Former WWE star MVP denies he has signed with TNA IMPACT Wrestling

Former WWE superstar MVP has been connected to recent rumors that he has signed a deal with rival TNA Impact Wrestling, but the former United States Champion took to Twitter today to clear the air.

For the record, I am STILL very much a free agent and have not signed any contracts with anyone. That is official. -@the305MVP

If I DO sign a contract with a wrestling company, you'll hear it from ME. No speculation necessary. -@the305MVP

MVP left the WWE in late 2010 after requesting to be released by the company. From 2011 to early 2013, MVP was active in Japan with New Japan Pro Wrestling. While he competed there under the billing of "Black Godzilla", he became the first IWGP Intercontinental Champion. After finishing his contract with NJPW, the balling superstar focused on a television project with Lionsgate studios. MVP also dabbled in hip hop since his WWE departure, recording two rap singles which have been released on iTunes.

Pro Wrestling Examiner's Perspective: Sometimes wrestling fans turn speculation into facts out of pure hopefulness and that seems to be the case here. Kudos to MVP for being so actively transparent about his wrestling status and not leading fans along. No matter what is going on with MVP, TNA could use some fresh faced veteran talent on their depleted roster which has lost a parade of noteworthy talents in cost cutting measures since the summer of last year. It would be exciting to see MVP make a surprise entrance at Sunday's Royal Rumble for WWE, but there is no evidence at this time to indicate that will be a reality.
