The show opens up and the pyro goes off around the stage as Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us to TNA Xplosion. They quickly recap the last episode of iMPACT Wrestling, talking about the continuation of the TNA Knockouts Championship Tournament, the return of Garett Bischoff, and the effect he and Ethan Carter III had on the Bound For Glory Series, specifically concerning Jeff Hardy’s match with Samoa Joe. They then talk a little bit about the situation surrounding Jeff Hardy and Willow, and what EC3 and Garett Bischoff are doing about it. They then show us the updated Bound For Glory Series Leaderboard before announcing that two more Bound For Glory Series Matches are going to take place!
All of a sudden they are cut off by the sound of MVP’s music. MVP makes his way out to the ring in a very expensive suit and looks utterly pissed off. MVP makes his way down the ramp and when he gets to the end of the ramp he grabs a mic from a stagehand and the chair he was sitting in. MVP throws the chair into the ring and makes his way up the steel steps and into the ring. He then grabs the chair and sets it up right in the middle of the ring, then unbuttons his suit jacket and sits in the chair and goes to speak as he is being booed by the audience.
MVP begins speaking and talks about how it is absolutely ridiculous that not only is he not in the Bound For Glory Series, he hasn’t been featured on TNA Television at all since Kurt Angle took over as Executive Director of Wrestling Operations. Not on iMPACT Wrestling, not on Xplosion, not on television period. He says that he wasn’t even supposed to be on the show, he wasn’t scheduled, but he heard Kurt was out of the building doing press for TNA so he decided to come out here and make his own time if Kurt wasn’t going to give him any. He says that his name is MVP for a reason, and that’s because it means something, it stands for something… that he is the Most Valuable Playa in TNA! He says the fact that Kurt Angle can’t realize that goes to show his own stupidity and how blind Kurt is to talent and why Angle should have never replaced him as Executive Director of Wrestling Operations in the first place.
The crowd continually boos MVP, and he doesn’t seem to care as he just continues speaking.
MVP says the fact that Kurt Angle is the one holding a grudge against him, and taking it out on him by not putting him on television makes no sense at all. He says that he should be the one holding a grudge, the one with a vendetta against Kurt because Angle replaced him as Executive Director of Wrestling Operations. He says that’s another bone he has to pick, being replaced as Executive Director of Wrestling Operations. He says he was doing an absolutely fine job and everything he was doing was in the best interest of company, he was doing what was best for business. He says that now that Kurt Angle is in charge, he is running TNA into the ground, and it’s by making simple mistakes like not featuring MVP on TNA TV. MVP says that if he was still in charge nothing like this would happen, he says heck Kurt Angle isn’t even here, he is out doing “press” for the company, whatever that means, but it goes to show how much Kurt actually cares about TNA and the company’s direction.
The crowd is soundly booing MVP at this point, but it is not deterring him in speaking his mind as he continues on talking.
MVP says that and since Kurt isn’t here, and since he isn’t going to get any TV time with Kurt around, he is going to continue to stay out here and take advantage of the opportunity by continuing to take up all the television time by airing more of his grievances, and he has a lot of grievances with Kurt Angle and TNA. MVP then says that they can go ahead and cancel the two Bound For Glory Series Matches because he is highjacking this episode of Xplosion. So he tells everyone to sit back, relax and enjoy the show, and specifically pay attention to and listen closely to what he has to say because things are about to get very interesting. He tells the people at home not to touch the remote and change the channel because he is going to be here all show, sitting in this chair, airing his grievances against Kurt Angle and TNA!
MVP starts airing his grievances by first going after and attacking the fans.
MVP says one of his grievances is with the people in the crowd and the people watching at home on TV. He says they are just as big a part of the problem why he isn’t on TV as Kurt Angle is. He says they buy into and buy the merchandise of the people on the roster who pander to them, and by pandering to you they get put on TV. MVP says that’s another problem and a grievance he’s got, the people on the roster pandering to the fans to get on TV. MVP says it’s not his problem that he is the Realest Playa in the Room and will shoot straight with everybody and tell you how it is, specifically how he has been telling people he is the Most Valuable Playa in TNA, and deserves to be known as the Main Event Playa in TNA.
We head to a commercial break as MVP is still talking while sitting down in the middle of the ring.
We come back from the commercial break as Mike Tenay and Taz enlighten us on the situation telling us that nothing has changed during the commercial break except for MVP continuing to rant and rave while sitting in the middle of the ring, literally highjacking the Xplosion show.
MVP is continuing to talk until all of a sudden all of the audience’s attention is directed towards the entrance ramp, and MVP is wondering what is going on and why people aren’t paying attention to him, and he stops talking and shifts in his chair to turn towards the entrance ramp where he sees three men, Al Snow, Pat Kenney (the former Simon Diamond), and Tommy Dreamer, the TNA Backstage Producers, making their way down the entrance ramp towards the ring. The three men walk into the ring and surround MVP as he continues to sit down and MVP lowers the mic, but the mic is still able to pick up some of what the men are saying.
MVP asks what this is all about, and Al Snow tells him he can’t be having MVP highjack the show, and he is going to politely ask him to go back to the backstage area. Pat Kenney tells MVP that they have a show to run and two Bound For Glory Series Matches to get to, and he is cutting time short. Tommy Dreamer asks him to just come on and go to the back and that they don’t want any problems. MVP, continuing to sit, asks what they are going to do about it, and both Al Snow and Tommy Dreamer reach for the arms of MVP as they are going to attempt to escort him to the back, and MVP freaks out and stands up and tells them not to touch him or his expensive suit. Pat Kenney once more asks MVP to come on and go to the back and MVP then grabs the chair folds it up, and acts like he is going to head to the back and as Al Snow and Tommy Dreamer turn their backs to him to head to the back, MVP turns around and cracks the chair right across the skull of Pat Kenney, who rolls out of the ring slowly.
Al Snow and Tommy Dreamer quickly turn around and run towards MVP, trying to stop him from the attack with the chair, but MVP rams the chair into the gut of both Snow and Dreamer and then smacks the chair right across the back of both of them knocking them down. MVP then takes off his suit jacket and tie, and rips his shirt as the crowd is loudly booing him now. He has the chair in hand as he looks down at the destruction he has left and then looks back up at the crowd. MVP then seems to snap again and grabs Al Snow by the head and lifts him up to his feet while throwing the chair down to the ground. MVP then grabs Snow by the head in a single underhook and hits him with the Oyasumi DDT onto the chair. MVP then gets back up and stares at the downed Al Snow whom is out and MVP then kicks Al Snow out of the ring. MVP then turns back towards the ring and sees Tommy Dreamer starting to move. MVP then kicks the chair towards the center of the ring, grabs Dreamer by the head and picks him up to his feet and puts him in a single underhook and drops him too with an Oyasumi DDT on the chair. MVP then stands again, grabs the chair and looks around the ring at the destruction he has left in his wake. MVP then makes his way out of the ring and is going to make his way up the ramp but sees Pat Kenney moving in his path and MVP cracks the chair over the skull of Pat Kenney once more knocking him back down and out. MVP then backs his way up the ramp, holding the chair, as he continually is saying I’m the Most Valuable Playa, I’m the Main Event Playa, while having a smirk on his face.
