Alvin Burke's on screen name is Montel Vontavious Porter who is an arrogant athlete who is full of himself. Before getting into wrestling Burke actually served nine years of an 18 year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping. He first appeared on Smackdown in August of 2006 and fueded with Kane. He then began a long fued with Chris Benoit and is currently as of September, 2007 fueding with Matt Hardy. MVP has claimed that he is better than Matt at anything and has been challenging Matt to many different competitions. One on one basketball games, arm wrestling, a boxing match and the list goes on. MVP became tag-team champion with his odd partner Matt Hardy when they took the titles from Deuce and Domino, they ended up losing it later to the Miz and Jim Morrison. MVP is also the United States Champion. MVP currently lost a couple non title matches to Batista but won when it counted and defended his United States Championship. He competed in the 'Money in the Bank' match at Wrestlemania XXIV but was not able to get the win. On April 27, 2008 MVP battled rival Matt Hardy at Backlash for the United States Championship. MVP lost his title to Matt Hardy after holding it for nearly a year. MVP then started feeling like he was unappreciated on Smackdown and let everyone know how he felt, even Smackdown GM Vickie Guerrero. MVP wanted to renegotiate his contract but continually felt disrespected by Vickie. Soon the 2008 WWE draft would come and MVP was probably the only WWE wrestler who was wishing to be drafted. Unfortunately for him he wasn't, as MVP stood on Smackdown.
One guy who did get drafted was Mr. Kennedy who came to Smackdown from Raw. On the July 11, 2008 edition of Smackdown as MVP sat at the commentary table with J.R and Foley; Mr. Kennedy had a match and as he was introducing himself with the mic he talked about how he is once again changing Friday night Smackdown (he used to be on Smackdown). He also made some rude references toward MVP when he said that he is the real MVP of Smackdown catching MVP's attention. Nothing ever esculated after that as it seemed like this was a feud that the WWE thought of running with but thought not of after.
On the July 25, 2008 edition of Smackdown during the VIP Lounge Jeff Hardy was MVP's guest. MVP got real personal with Hardy by bringing up his house that burned down, Jeff's dog and Jeff Hardy's overall character. This led to a feud between the two. They battled it out on August 17, 2008 at Summerslam and MVP was able to get the victory.
On September 7, 2008 MVP competed in the Smackdown scramble match for the WWE title. MVP did not win though as Triple H retained his WWE title.
MVP started having trouble getting one more victory, something he used to do on a normal occasion. MVP needs just one victory to earn him some bonus incentives from the WWE. Unfortunately for him, he is on the worst losing streak of his WWE career. MVP had a sure win on the November 21, 2008 edition of Smackdown as he battled an amateur wrestler. His match though was interrupted by the great Khali, the distraction allowed the amateur to roll up MVP and get the win.
On November 23, 2008 at Survivor Series MVP would be on team JBL. Team JBL asso had the Miz, John Morrison and Kane. Their opponents were Team HBK, joining Michaels on his team were Rey Mysterio, Cryme Tyme and the great Khali. Khali ended up eliminating MVP from the match as Team HBK ended up winning the match.
Week after week MVP carried on his losing streak and every week Mr. Kennedy would come out and mock him about it. On the January 16, 2008 edition of Smackdown MVP had to face the Big Show in a Last Man Standing match. This match was ordered by Smackdown GM Vickie Guerrero. The match was made to punish Triple H, if MVP lost the match then Triple H would no longer be part of the 2009 Royal Rumble. Even though the heel MVP had not ever been liked by fans since coming to the WWE the crowd was chanting "MVP", "MVP", "MVP" during the match. MVP didn't disappoint as he looked impressive in the match against the giant. Big Show got counted out and MVP won the match. The long losing streak had ended!
The following week on Smackdown MVP would battle Chavo Guerrero in a match and won the match via pinfall to get himself a two match winning streak going. MVP was really hearing it from the crowd as MVP seemed to be loved dearly by the fans. After the win, MVP spoke of the United States championship he once held and said that he plans to get it back.
On March 20th, 2009 during Smackdown's 500th show anniversary MVP would get a chance at the United States Championship against Shelton Benjamin. The crowd now began to love MVP and he did not disappoint them as he hit his Playmaker trade mark move and got the win to once again be the United States Champion.
