- MVP recently appeared on The V2 Wrestling Podcast. Here are some highlights:

His goals in TNA:
“WWE is a spectacular company, and their market saturation and visibility is monstrous, but the most prosperous time during the history of wrestling was during the Monday Night Wars when WWF was going head-to-head with WCW. You had 12 million people a week tuning in to watch wrestling, and the fans benefited as well as the wrestlers. TNA is a smaller company and doesn’t have the outreach and audience that WWE does, but I’d like to try, along with some of the other guys, to move the needle a little bit, and try to create something where fans can go ‘Hey, this is really cool, there’s something going on over here that we can watch as well,’ because I firmly believe that there’s room for two big dogs in the yard.”

The recent departures of Sting and Hulk Hogan:
“While it’s sad to see them go, it’s also tremendously exciting to see that void filled by new stars who are stepping up and working hard to try to become legends in their own right.”

Chris Benoit:
“When I got signed, we traveled together, we trained together, and he was hugely responsible for my success. Of course, you can’t condone what he did, but I tell people all the time, there’s an issue with mental illness. There’s a stigma attached to it. If someone has cancer, we feel sorry for them, but if somebody has a mental breakdown, we don’t feel the same way. All those negative connotations make people sometimes not want to get help if there’s something going wrong. What Chris did was horrible, it was tragic, but I knew him personally, and I knew that he loved his wife and child, and I had been to that home and I had interacted with them personally.”

    Funny thing is, i can actually picture this happening. Im imagining an Scrappy Doo let me at ‘em scenario.

  • Andre

    I hope Sting finally signs with WWE and we see him and Taker truely define an ERA. But I can see HHH in the back telling Vince “Put him with me Im the king of kings Im the the measuring stick the diamond I’ll beat him Vince its what the people want its GOOD FOR BUSINESS”
