While plugging the annual Tribute to the Troops show during a radio appearance on The Opie & Anthony Show last week, Raw Superstar Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) admitted his fondness for marijuana.
During the radio show appearance, he relayed a story from his recent trip to Iraq where one of the soldiers noted that a lot of marijuana is grown in Afghanistan. He then expressed his disappointment in WWE not going to Afghanistan this year.
MVP also said that while he enjoys smoking pot, he no longer does because the $2,500 fines started to stack up.
MVP then told story about doing a tryout match for TNA and that a “washed-up wrestler” came up to him and told him he was sitting in his seat. He sensed the guy was looking to pick a fight, so he he got up and punched him in the face. When asked who it was, he said that his name rhymes with Maven.
He was also asked about “ring rats” and said he got into the wrestling business ten years too late because there are no longer women waiting by the hotels after shows. MVP blames this on Vince McMahon putting on a PG show.
