MVP left the WWE almost nine years ago and landed in New Japan Pro Wrestling. He had to head overseas for that. In the WWE, MVP was nothing more than a mid-card wrestler but was able to win three titles. We might believe that it would be a very hard decision for MVP to leave the WWE.
MVP revealed on VICELAND on their show The Wrestlers that it was a very easy decision for him. He stated that he didn’t like the backstage politics of the WWE. "Japanese wrestling is my favorite wrestling. Wrestling for New Japan Pro-Wrestling at the Tokyo Dome, that was my dream," said MVP.
"Wrestlemania and the WWE was a goal. After having been at WWE and being somebody who was being groomed to be a world champion, I ran afoul of some politics and spent three months on a losing streak. I had a confrontation with one of the executives.
He came out of his mouth to me, sideways. I told him, 'Man, you don't talk to me like that.' He told me to go f*** myself. "At that moment I decided OK, I'm done here. I said, 'No, you go f*** yourself.'
" Many wrestlers feel the same way and quit the WWE. A number of talented wrestlers have asked the WWE to release them recently, and that can be due to the backstage politics that still exist within the company.
