MVP was a kind of out of left field (pun intended, because they were in a baseball park) surprise entrant in Sunday’s Royal Rumble match. It wasn’t clear how long he was back with WWE for, but most reports indicated it was only a limited number of dates.
Turns out, it was just for Royal Rumble and his match with Rey Mysterio the following night (Jan. 27) on Raw.
The man himself explains:

One for the history books. My FINAL WWE match took place on Monday Night RAW against my close friend and legend @619iamlucha A great way to close out that chapter. The end of my career looms larger every month. It's been one HELL of a ride! I'm not finished just yet. But soon. Very soon. Thank you @wwe and the #wweuniverse for all the love!!! What an amazing week I've had.
Never say never and all that. But if MVP’s right and that was his last WWE match, he went out on his back, putting over a friend.
