Well, at least it would make sense. You know, because he's BALLIN'.

TNA, though it's ship seems to be sinking fast, is pushing right along with a new storyline centered around a "mystery investor" who signed the American Wolves, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, to contracts right under the nose of company President Dixie Carter.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, the storyline is being done to introduce a surprise character, and it might be former WWE star MVP:

"It's the introduction of a surprise guy. There you go. MVP. I don't know (but) I think that's who it is. I think so, yeah. I could be wrong, but I think so, yeah. I mean, the timing's right, right? He's supposed to start there in a couple weeks and the day after I hear he's made his deal, I hear about this investor storyline. It could be, but maybe it's someone else."

It would make some sense, considering the character he's portrayed in the past, but he's currently denying that he's signed a contract with anyone and maintaining that he's a free agent as of right now.

Since leaving WWE, MVP has worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling, though that relationship ended late last year so he could return home to focus on other projects. He has been open on his Twitter about possibly signing with a stateside promotion.

Stay tuned.
