In an unfortunate turn of events, it looks possible TNA has lost its main event for the upcoming Slammiversary pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sun., June 15, 2014, at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. MVP, who was -- and still is as of this moment -- set to challenge Eric Young for the world heavyweight title, suffered a knee injury while working an independent show in Preston, UK over the weekend.
There's no report on what happened specifically, but during a tag match he was apparently brawling on the outside and he came up lame after something happened to his knee, forcing him to limp to the back.
The very next evening, he was back on crutches and informed the crowd he was forced to cancel the match due to "hearing a pop" in his knee. Initial x-rays didn't make clear the issue so an MRI was scheduled and he'll go from there.
There is no indication this is an angle and it appears MVP is legitimately hurt.
@LanceStorm Thank you! Fingers crossed...— MVP (@The305MVP) June 1, 2014
Obviously this would be a major blow to Slammiversary, an event that was always going to struggle to sell on PPV.
Stay tuned for any updates.
