The old adage proves true, there really is strength in numbers. Even more strength when those numbers include TNA World Heavyweight Champion Lashley. Week after week, challengers step up to the plate and are put back down by The Destroyer. Impressively, Lashley has done much of his dirty work without MVP or Kenny King aiding him.
However, the three have proven that together, that may very well be unstoppable. Even after being removed from power by the TNA Board of Directors, MVP has asserted himself in the ring – bad knee and all. Kenny King is one of the very best young wrestlers today. And Lashley… well, it’s Lashley! Enough said.
This Thursday Team MVP will take on the team of Eric Young, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode. While both EY and Aries have proven to be formidable challengers, all eyes are on Bobby Roode at this point. He’s the man that is at the center of controversy, being suspended by MVP and kept out of the Championship scene. Many, Roode included, feel this is a sign that Team MVP is afraid to challenge Roode. One has to assume that if Roode can pick up a clean win this Thursday, it would get him closer to a one-on-one shot at Lashley.
