Former WWE United States Heavyweight Champion MVP has made history, as the Superstar from the 305 defeated Toru Yano earlier this evening at the old ECW Arena in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to become the very first New Japan Pro Wrestling Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion.
MVP, who apparently left WWE on very good terms with Chairman Vince McMahon and Talent Relations Executive John Laurinaitis, has long professed his love for the New Japan style, and gave a moving speech after his historic title victory.
In related news, The Heyman Hustle‘s George Tahinos has posted the very first series of photos of MVP as champion, which you can see by clicking on the appropriate links below.
