MVP is undoubtely one of the most dependable superstars in WWE history. The former United States Champion has accomplished a lot in his pro wrestling career. More importantly, he is a man of integrity and knows when he did something wrong. It seems a former WWE Superstar tried to scam him to buy drugs.

MVP had a troubled upbringing and had several run-ins with the law during his youth. He spent six months in a juvenile detention center for robbery. Later, at the age of 16, he was sentenced to 18.5 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping and served 9.5 years of his sentence.

MVP didn’t let that trouble in his past derail his entire life. He turned everything around in a big way, and he became a household name as part of WWE. MVP later went out to wrestle in other companies, like his impressive run with Impact Wrestling.

The former United States Champion took to Twitter and shared a story about former WWE Superstar Pat Tanaka. MVP revealed that Tanaka tried to scam him when MVP was an indie wrestler so that he could buy drugs.


True story. Pat Tanaka tried to rip me off for crack money when I was a young indie wrestler. He called me & told me to wire him 300$ ASAP for a “wrestling license” in Japan & I would be making 2,500$ a wk + a 50$ a day per diem. He didn’t get the money but he DID gain an enemy.

MVP is currently engaged in being Omos’ manager, as they prepare for the giant’s biggest match at WrestleMania 39, where he will be squaring off against Brock Lesnar in singles competition. We’ll have to wait and see who will win the match.
