– In an interview with with ThisIsNottingham.co.uk, SmackDown Superstar MVP explained why it took him so long to be a star. “It was just a matter of paying my dues along the way. You have to keep in mind that WWE is the best of the best within professional wrestling and you can’t just crack in those ranks straight away. You have to learn and perfect your craft. And it takes a while to do that, to compete at that level. And I’m glad that I didn’t come in straight away because when I did come in, it meant I could make an impact right away.”
The United States Champion was also asked whether the money in WWE is better than in armed robbery. “(Laughs) Oh yeah absolutely,” MVP said. “You know I tell people all the time that now I’m making more money than I’ve ever legally made in my life. The beautiful part is I don’t have to look over my shoulder or worry about anybody kicking my door in and coming to collect me at two in the morning.”
