Could fans once again see Montel Vontavious Porter in a WWE ring? 

As many will recall, Porter worked for America's No. 1 wrestling promotion from 2006-2010, during which time he played the brash and arrogant "MVP" character.

Porter, a solid mid-carder, was often named as a potential huge star in the company's future, but, after a few years, his once-promising career stalled and he quit the company to pursue other things—most notably a run in Japan.

In the intervening years the star has released a rather ridiculous rap song "Holla to the World", as well as finding success with New Japan Pro Wrestling becoming that company's first-ever IWGP Intercontinental Champion last year.

All in all, in his post-WWE life he seems to be doing quite well for himself. 

Though it would seem a second run with WWE isn't entirely out of the question.

As Prowrestling.net note, Porter recently revealed in an interview with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas that he's toying with the idea of making a return to the promotion that made him a star.

Speaking to Aftermath Radio, the former United States Champion was quizzed about a possible Stateside return. He said:

I'll tell you guys...I'm looking at the table, I'm looking at WWE and I'm looking at the talent pool, and what they've got and what's going on. You know, and I won't like to you: sometimes I go, "Hmmm, I wonder, what if?"...If I come back, it'll definitely be with WWE.   

Of course, all this is assuming WWE even want him back. It's very possible they will feel he's too old to trust with a sustained push; he is in his early 40's after all.

However, considering the depleted state of their roster in recent times, it's very possible they would jump at the chance of re-signing a star who is, it must be said, a great all-rounder with tons of charisma to boot.
