MVP debuted with TNA Wrestling at Thursday's Impact taping in Glasgow, Scotland, being revealed as the mystery investor. The segment will air on this week's show following the main event. Before taping his debut, MVP Tweeted the following:
As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, the two sides had agreed on money as of Tuesday but there were minor details still being worked out to make the debut a reality. TNA’s pursuit of MVP has been quite the process but the departure of AJ Styles was believed to be a big break through. We’re told this is when they bumped their offer to MVP, with some of the money that had been earmarked for AJ becoming available to get a deal done.
Dave Lagana, who works a creative writer in TNA, had pushed for MVP as he feels the former WWE superstar is someone he can build around.
