MVP Signs With New Japan, Former WWE Diva Now A Hair Stylist



TMZ.com reports that sources close to former WWE star Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) indicate that the one-time United States Champion signed a deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling over the weekend.

The contract is for at least one year. He makes his debut Feb. 20.

TMZ also reports that MVP’s criminal background made it difficult for him obtain a visa to travel to Japan.

“Burke – who spent over nine years behind bars after being convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery when he was just 16 – had to fight tooth and nail to get the requisite visa given Japan’s anti-felon policy,” TMZ noted.

– Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette checked out of an undisclosed rehab center Sunday after completing treatment for alcohol and other problems, reports The Associated Press. He entered rehab nearly a month ago.

– In the “Where Are They Now?” files, former WWE Diva Kristal Marshall now works as a hair stylist for the WISP Hair Studio in Parker, Colorado. She announced last April that she split with Bobby Lashley, whom she had one son with.
