MVP appeared on Chris Jericho’s “Talk is Jericho” podcast and gave an update on his knee injury. He said he’s currently in discussions with TNA’s creative team about whether or not he can work Eric Young at Slammiversary on Sunday.
He said he’s going to do whatever he can to make sure he can go. MVP said his doctor pushed back an MRI and that any surgery could be delayed until after he tested it in tthe ring.
MVP believes the injury is a torn meniscus but said he was able to put weight on his knee this week

MVP was injured last Friday night at a Preston City Wrestling show in the United Kingdom. He underwent x-rays there but they proved inconclusive and it was learned an MRI would be needed to evaluate the extent of the injury.
Richard Reacts: This doesn’t sound promising and I have to wonder why they’re putting off the MRI. When a professional athlete suffers a serious knee injury they get an MRI almost immediately. If there is a tear in one of the ligaments or in the meniscus, surgery is scheduled and performed as soon as possible so the athlete can begin rehabilitation. If MVP has a torn meniscus, it will be very difficult — if not impossible — to work a main event match at a pay-per-view. I would also question any medical team that would clear him to compete without doing an MRI on the knee, knowing he could do serious long-term damage.
Eric Young stated in a conference call earlier on Wednesday that he was planning to work MVP at Slammiversary.
