A First look at the Wrestling Retribution Project

February 5, 2012

MVP is Hassan Assad in the Wrestling Retribution Project (logo & picture are from wrestlingretributionproject.com)

Here’s the first trailer released for Jeff Katz’ Wrestling Retribution Project. You can see Colt Cabana, Chris Hero, Luke Gallows, and PWG favorite, Joey Ryan, throughout the trailer. The action looks solid but I’m more impressed with the usage of the song “Intro” from one my favorite bands, The xx. Yeah, I realize that wasn’t very “wrestling head” of me to say but I have to admit I’m a little disappointed that MVP isn’t shown for more than a second or two in the trailer. Hopefully, he’ll be featured more in the next one. I’m looking forward to seeing more. Enjoy.

MVP on Japan and leaving the WWE

January 2, 2012

The Miami Herald posted an interview with MVP. MVP talks about why he left the WWE, speaking with John Laurinaitis, and his career in Japan. It’s a great read. Here’s a brief excerpt:

 “He (Laurinaitis) knew about my passion for Japanese wrestling. I made no secret about it. I would talk about it all the time. I expressed to him I wanted to leave here on good terms. There are guys that have left here in the past and have returned, who have done well. Japan is where I always wanted to be. When I presented it to him in those terms, because I didn’t speak to Vince [McMahon], I asked him to speak to Vince for me. He just understood that I wasn’t happy and needed to go. He was very accommodating. That was on a Tuesday at SmackDown!. He called me that Thursday to tell me he spoke to Vince, and Vince agreed to let me out. I can’t tell you how happy I was.”

    ADR says the only person he’s fighting is Rey Rey and it doesn’t matter since MVP couldn’t handle him anyways.
