Former WWE Superstar MVP was recently interviewed by WSVN-TV entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet at Coastal Championship Wrestling in Coral Springs, FL on Saturday.
MVP talked about why he hated his WWE entrance theme, how he was able to kick out of The Undertaker’s chokeslam, whether he would like to return to WWE after his appearance at RAW 25.
Here’s a few highlights from the interview:
He always hated his WWE entrance theme
“I always hated that theme. I never liked that theme. As a matter of fact, I remember the first time they gave it to me I took it home and I listened to it and I was like it’s alright. They then called me and told me Vince wanted to talk to me in the arena. So I went out by the ring and he was like ‘Yeah, come over here MVP let’s listen to your music.’ They played it in the arena and Vince was very unrhythmically bopping to it and he goes ‘What do you think?’ so I said ‘If you like it, I love it boss.'”
Could Ronda Rousey beat him up in real life?
“No. God no. Of course not.”
Would he want to return to WWE?
“Put it this way, I’ll return when CM Punk returns. No, I’m as busy as I want to be. I don’t want a full time schedule in WWE. I always said I’d be out when I’m 45. I’ll be 45 in October but I still feel good so I think I think I got a couple of years left in me. So I think I’ll just take it year to year. If you’re a fan of professional wrestling especially on the indy scene you see guys that were heroes once upon a time and they stay in the game too long and then they become caricatures of themselves.
When it gets to a point where I can’t perform at a level that I feel is adequate then I’m done at that point. I’ve always said that I want to walk away I don’t want to limp away. I’m starting to limp now so the time is near.”
How he kicked out of The Undertaker’s chokeslam:
“Well let’s put it like this somebody was supposed to make a save and they weren’t there. I heard this little growl ‘kick out.’ So I kicked out of the chokeslam because somebody else f**ked up. The Not-So-Great-Khali was supposed to make the save. He had no clue what was going on. He was just disinterested. He would do that from time to time.”
