MVP doesn't know how much longer Angle will be with TNA...
- The Mirror recently interviewed TNA wrestler MVP. Below are some highlights:
MVP on possibly not facing Kurt Angle and Angle's current injury status: "Before I signed I said there were three people I absolutely had to work with: Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and Kurt Angle. Kurt's out with knee surgery - I don't know how long he's going to be out, and I'm not really sure at this stage of his life and his career, how much longer he'll be with us - I don't want to speculate. I do know if you lace up a pair of boots, Kurt Angle is someone you want to get in the ring with. If that doesn't happen, I will truly feel like this has been a missed opportunity for me - selfishly."
On Vince McMahon giving him a chance: "When society wouldn't give me an opportunity to earn a minimum wage because I was a convicted felon, Vince McMahon gave me an opportunity to earn more money than both of my parents had made in their lives combined and become an international star. [Then]I asked to leave, and he allowed me to go - and said the door's open when you want to come back. I'm totally indebted to Vince McMahon for both of those opportunities."
MVP on his future in wrestling: "I still wanna wrestle in Mexico, before all's said and done. When I'm ready to retire, my goal is to retire in Japan. We'll see - I don't know what's coming down the road. I know for the foreseeable future, if a TNA Title run is on the cards for me, that'd be a huge honor."
