The heated spat appeared to be real, but it never escalated into a fight. The confrontation ended with Jericho telling MVP that he didn’t work or fight with jobbers and entered the elevator. This led to MVP screaming about it since he didn’t take the insult too kindly.
Reasons behind Chris Jericho and MVP’s hatred for each other
MVP and Chris Jericho had shared the WWE locker during the late 2000s, and both superstars had a feud in 2008 and 2009. The heated exchange at Houston last month is believed to have escalated since Jericho blocked MVP in 2020. The former AEW World Champion had tweeted about the time it took to finalize the results of the US presidential election between Biden and Trump. It led to MVP asking Jericho to remove the tweet as soon as possible.
I can’t see it because I’m blocked. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

MVP reportedly told a fan that he believed the Twitter block came as a result of him replying to Jericho’s US presidential election tweet. MVP later reacted to the hotel incident by stating that the dirt sheets got the details wrong.
