In somewhat of a surprise move, MVP has been released by the WWE. But, according to MVP on his Twitter account, he is the one who asked for the release:
"We all have many dreams. Realizing one sometimes prevents you from realizing another. Decisions must be pondered & made ! Stand by ..."
"No need for alarm. I did not get fired . I asked for & received my release. I felt it was time to go international & freshen things up."
As for the WWE, they released the normal short statement on the move:
"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."
