WWE Star Reveals He Doesn’t Want To See Nation Of Domination Reformed

Many fans were confused when WWE Hall of Famers Ron Simmons and Mark Henry randomly appeared backstage on the 07/20 and 07/27 episodes of Monday Night Raw, without any real explanation.

It has since been reported that both Simmons and Henry were brought in to start the reformation of the Nation of Domination. For those that don’t know, the faction helped launch the career of The Rock many years ago.

According to reports, the script for the 07/20 episode of Raw was torn up just hours before the show was set to be taped. Reports indicate that one of the angles scrapped was the reformation of the faction.

While an exact reason for the plans being scrapped hasn’t been revealed, it has emerged that members of the WWE roster reportedly weren’t too keen on re-starting the faction, especially given recent world events.

While speaking on the  Say Less with Kaz and Lowkey show, current Raw star MVP revealed that the plan won’t be coming back. He also stated that he wouldn’t be on board with the plans to re-form the group:

“No, no, short answer is no, because I’ve been hearing the chatter and I’ve been seeing that and I don’t wanna do the new anything. The Nation was done, it was awesome in the time that it was done. It was needed, stars were made

“I don’t wanna rehash something else, I wanna bring something new, and I don’t necessarily, in our approach to The Hurt Business, me and Bobby, as you know are legitimate friends away from wrestling. We boys. Shelton is one of my closest friends. I just like making money with my friends, you know what I’m saying? And I see young, talented guys — I asked to worked with Apollo. I said, ‘Give me him, let me work with him. I know we can get it out of him.’ He’s got it, he’s tremendously talented. He just needs a little coaxing, he just needs a little help, some understanding and me and Apollo, we’ll work on things together, we’ll have conversations before certain segments and he’s coachable.

“That’s why he’s been successful. Now I’ve always wanted to work with Ricochet. Ricochet has been one of my favorite dudes for years. I used to tell him, ‘If you could talk like you wrestle, you’d be a millionaire.’ I used to tell him that all the time and now, unfortunately I also tell him all the time now, ‘At this stage of my career, I can’t have the kind of match that I’d like to have with you, but we can still have a great match just because of my veteranship and understanding of how things go’ but, I have no interest in rehashing the Nation of Domination and while I do wanna present myself and Bobby and Shelton as strong black role models, successful, we’re businessmen.

“We’re not trying to make a statement on race. We’re trying to just make a statement, and in our case, what we’re trying to do, it’s not about black or white, it’s about gold and green, and at that point, I love the fact that there are young men of color that can watch us and go, ‘Oh, I wanna be like them’ because when I was a kid, I used to wanna be like Rocky Johnson and Tony Atlas. ‘Man, when I grow up, I wanna look like that. I wanna be like them.’”

Speaking of MVP, the former TNA star is going to go one-on-one for the United States Champion tonight on Raw with a returning Apollo Crews. For live coverage of the show, stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com.
