MVP has given fans an update on his return from a knee injury, revealing that he’s working on getting cleared to get back in the ring.
Montel Vontavious Porter hasn’t wrestled since the September 6th episode of Monday Night Raw where he teamed with Bobby Lashley as part of Tag Team Turmoil. It was later revealed that the star had suffered a knee injury and would be out of action for an extended period.
Appearing on the Wrestling with Freddie podcast, with Freddie Prinze Jr, the veteran has now offered an update on his recovery. MVP revealed that the injury was actually a torn meniscus, but it’s now fully healed. His next target is passing the necessary assessments in order to get back in the ring.
“I’m going through my physical assessment to get cleared to get back in the ring because I had that knee injury for a while. It’s all healed up, it’s just a matter of me jumping through hoops to make sure I’m physically capable of performing in the ring. I’m feeling good. The knee injury, the torn meniscus, is completely healed.
Now it’s just a matter of rebuilding the strength in the leg from the atrophied muscle. My teardrop is gone, non-existent, we’re working on building that back up. My cardio is much better than I thought it would be because I actually hired a trainer and have been working on it. I’m further along than I thought I would be, fortunately, my back isn’t gasping for air. I feel pretty damn good,”
Although he’s been out of the ring, MVP remained by the side of Bobby Lashley as he regained the WWE Championship. However, Lashley hasn’t been seen since competing inside the Elimination Chamber, where he was taken out of the match before he even got in the ring.
After the event it was reported that the All-Mighty was set for a spell on the side-lines as he required shoulder surgery.
