During an interview with the Gorilla Position podcast, MVP talked about his current run with WWE:

It went so well that I was invited to San Antonio the night next for Monday Night RAW and I was given an opportunity to wrestle Rey Mysterio whos my sons favorite wrestler. And then I was offered a job as a producer which I accepted because I had the intention of retiring anyway, and I was working as a producer and then I was asked to do an on-screen V.I.P. Lounge and then I was asked to do a short match and another on-screen segment and another and another and another.

Before I knew it, my producer my responsibilities as a producer became less and less as I was asked to do more and more as talent, and now I can say that the WWE and myself are in negotiations for a long-term deal.

I really see myself moving into a Heyman-esque role as I get older, but I still have a good two-to-three years of bumping left in this body. I can still go, and Ive done just about everything that Ive wanted to do and I think maybe winning the tag titles with Lashley, send Lashley to a WWE Championship run. Those are some of the things Id like to see.

For now, for the immediate future, I would like to continue to be involved in the ring and have singles matches and tag matches. But over the next couple of years, I imagine Ill be doing less of that and more of just the managerial responsibilities and Im enjoying that a great deal.
