The last time that Montel Vontavious Porter – better known as MVP – wrestled in south Florida, it was four years ago and with a different company.  Now, the Miami-based wrestler is finally making his return as part of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling’s Lockdown event this Sunday which airs live on pay-per-view.

“It’s not just coming home to Miami, it’s coming home to Miami with a new company, a new attitude and the fact that we’re at BankUnited Center which is in Coral Gables where the University of Miami Hurricanes play,” said MVP (Hassan Assad).  “As a matter of fact, I’m going to wear a Hurricanes jersey out to the ring.  I’m going to wear my orange, green and white Hurricane ring gear with a jersey on top because it’s all about The U.  And The U invented swag and in professional wrestling, nobody has more swag than MVP.”

The last time he wrestled in the United States, it was in 2010 with World Wrestling Entertainment.  After a successful five years with the company, he decided it was time for a change.
