it looks like MVP has yet to sign a new contract with WWE despite his most recent return to Raw. However, PWInsider wrote on Monday night that the "word making the rounds" is that the 46-year-old former United States Champion might be rejoining the company as a producer. This, as noted by WrestlingNews.co, would mean he could be working a similar role as fellow "Ruthless Aggression" era mid-carder Shane Helms and other backstage employees that have returned to the promotion in non-wrestling capacities.
"That talk persisted tonight backstage at Raw, so if all works out, that looks to be his eventual role for the company," PWInsider's Mike Johnson wrote.
