On this week’s episode of MLW Radio, MVP, who is currently not affiliated with any wrestling organization, revealed his intention to return to television later this year.
In response to whether he would be joining TNA Wrestling as their hyped free agent signing (before it was announced as mixed martial artist Quinton “Rampage” Jackson), he said, “I have to deny it. It’s not me, but I will be back on US TV later this year. I promise. Not saying anything more than that.”
Following his departure from New Japan Pro Wrestling in February, the 37-year-old revealed on Twitter that he was working on a television program with Lionsgate TV that has no connection to professional wrestling. He stated then, “I’ll release more details soon. But right now I’m not affiliated with ANY company. And for the record my show has NOTHING to do with wrestling. I’m excited about it. The people at Lionsgate TV have been awesome!”
In his interview with MLW Radio, the internationally acclaimed wrestler encouraged WWE Universe members to broaden their wrestling scope and check out other organizations.
“There are some people, that to them, wrestling is WWE. In the same way that to some people, any cola is a Coke. There is amazing wrestling going on all around the world outside of WWE. You’ve got AAA in Mexico and CMLL. In Japan you have the company I was just working for, the legendary New Japan Pro Wrestling, the historically significant All Japan and Pro Wrestling NOAH. These people are fans of WWE and it’s a beautiful thing, but to me it’s a travesty,” he said.
MVP also discussed Vince McMahon’s positive and negative qualities, the psyche of working for WWE, Kenta Kobashi’s recent retirement, and more. To listen to the interview, click here.
