MVP Talks About Being Held Back & His Rap Music


WWE star MVP was interviewed by The Miami Herald this weekend to promote Survivor Series. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

Online Reports That His Spot In WWE Is In Jeopardy:

“There were a lot of the wrestling Internet sites that have been promoting this false information, I never at any point felt threatened or was worried about my spot. I put it bluntly. A lot of the guys coming in today don’t have the background in wrestling. A lot guys are being recruited as former college athletes, football players. They can’t do what I do. So I’ve never been concerned.

“Besides that, I wish them the best of luck. The more stars we have the better the product is. So if they are developing new stars, that is great, but at no point have I felt threatened or concerned or anything along those lines. I go out there every night win, lose or draw, and I still get one of the biggest receptions from the crowd every night, no matter where we go in the world. When the WWE universe stops accepting me, then I will know something is wrong.”

His Hip Hop Career & Recording Songs With R-Truth and John Cena:

“There is a project that I’m working on. I had a track that was produced by myself and one of my partners. John Cena came by my house. I have a studio in my house. I put a verse on it. He put a verse on it, and it sounded real good.

Then I came up with an idea to add R-Truth to it and make it a WWE single with three guys on the roster that perform their own entrance music and can actually rap. The office has been real receptive to it, and it’s something that will eventually get done. It’s a matter of scheduling. I’d say the near future on that one. I finally got my theme song out; so that’s going. I have a bunch of other stuff that I’m working on. It’s just having the schedule to have the time to get into the studio.”
