During a recent interview with Busted Open Radio, MVP confirmed that he still has not signed an actual contract with TNA:
"As of this moment, we are still working out the crossing of T's and dotting I's so to speak. We have come to terms, but there is some minor legalities that still needs to be worked out. But as far as me and TNA are concerned, we are good. I've always wanted TNA to succeed, even when I was with the WWE. I said I had friends over there that I wanted to do well. The most prosperous times were the times of the Monday Night Wars. There were something like 12 million people watching wrestling. There were also guys too that I wanted to work with. Samoa Joe, I've been wanting to work with him since we were in the indies together. I don't think you want to lace up the boots if you don't want to work with Kurt Angle. I finally got a chance to work with Bobby Roode and I'm sure that's the first of many to come. It's a roster loaded with talent, I just think in the past there were some decisions that were made that probably weren't for the best, but hopefully those mistakes were recognized and now will be rectified."
