• MVP Could Have Faced Death Penalty For Attending WWE Crown Jewel 2022 In Saudi Arabia
MVP is Omos’ manager, but he didn’t attend the WWE Crown Jewel 2022 premium live event in Saudi Arabia.
This is because MVP is a former Muslim who became an atheist. In Saudi Arabia, the renouncing of Islam by a Muslim is punishable by death.
For those who don’t know, MVP changed his real name from Alvin Antonio Burke Jr. to Hassan Hamin Assad after converting to Islam while spending almost 10 years in prison for kidnapping and armed robbery (which began at the age of 16).
Omos lost to Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel after getting hit with a Running Powerslam.
