M.V.P's interview on Opie and Anthony was truly amazing(the bit about the bad breakfast from the WWE and the bad breakfast condemnation email proceeded this).

MVP, the reigning United States Champion, was in to promote this weekend's Royal Rumble at Madison Square Garden.

One of his stories involved on about how he into prison: Piracy. MVP got sold out by a co-conspirator who got found out by his father and the person got immunity for testimony implicating MVP who was involved with piracy of a casino boat at the age of 16. Unfortunately or fortunately for the rat, he died while MVP was in jail for 9½ years of a 18½ year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery. In jail MVP was exposed to its culture and told some interesting stories of time in there. There are lots fags in prison and they dress-up as wussies(Erock joke here). There are many guards that have power trips and are corrupt but there are also ones that are respected if they treat the inmates fairly. Corruption such as guards looking the other way during visiting hours and MVP getting written-up and sent into solidarity in winter for 60 days for being on the bad side of a correctional officer who took a small fire as trying to set the whole prison on fire.

MVP used wrestling as a hobby with the help of a wrestler/corrections officer while on work release and eventually became a wrestler on the independent circuit. He got noticed by Chris Benoit and got lots of support from him. MVP was shown interest by the WWE's management but he needed a gimmick; he remembered how certain celebrities can be ungrateful pricks and chose a arrogant, self-obsessed athlete partially inspired by the fictional NFL wide receiver Rod Tidwell as his character. MVP was totally surprised by Chris Benoit's actions since they worked together on the WWE.

Uber wrestling fan, "Primetime" Sam Roberts was brought in with pre-prepared questions that made Sam sound silly and annoyed MVP which was very funny coming from the serious tone of the prison stories. Than admitted to witting some of the more obnoxious questions. Eventually Sam was able to talk with MVP and discuss what he liked about his performance on WWE such as the inflatable tunnel entrance and his arrogant persona. MVP said he has a Malcolm X tattoo on his chest and dissed people who speculate online. MVP then signed Sam's memorabilia.

The Than & Sam Show for this week is sponsored by the WWE's Royal Rumble this Sunday.

I gotta say, im a jeff ross fan, and i dont blame him, but following the "fashion police" joke, i have never in my life heard a man kiss anyone's ass like jeff ross kissed MVP's. everytime he opened his mouth it was to express how great he thought MVP's rags-to-riches story was, or how articulate he is. It was cringe inducing and hilarious. Hopefully we get to hear more jeff ross in the future, without a potential murderer in studio.

Hah, spoken like someone who enjoys watching sweaty men in underwear roll around with each other and pretend fight.

It was a weird situation. I thought the steriods freak overreacted quite a bit. I also think after this and the Jericho interview, they should start having security in the room or not have these guys.

What a fucking baby, to get his feelings hurt over such a silly joke. And I'll admit, after that, it was a good interview. But don't be such a douche and act like that. And if he touched Jeffry, that jew would take him to the cleaners.

I was a bit pissed how Jimmy didn't come to his aide more after the Jericho thing. But I'll give him a pass since he was really fucking sick and being a trooper for the show at that point.

It's clearly evidence these guys are all on roids given the fact that none of them can take a joke, I wish they'd cut their ties from this ridiculous sport that.

Fuck MVP, he should still be rotting in jail the miserable fuck.

It was a good interview. frankly, i too was really surprised at how articulate the guy is given his past. although it should be noted that he nearly got away with it all, so he's clearly got some smarts.

but i'm sure that his share of that stolen money pales in comparison to a good WWE contract anyway.

My favorite part was the fashion police joke. A comic making fun of someone who could kick his ass symbolizes what the O and A show means to me. Nobody is invincible from being poked fun at and nothing is sacred.

Ross should have been punched in the face not for the joke but for how corny it was. "Fashion police"??
Norton's "Blink Off" line was alot funnier.

MVP was dressed in Gucci, Armani, Coogi whatever... expensive ass clothing Ross was saying looks horrible on MVP. It was a valid line.

Ohhh... he's the United States Champion.

Yeah, and Rocky Balboa was the Heavyweight Champion of the World after he defeated Ivan Drago. :icon_roll

WWE... silliest shit on the planet.

Dude if this isn't sarcasm, you need to come off this houlier than thou attitude you have towards wrestling fans. Since the Jericho incident, I have seen alot posts of people saying suddenly they have a problem with wrestling. The Jericho incident was cringe radio at its best and all parties involved have moved on. The MVP interview was very good and he did a good job rolling with the punches. I have enjoyied Jeffrey Ross' comedy in the past, but his "fashion police" joke was hack.

The WWE and O and A show have a long hsitory together. The boys have had many wrestlers in the studio in the past and there has never been a violent confrotation. The Jericho incident also wasn't the first cringe radio moment involving a wrestler, i.e. see the Rock at WNEW. But they were able to move pass that and continue to have a mutual relationship. In fact wrestlers have given us some good radio, Triple H and Mick Foley come to mind.

In conclusion, I gained some more respect for MVP after that interview. Being able to put his life back together, after comitting a crime. I hate to be that guy, but if you don't like it when wrestlers come into the studio, well XM offers many other channels you can listen to, till the interview is over.

I thought it was a nice ballsy barb he threw, and maybe MVP was playing his character. I'm more mad that Jeff backed down after that and didn't push it like Jimmy did. I saw it as the jock attitude that Jimmy so loathes.

It seems the WWE-ers (who lost their name to a panda lol) here get defensive anytime someone dares to joke about their beloved diaper wearing roid monsters.

The Chris Jericho thing was fine, because Jimmy stood his ground, and there was some leeway on where Jericho was coming from. Here it was a throwaway clothes joke and it suddenly is like Jeffrey took a dump into MVP's grandmother's mouth. Grow a freaking backbone, lighten up. Then he got the kid gloves treatment after that which really annoyed me.

Sure it was a decent interview, but the guy didn't laugh once or seem to be able to roll with the punches. Was he just playing his persona or is he always a douche who takes himself too seriously?

And if it was so hack, why did it get runner up Line of the Day and Opie saying that was a great line at the end?

I was just waiting for Jimmy to interrupt him mid-sentence with:

"We get it, you're tough"

Let's make one thing perfectly clear here... it's more than obvious that O&A and Jimmy are NOT wrestling fans. Between the three of them, they probably haven't actually a watched a combined total of even ten minutes of "professional wrestling".

The history between the O&A show and "professional wrestling" is not one of mutual respect and admiration. O&A have WWE wrestlers in as guests because they're paying sponsors, and because it's interesting to see the real personalities behind the silly personas of the people who are involved in the ridiculous folly that is the WWE.

Don't kid yourself that O&A give two shits about some wacky WWE wrestler's "accomplishments in the ring"... and don't kid yourself that they'd actually waste two seconds of their lives watching a WWE event unless they were paid(and paid well) to do it.

I agree, I liked it as well. I wonder why Ant didnt give his views on how easy it is in prison. I dont think MvP would have agreed with him, but Ant thinks its easy in there....:huh:

I thought the MVP interview was pretty good. He was extremely open and honest about everything they asked him which is what made the interview good.

I know most of the people thought the prison stuff was interesting and I did too but I thought they asked him too many questions about it. It was like 90% about it.

I know that because they have said in the past they hardly ever watch wrestling. You can't disagree that the partnership benefits both parties involved.
