• Former WWE Wrestler Didn’t Become World Champion Because Of His Criminal Background
During an appearance on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast, former WWE Superstar MVP revealed that there were talks of him becoming the World Champion, but it eventually didn’t happen because of his criminal background.
Below is what MVP said:
“There was a time, it was relayed to me by some of the writers who I had become friends with and people higher up on the chain, that there was talk about me having a World Championship run.
But there was a lot of hesitation because there were certain countries that wouldn’t allow me in because of my violent felony past. And I can’t blame WWE for that. That’s a business decision.
But I’m like, ‘damn, I’m still paying. All these years later, I’m still paying’. If the laws are set up that you are released from prison then once the rules of our society have established that you are allowed to be back in society, then you should have the rights of every other member of society. That’s my take.”
