MVP Talks Mismanagement In TNA, His Favourite Wrestling Company

Former WWE Superstar MVP

Causal Wrestling fans only know MVP for his stint with WWE but the former United States Champion has worked for many famous wrestling companies in his career so far including TNA, Lucha Underground and more.

The former WWE Star who is currently working for NJPW recently had an interview with The Roman Show where he talked about a variety of wrestling related topics. Below are some of the highlights from his interview:

Pitching New Japan World to The NJPW President in 2011:

“I remember having a meeting with President Naoki Sugabayashi in 2011 and I pitched New Japan World back then because there is a huge English speaking audience that wanted access to the product,” MVP recalled. “I guess it was just matter of timing.”

Mismanagement of TNA:

“I don’t know what to say about them it’s constant mismanagement. Some of the greatest talent came from there, guys like Samoa Joe, A.J. Styles, Bobby Roode. You have all these guys that aren’t there anymore. TNA was must successful under Jeff Jarrett’s leadership. Under Dixie Carter, it spiraled under. I was hoping Jeff Jarrett would raise it, but I don’t know, it remains to be seen.”

If TNA should shut down:

“Our industry needs TNA. I never understood fans that hoped TNA goes out of business. We need a strong solid company for guys to continue to work that can make money and do well. That’s just stupid to me. I don’t like orange soda, but I don’t wish Sunkist goes out of business. I just don’t drink it.”

His favorite wrestling company:

“New Japan is my personal favorite wrestling company. Working there was my dream. It was my dream to wrestle in the Tokyo Dome. I am happy the WWE Universe is being exposed, in my opinion, to the best wrestling on the planet.”
