– Former WWE Superstar MVP announced the end of his run with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Here is what he wrote Tuesday morning on Twitter:
“I would like to thank New Japan for allowing me to realize a dream! I LOVE Japan & will forever be grateful! I left on good terms as always,” MVP tweeted.
“I WILL return to wrestling eventually. The door is open for a return to WWE, NJPW & even TNA. However my focus now is developing my TV show.
“I’m currently working on a TV project with Lionsgate TV. 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!”
MVP joined New Japan in 2011 and wrestled his final match last month at the Tokyo Dome Show on January 4.

– For those of you who are wondering, there was no dark match main event after Raw last night. Punk hobbled to the back after the show ended.
