Montel Vontavious Porter, aka MVP or Alvin Burke Jr. or Hassan Hamin Assad or Antonio Banks, is a professional wrestler featured on USA Network's "WWE Raw."

Montel Vontavious Porter, also known as MVP, became SmackDown's gem acquisition on September 27, 2006, when then-General Manager Theodore Long and Porter came to a lucrative contract agreement.

Signing Porter was not easy. Despite the fact that he had yet to step in a SmackDown ring, MVP was hyped by his agents as "the most talented free agent in the game," and he was in high demand from several organizations. Despite Long's requests, MVP made it clear that he wasn't getting in the ring until a contract was signed, because as MVP's saying goes, "no contract, no contact."

Porter is flashy and cocky, but he has been able to prove himself in the ring, winning multiple championships and defeating the likes of Kane, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair and Batista along the way.

MVP soon found himself tag team champions with Matt Hardy, the No. 1 contender to his United States Championship. Although the pair were not the best of friends, they made very effective champions, even though MVP constantly insisted that he was the entire reason for their success. Unfortunately for Matt, MVP's true motive for partnering with him was to keep him from challenging him in singles competition. When Matt pushed the issue, MVP double-crossed him and caused Matt a serious injury, forcing him to leave SmackDown once again. Upon his return, Hardy not only cost MVP the Money in the Bank Match at WrestleMania XXIV, but inevitability the United States Championship as well.

MVP's main goal seems to constantly prove that he is better than anyone who steps in the ring with him. He is a smooth talker at the mic, as evident as MVP hosts "The VIP Lounge," and a force to be reckoned with any time he steps between the ropes.
