Paul Heyman Says Bringing MVP Back To WWE Was One Of His Best Decisions

Paul Heyman

Paul Heyman has heaped praise on MVP, describing his decision to bring him back to WWE as one of the very best he ever made.

MVP originally signed with WWE in 2005, enjoying a five year spell with the company which included two United States Title victories, and a brush with tag team gold alongside Matt Hardy.

After leaving WWE, MVP headed to New Japan before appearing across the independent scene and notably in Ring Of Honor and IMPACT Wrestling. The star finally made a shock return to WWE, a decade after he left, in the 2020 Royal Rumble. Although MVP was quickly eliminated by Brock Lesnar, he went on to join forces with Bobby Lashley, guiding him to WWE Championship glory.

At the time of MVP’s return, Paul Heyman was working as Executive Director of Raw and was later revealed to be instrumental in bringing the former United States Champion back into the fold.

In a recent post on social media, MVP shared a photo of himself with Heyman writing that his return may have been inspired by his son, but it was facilitated by the former ECW boss. In response, Heyman shared the photo on his Instagram Stories, noting that bringing MVP back was one of the best decisions he ever made.

“Of all the decisions made as #executivedirector of @wwe #RAW, this ranks up there with the very best ones I made. Proud to call @the305MVP a dear friend, a respected co-worker, a fellow loving father and a co-conspirator! “I am, indeed, humbled by this post. By the way, OMG was I fat!”

On the most recent episode of SmackDown, tensions finally came to a head between Roman Reigns and his Special Counsel Paul Heyman. Reigns’ questioned Heyman’s loyalty once more, before a slip of the tongue from Heyman who suggested he was protecting the Tribal Chief from Brock Lesnar landed him in hot water. At this, Reigns thanked Heyman for his service to his family before firing him, sealing the deal with a Superman Punch.

With Reigns looking to continue the beatdown, Lesnar arrived in the ring demolishing The Usos before hitting an F-5 on the Universal Champion.
