MVP is now gone from TNA and his departure is due to the fallout from the Hernandez - TNA - Lucha Underground situation that we reported on a few days back. We noted that TNA was facing possible legal action after signing Hernandez while he was contracted to Lucha Underground. TNA received a cease & desist from Lucha Underground, causing them to edit Impact Wrestling footage and drop plans for The Beat Down Clan, and leading to Hernandez being released from TNA.

Hernandez was hired by TNA this most recent time after being strongly pushed by MVP as a good addition to The BDC. TNA officials made the decision to sign  Hernandez based on MVP's suggestion. TNA sources indicated to PWInsider that Hernandez told TNA that he was free of any contractual obligations to any other promotion before he was signed, and that he claimed he had a release from Lucha Underground and could legally sign with TNA. TNA reportedly included a clause in Hernandez' contract that made note of him presenting himself as legally being able to sign with TNA.

Lucha Underground sources indicated to PWInsider that Hernandez asked for a release but it was not granted. The release was apparently in the works but not finalized. Lucha Underground officially reportedly told Hernandez he could have his release and get out of filming future unconfirmed seasons but they wanted him to not appear anywhere on TV until August 5th, which is the date of their season finale. They also wanted him to follow a non-compete clause and after that expired he would be free to work wherever. Lucha Underground officials were fine with Hernandez finding work elsewhere and told him he could come back in the future but they had certain stipulations they wanted him to follow and instead, he appeared on TNA TV while he was also appearing for Lucha Underground, forcing Lucha officials to take action.

We noted before that TNA offered to pay Lucha Underground for the Hernandez appearances, they already had taped but Lucha Underground sources indicate that is not true. TNA sources say that after they received the cease & desist from TNA, Hernandez insisted he had a verbal release and provided proof there was a release in the works. TNA told Hernandez that if he wanted to take legal action against Lucha Underground then they would be happy to use his footage on TV and give him a deadline, which may have been this past Monday, to file the papers against Lucha Underground in a California court. This would have provided a temporary restraining order against his Lucha Underground contract and allowed Hernandez to appear on TNA TV. TNA made the decision to release Hernandez when that deadline passed and they had no word from Hernandez or his lawyer. 

Now MVP is gone from the company and PWInsider reports that it's related to the Hernandez issue. The decision to release MVP was apparently made on Thursday.

MVP gone? He wasn't really going anywhere , but he was star power anyway... They pretty much lost every main eventer they had except EC3, Young and Lashley, and they don't have the weight Angle, Sting or Styles had.

 

And the BDC doesn't exist anymore... I remember I said a few time ago that the BDC was almost over with the release of Hernandez, but I expected it to last longer...

 

TNA should close if they don't improve soon because they are sinking lower and lower, and that's too painful to watch...

They drag the factions out too long and have been doing it for the past few years. Not sure what they're going to do now.
