MVP Comments On Japanese Earthquake

Former WWE Superstar MVP tweeted the following after a massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan last night:


"I just experienced my 1st Japanese EARTHQUAKE!!! WOW!!! Aftershocks are pretty strong. I LOVE IT HERE! #Kokujin Gojira.

When these Japanese people went running & screamin I thought they were afraid of ME! Kokujin Gojira!

So I heard Sendai, where I debuted for NJPW was the epicenter. 7.9 is no laughing matter. I hope there were no fatalities! Positive vibez!

Service is in & out. Safe @ the hotel & EVERY1 is in the lobby. No1 is allowed upstairs. State of emergency. Earlier I had NO IDEA severity!

I walked back from Asuksa. Can't get upstairs here now. Sendai is in BAD shape. My heart goes out!

My phone doesn't seem to be able to make or receive calls. My txt msging isn't working. Miracle of miracles twitter is fine.

On the 19th floor Tokyo Dome hotel. It's swaying noticeably atm but just another way less severe after shock. Stand Still traffic outside!

NHK (news) showing local damage. Serious infrastructure damage. Roads SPLIT & DROPPED several feet in some places. Another after shock now.

Phone lines are down & cell lines are congested. BBM & twitter are my only means of communication. Good luck catching a fone convo!

AIRPORT?! Call me crazy but I'm not going home until they SEND me home. It'll take more than a disaster 2 derail my dreams! I LOVE JAPAN!

The Japanese are a very strong people. They will mourn & grieve & then bounce back ! I will entertain them as long as they'll have me! #NJPW

Another after shock. The hotel is swaying pretty good! Some people pay good money for a thrilling ride like this. SCARY ! Humor > Fear"

Ok now I'm just getting pissed off. Everytime I'm JUST about to fall a sleep ANOTHER aftershock rocks the hotel just enuff to wake me!
