On December 2nd, 2010, MVP asked for his release from WWE; shocking everyone walking away from over a year left on his contract. This is an exclusive, candid discussion with MVP that will show you a side of him that the WWE never showed.

The full podcast runs almost ninety minutes (second part released on Wednesday) and in the first forty-five minutes we talk about why he left WWE, what prison was like, how he made Wrestlemania in a high-profile match in his first year, his relationship with Chris Benoit and more.
