– Former WWE writer Andrew Goldstein originally appeared on The Universal Wrestling Podcast, and he revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long was originally planned to work as the manager for MVP after he debuted on SmackDown way back in 2006. However, plans ultimately fell through since Long couldn’t take bumps and it was decided there was little upside to having Long as the working manager for MVP. Goldstein stated the following (via WrestlingInc.com):

“The original end to the story was that Teddy Long was going to be his agent and that it was going to be a Teddy Long heel turn as like, he was playing both sides. ‘I’m the GM of Smackdown, but I’m also representing this high-priced free agent’. But then, Teddy couldn’t take bumps and there was just like, no upside to having Teddy as a working manager. So we never really paid off the whole story of who MVP’s agent was.”
