MVP Discusses Batista Sticking Up For Him In WWE, Vince McMahon, More

MVP recently appeared on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, here are the highlights…

On Batista Getting a Match Finish Changed to Help MVP: “We had been doing a television feud. It wasn’t a pay-per-view feud, but, every week, he and I were going through something, wrestling, and he had beaten me, like, two weeks in a row on TV. And the finish that day was he was going to beat me again. And I know my role. I’m a heel! He’s the money guy. He’s a star. That’s what I’m there for. I have no problem with that. Dave had a problem with it because he said, ‘why am I beating you again? This does nothing for you. This does nothing for me. This is pointless.’ His exact words [were], ‘you’re a f–king guy we can do something with. Why am I beating you again?’. This is what Dave said. I said, ‘f–k it, Dave. I’m working in the main event against you. I’m cool. That’s fine. I’m making that main event money. I’m getting the rub.’ He goes, ‘no, f–k that. It’s bulls–t. Lets go talk to Vince [McMahon].’” MVP continued, “Dave literally took me in to Vince and said, ‘Vince, it doesn’t make sense.’ That doesn’t happen very often in the world of professional wrestling. There aren’t that many guys that think that selflessly and see the picture in that way, so that’s the kind of guy he is.”

On What It Was Changed To: “We came up with a finish where we’d fight outside the ring, he’d be kicking my ass outside the ring, and I’d be running away from him during the count, so as I dive into the ring, I win by count out. And I kind of slid out [of] the backside of the ring and I was still scared and I’m showing, ‘oh s–t’ and [the announcer says], ‘and the winner, by count out, MVP!’ and I get my swagger back and I was like, ‘yeah, that’s right! That’s right! I won!’ And that was the finish that we came up with. Dave did that.”

On Vince McMahon Not Believing That Batista Would Leave For Hollywood: “With [Batista’s] movie career, I remember the day he left and it was crazy because Muriel, the security guard, she walked him out and he was telling me, he goes, ‘Vince doesn’t think I’m leaving. He thinks I’m bulls–tting him. He doesn’t think I’m serious.’” MVP added, “[Batista] literally walked away from millions of dollars a year on the chance that he’d make it in Hollywood [and McMahon was saying,] ‘he’s not going to walk away from all this money.’”

Backstage WrestleMania 32 News – The Rock’s Limited Role + Bigger Layout

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

While the Rock has announced his appearance at WrestleMania 31, don’t expect him to be heavily on television to promote the show. Rock took to Instagram on Monday to confirm he will be at this year’s show, but he will also in the process of filming Baywatch in Atlanta, Georgia in March and April and the WON reports that he isn’t likely to appear on Raw much or do a ton of promotional work.

It is worth noting that Smackdown will tape from Atlanta on March 1st, which is the second Smackdown after Fast Lane. It’s always a possibility that he could appear for that show.

In other WrestleMania news, WWE will be using a smaller stage for NXT Takeover: Dallas during that weekend which will allow for a larger crowd. The planned stage will allow for 9,156 fans instead of the usual 7,000 for the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, which should allow for the third largest NXT crowd to date after NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and Takeover: London.
