MVP Speaks On His Days In Jail


Jun 27, 2006
Alvin Burke first entered professional wrestling after completing 9½ years of an 18½ year prison sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping which he started at the age of sixteen


In a recent interview with GoTriCities, WWE Superstar MVP spoke on his life prior to becoming a pro wrestler and his nine-and-a-half year prison sentence.

MVP said that he met a corrections officer who helped train him. "As a teen-ager, I ran the streets and got into all kinds of very serious trouble, which resulted in me going to prison for 9 1/2 years. While I was in prison I met a corrections officer who was an independent wrestler. Got out, started training with him and discovered that pro wrestling was my passion."

He also noted that felony record makes it hard to travel. "There are some countries that I’m not allowed into — Japan being one of them. When I go to Canada, there’s all kinds of legal paperwork that has to be done. There’s a special permit. For the most part, it’s been almost 20 years since my conviction and I haven’t been in trouble. There’ll be times I’m in the airport, they do a background check when I’m going to another country and they pull me to the side. Take me into a room and check my stuff out."
