Details On MVP Using 'MVP' In TNA, The Trademark WWE Owns & Video Of His Debut

As seen on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling, MVP debuted in the company as MVP. He's able to use the name because it's a gimmick he created. However, he is not able to use the name Montel Vontavious Porter. This name is still owned by WWE. Below is a screen shot from the United States Patent and Trademark Office:

    and this ladies and gents is why TNA is doomed to fail .. should have sold to Jeff Jarrett and Toby Keith when they had a chance .. rehashing old WWE stars is not going to make me flip over to TNA .. even in CM Punk showed up in TNA I would only watch the first show to see what pipebombs he dropped after that why bother

    • Scott Davies

      CM Punk cannot sign with TNA as he is still under WWE contract. Only if CM Punk is released can he sign, but he would still have to wait 90 days before he could debut. MVP is a good addition here.

    I believe MVP had one of the longest losing streaks in WWE. I still like the guy but wont be tuning in to TNA.

      He’s got the goods but he didn’t matter in WWE. Why TNA chased him so hard is mystifying. Styles is far more valuable than MVP. What a joke.

  • David

    I have always liked MVP and thought he was severely underused in WWE, similar to Lashley’s run in WWE. However he will make no difference in TNA as nobody does. It’s too bad that he didn’t end up back in WWE because he could have come back and make a pretty solid impact.

    • Nostaljack

      I question any impact he might have made in WWE but he certainly doesn’t belong in TNA. I read about his entrance into TNA and all I could do was laugh. It’s utterly silly and I doesn’t matter. On top of that, he’s likely killed his chances of getting back to WWE in a meaningful way.
