"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." -- Lord Acton
MVP's six month tenure in TNA can be summed up by this famous quote. What started as a breath of fresh air in TNA and someone to counter Dixie Carter's agenda, turned into a self-indulgent nightmare.
When MVP joined TNA as a minority investor and later as the Director of Wrestling Operations, his intentions seemed honorable.
With his background as a wrestler, he was viewed as being a friend to the locker room, understanding what it was like to be in their shoes. He gave an up-and-coming tag team like The Wolves an opportunity to win the Tag Team World Championship and a wrestling journeyman like Eric Young the opportunity of a lifetime to challenge and win the World Heavyweight Championship.
But sadly over time, MVP's real intentions became known. He was not acting in the best interest of the roster or the company -- he wanted to consolidate all the power, including the World Championship, for himself.
But like so many powerful people, MVP fell victim to his own hubris and the TNA Board of Directors forced him to abdicate his reign and replaced him with the Olympic Gold Medalist and NEW Executive Director of TNA, Kurt Angle.
So what happens now? Does MVP fall in line behind Kurt Angle's leadership and try to legitimately earn his way back for a shot at the title? Or like Napolean, will he use his exile to plot his return to power? Now that Lashley is champion, does he even need MVP anymore? One thing is for sure, we will find out tomorrow on Spike TV during #IMPACTLive.
