While I'm not surprised by this news, it still fucks me up:

The WWE announced today that they have released Hassan Hamin Assad, a.k.a. Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP):

World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar MVP as of December 2, 2010. WWE wishes MVP the best in all future endeavors.

MVP noted on his Twitter that he was not fired, and he had requested for his release.

"No need for alarm," he wrote. "I did not get fired . I asked for & received my release. I felt it was time to go international & freshen things up.

"They're not screwing me this time. They're actually DOING RIGHT by me ! They've honored MY request."

More shortly.

You had to figure this was going down at some point; there had been talk of MVP not being happy, but most of that was just cast aside as rumors. Whatever the case may be, he still had a number of quality matches on Smackdown, without real week-to-week storylines, or the proper push a star of his caliber has. Hell, I remember JR bigging up a promo of his from a few weeks ago, and getting hype over seeing MVP put over Cody Rhodes on fucking NXT! Dude was talented, and entertaining, and I'm pissed I won't get to see him in any capacity on WWE television. He's saying he's going international, so I'm thinking Japan off the top of my head. Hopefully he comes back to the US and is seen in the limelight again. I always rode for dude. We wish you the best, MVP!
