MVP apparently upset members of WWE management by making fun of one of the testers who watches the WWE wrestlers while they submit urine samples in a cup. His comments inspired WWE’s head of talent relations John “Johnnny Ace” Laurinaitis to hold a locker room meeting to indirectly address the incident. Laurinaitis instructed talent to be respectful to the testers.
MVP wasn’t happy that Ace made such a fuss over the situation, and those who were aware of MVP’s joke knew the meeting was obviously about him.
There has been some tension between MVP and management prior to this, stemming from agents telling him to work more like Shelton Benjamin and feeling that he wasn’t responding well to the orders.
